White Hosta

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 07:47

Last year I contacted Bowdens hostas ( a major hostage grower) to see if they stocked White feather hosta and they told me no they didn't as the hosta was a very bad grower and didn't even like being transported or moved in anyway. The hosta will definitely dislike being in the sun.

what is this plant?

It looks like a Euphobia Latherus, it is sayed to keep moles at bay. Don't know if it works.

The last one is Centaur Alba, you do see it growing wild but you can sometimes buy it in garden centres. It grows in crevices of walls or anywhere hot and sunny.

Mystery climbing gernaium

Posted: 14/06/2014 at 07:27

I also have Apple Blossom, not a climber and mine is not tall this is the second year I've grown it,  I do grow mine outside during the summer and yes the blossom does tend to go brown but you can pick this of.

More help needed please . . . .

I have one of these flowering for the first time, it is definitely a Phormium. Don't think it will grow from seed
