I've not grown it, but have eaten it shredded in a salad, a bit like celeriac remoulade - really good.

Gg - love the pie   glad you liked it

Hosta, sounds to me a bit like chronic fatigue after a nasty virus and antibiotics ((hugs)).   Take some Selenium ACE to boost your immune system, and take it easy while your body recovers. 


BL - Hosta has no plans to visit East Anglia ..... yet!  I'm twisting his arm

Apart from all the wonderful gardens I've already told him about, I think they both would enjoy visting

and even if just for the wallpaper

Go on Hosta - plan a holiday in the not so far East

My only hesitation about laurel (and it has many good points) is that I've found that for it to look good it needs to be quite deep and Kc has little ones who will benefit from as big a garden as possible

Beech or hornbeam - you can clip that quite close so that it's narrow and you don't lose too much of your garden - and if you clip it close at the right time of year (August) it will keep it's autumn leaves through the winter - thus still hiding the fence in the winter months.
