The garden is full of Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum) seed pods these days.
And remember how I said that Wild Geranium spreads via exploding seed pods that hurl the seeds several feet (with a good wind) from the mother plant?
So when my friend Jo ana came to help in the garden last week she took this very cool video of Geranium pods expelling their seeds. You can actually see the extremely tiny seeds flying away. She slowed it down a bit to make it more fun to watch.
Wild Geranium is a fine woodland native, and now it’s clear how it gets around so quickly.
