Re: Hardy Geranium
Wow, the Geraniaceae site is impressive and makes a beginner like me
envious. I just made a Hardy Geranium wish list last night and found all
twelve are available there. Maybe I'll go vist them next time I am in the
San Francisco bay area. Right now though, I have a nice gift certificate for
a local nursery which my dear coworkers gave me when I left my job recently.
Luckily they carry a large selection of Hardy Geraniums, I plan to add about
10 to the 17 I already have (I got hooked 3 years ago when a friend gave me
starts of G. "Johnson's Blue" and G. Endressi "Wargrave Pink"). I was able
to buy the Bath and Jones book with the same gift certificate, a book I
coveted and borrowed from the library several times.
