I have a new man in my life

His name is Bill Wallis and he's an absolute charmer!  He's actually quite famous - google him if you've never heard of him.  The thing is, will I one day regret ever having invited him into my garden?   .........  or will I remain under his spell forever?  image

    ...I have a job to do, a house and garden to run, a Greyhound on speed and a husband who likes his dinner on the table....

    ....you may keep 'Bill Wallis' to yourself....image

    Lovely geranium... but it will take over your whole garden!

    Should be sold with A HEALTH WARNING!

    Perthshire. SCOTLAND .
  • Can you keep it under contol by cutting off the flower heads when they've gone over and before they set seed?

    ...I would think that would be very difficult to keep on top of...

    I don't think we should be too alarmist here though... I've grown these Pyrenean geraniums before - endressii and one called 'Wargrave' - pink ones - and yes, they seeded all over the place, but to be fair, I didn't find it too much of a chore... I quite liked to keep some... they hybridise with other Geraniums too...

    you've got it now, enjoy it and see how you get on... if it becomes too much then you will have to take appropriate measures...

    lots of plants seed don't they.. the popular Lavender 'Hidcote' for instance is becoming a nuisance in part my garden.. seedlings popping up even in gaps in the road which it borders... it's said that Hidcote sold in garden centre's are mostly seed raised... they should be 2 a penny... mind you, it's lovely...image

    to walk through a forest is to touch the past

    I have it all over my garden and I love it.  No idea where it came from - it just appeared years ago.  I couldn't possibly dig it out. image Weeds yes, flowers, definitely not. In fact, tomorrow I will dig up a clump, carefully, and put it behind my magnolia tree.image
