    Hardy Geranium Rozanne ... how to propagate....

    That's my understanding too- that they're sterile. Division for geraniums is the usual, and easiest method. I'm in a very small minority, as I really dislike it. :biggrin:

    Composting old teeshirts?

    I use them as rags for wiping things, but the Red Cross will take clothes that can't be worne again because they can get money for them.

    Thank you. I won't disturb the roots then, just tip it out of the pot and straight into a prepared hole in the ground. My soil is deep so it should be fine.

    Geum recommendations

    I have never had much luck keeping geums going, but I could be very tempted to try Maddy Prior or Etrixia from that website. :)Best look away before I get carried away! :biggrin:

    Geranium macrorrhizums should be happy there too. Might be taller than you want but Eurybia divaricata aka wood aster would also do well

    Doing more harm than good

    I've just taken delivery of a 20 metre roll of copper tape to put round my pots. That, combined with a garlic spray, has certainly helped in the past.
