Yay!  We have wheels!!!  A fuse has been replaced in a very hard to get to place ...... of course if it goes again it will be because there's another problem but the suspicion is that the fuse had been weakened by a problem with starting last year.  Fingers very crossed.


Hosta - that's as it should be until they know you're safe to drive- remember the Glasgow bin lorry tragedy.  Best get to the GP asap.

It's a gorgeous one isn't it?


When you need to prune it, please don't do what so many do and just reduce it's height and turn it into a pink shaving brush.


After flowering remove the oldest stems from low down near the base, leaving the younger growth - that way you'll keep the lovely fluid fountain effect.

Hi Torg 


I would leave the leaves well alone - when they die down they feed the bulb for the following year.  


I would let them flower, then feed them and let them die down - then perhaps split the clump up and replant giving them a bit more space.


Make sure they get enough water as if a pot is full of leaves rain will just run off and the soil will still be dry.

That looks like a Viburnum x bodnantense - possibly 'Dawn'


Should have a lovely perfume - especially on mild winter days
