Blasted geraniums

Yesterday I got a lot of gardening done – I watered my seedlings, deadheaded my roses and hydrangeas, pulled up a load of weeds, gave a few herbs a good prune and sprayed weed killer on the geraniums that have come up.

The geraniums have overtaken the bed in the front garden

Now, I always said I would never use weed killer – it’s such nasty stuff and definitely not good for the environment.  However, these are basically killing loads of my lavender and nepeta, which just about does my head in.  I have no idea whether it will work – Sod’s law is that I will just have killed off a load of plants that I actually like (and were expensive).

They've overrun the wildflower patch too
