Morning all. 

......... One a plus note, we're off to the theatre tonight to see Mozart's Marriage of Figaro.........


 

Maybe a little 'cat nap'  after lunch so you don't nod off in the theatre - just this once

Apologies from Wonky - she and her Lovely Hub have succumbed to really nasty colds - she sounds really 'clogged up' on the phone.  She's gone to work but her hub is at home in bed as it's impacted on his Sickle Cell condition and he's in pain 

Wonks says Hi to everyone

Type of hosta?

Oh yes, it could be - what a lovely view if it is.

Where's Hostafan got to?

Mind you, it would be asking a lot even of him to ID a hosta from that photo - there are sooooooooooo many

Hi all,

bought a white  anemone and it says plant at soil level, its  2 pieces of stringy root. do I just put it lying on top of soil and cover lightly  or will I put it in a pot until it grows. That soil level thing has me confused, usually just dig a hole,  put things in and they grow

 

Two pieces of root - are they joined together?  If so the join is the top of the plant. 

I'd put them in a two litre pot of John Innes No 2 loam based compost with some added leafmould and a bit of horticultural grit.  Plant with the top just at the surface of the soil and put some grit on top.

Place in a semi-shaded corner of the garden and stand well back

You'll soon get a decent sized plant ready to plant out into the garden.

Glad you had a positive day yesterday SW. 

Re the garden design package - it's a question that crops up on here from time to time - I'm not sure that we've found anything that has improved on paper and pencil - but I may well be wrong ... I'm sure the others will let you know if they've found something

I'd have thought nemerosa would not be on sale in that form at this time of year - it should be well into growth if not flowering.

Sounds more like Japanese anemones to me - Anemone x hybrida.   Mine are just getting into growth at the moment.
