That's a huge improvement Hosta - it's a lovely tree - now you just need a few ferns and some foxgloves around it

But take it steady with that knee ((hugs))

Has the hail stopped Hosta, or have you been in the polytunnel? 

Can someone remind me to get some more Fish, Blood and Bone next time I go to the GC?

How long to leave seedlings before potting up?

Hi Scott

When the seedlings first grow they have two little 'seed leaves'  - after that they will start to grow proper leaves, shaped like the leaves on the adult plant.  That shows that the seedling has proper roots and can be pricked out. 

Only handle the seedling by the leaves, never hold it by the stem.

Oh, and the first rhubarb has been pulled and a crumble has been made

I've just had an hour in the garden - gooseberry bush has been pruned, autumn raspberries cut back, roses pruned (I know it's a bit early but I was in the mood, and it's a sheltered garden) and lots of perennial stems hacked down.  I've filled the brown bin with prickly stuff.  Is it tomorrow that our brown bin gets emptied or is it next Monday .. I shall have to watch the neighbours up the rise a bit, they always get it right.

Also look at the alpina type clematis - they flower early and then give a second flush later on and many of them are happy in shady spots
