ok.. this is not a big achievement but definitely thrilling!! If you are wondering WHY.. here’s…
1. Where i live, nurserymen make a weird questioning face when an over-enthusiastic girl asks them if geraniums have arrived for the season.. “GER-what!!??” is what i hear for a reply.. *sigh* No.. people don’t buy any annuals here that cost over Rs.30 and are not recognized by their old malis(gardeners)
2. Prices are now sky-high and what used to cost Rs.40 about 3 years ago is now selling at Rs.150!! Really!! It’s almost maddening.. so..
MORAL OF THE STORY: Buy packets of geraniums seeds online and sow them in your garden and be satisfied that you don’t have to roam around and across nurseries in every town you visit and hunt for colors in geraniums and lug them back to your garden with a questioning husband who doesn’t know where to fit in all the bags and the pots and plants and what-not! *why did i not think of it sooner*
I did have a packet of seeds from last year that gave only about 25% germination so fresh seeds were bought online from Biocarve seeds.. Quick delivery combined with third-day germination.. Very impressive!!
