Long story, but basically, Mother said I needed geraniums in my front garden border. I bought geraniums. Mother said, no, they were pelargoniums, and annuals rather than perennials.
The label in B and Q said they were geraniums.
Mother insisted they weren't. (They died at the end of last summer, so she was right.)
This year I bought more, but from the Boys' Brigade garden plant sale. Again, the label SAID -- but they weren't.
