I love white geraiums and last year I had some pure white plants from a
supermarket. I liked them so much I decided to take 10 cuttings last
September over winter them in my glass verander and plant them out this
year. All 10 cuttings survived ok and I have planted them into my garden
expecting them to be pure white as last year. They have flowered a very
pale pink, can anyone explain this?
I could not advise you to eat them, although i'll tell you i'd probably
eat them unless they're growing near spilt oil or chemicals, a septic
tank, stagnant water, some animal/s corpse/s or fresh animal feces,
because i'm so tight-fisted.
I suppose they COULD be potentially be harmful... you never know what
the previous tenants have chucked in that soil, but that'd still be the
case if you'd have decided to grow your own potatoes in there. but i
suppose as the e coli outbreak in Europe proves, shop bought veggies
COULD be potentially harmful too.
I thought we had agreed that you would be the patron saint of the
clueless, and deranged usenet travelers who found themselves in
"wrecked gardens", instead of David and I savaging them. I believe the
above qualifies. The the OP gives no clues as to the environment of the
"feral" potatoes except that they are in some kind of border, and
responding poster never tries to ascertain possible pollutants, but
instead rattles off a shopping list of possible dangers, blatantly
leaving out "radioactive waste".
Requesting information as to the length of occupancy and chemicals
applied could have shed some light on the puzzle. "A septic
tank, stagnant water, some animal/s corpse/s or fresh animal feces"
don't really enter in to it unless the OP plans on eating the potatoes
I think my curmudgeoning here is done.
Mad dog Republicans to the right. Democratic spider webs to the left. True
noway hozay. i'm on short rations today
and have to skip those. otherwise i would
be writing a novel on another group about
how proper landscaping saves more $ and
effort than trying to cover it over and
finding out later it still looks like crap.

wow, i guess you really told me, i just thought i'd try and answer seen
as nobody else was anywhere to be seen as was the case for my post about
since joining this site the other day i've noticed people only want to
say something helpful when they want to impose some sort of intellectual
superiority upon some other party.
anyway, i didn't say he/she should eat them.
i'll leave you obnoxious and cantankerous old drabs to stroke your
swollen egos as long as you're happy you've got 1 up on somebody.
this'll probably get removed or something, i don't care.
Good day, unhelpful berks.
