Not really Hosta, thanks all the same ......... but I think we might be building up to a thunderstorm ... it's warm enough to leave the toms outside in a sheltered spot, but I don't want them getting bashed about by the rain and hail. I'll have to try to find room for them at night in the little lean-to greenhouse somehow ... unless they can go in one of your polytunnels Hosta ?
The centre of the shrub looks a bit congested ... I would snip out some of the older stems and any dead ones, getting a bit of air flow in there too.

Remember last week when I was complaining about the cold?
This is getting a tad ridiculous now ...
Two different things.
The first looks like some sort of powdery mildew, often arising when plants are suffering from drought. Give them a jolly good soaking.
The second is colloquially known as Cuckoo Spit as it occurs about the time the cuckoo arrives here. Inside each little lump of foam you'll find a single froghopper larva - it won't damage your plants and will feed the wild birds. Nothing to worry about.
26.6C in the shade here in Norfolk

Ah ............ I was thinking of sorrel too, but that won't like it hot either.
Greek basil? Summer savory?
Marjoram - parsley - chervil
