I noticed your geranium - the zonal pelargonium that you said came back from its roots. I've had 3 of these pellies and all have died ... the branches suddenly turn brown and flop and eventually the plant dies. Would love to know what happened to yours and how you got it to come back. Mine are all still in their pots ... wondering if there's a chance for them.

Bernie, I think these are called Pelargonium grandiflorum. They are a bit different from the zonals. They were planted outside in a sounthern exposed garden, so it might have stayed warmer than usual during the winter. When I planted these, I had no idea they would return. But most of them came back to bloom another summer. Let's see if they return again, I'm curious if they have survived a colder winter this time.

Thanks Salix ... I wonder if mine were incorrectly labelled? I would not be surprised as I got them in the nursery section of a hardware store! I shall look up the pelargonium grandiflorum anyway - because one of mine looks exactly like the one in your photo - and see if I can find out more about their growth.

Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it's nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks. Sbobet Sbobet Casino

Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it? Sbobet Casino Online
