Hosta - I'll give you a ((hug)) on Wonky's behalf think she'd better keep her hostas in pots on her terrace - her garden is home to many happy slugs and snails

The Hosta Fireworks that I bought yesterday had only just been potted after splitting and apparently it's a 'slow grower' , but be patient and keep a space for one in your patch when mine is big enough to split

Hosta, I think you replied to a message I was editing .... sorry   I realised that I entered a comp for a similar greenhouse a while back, but this does seem to be a new competition - I've entered it just now

Brenda - will this one do ?

Yes Forget me nots   We get them all over the garden at this time of year. When the flowers finish I just pull them up - they'll have scattered some seeds and there'll be more next year.  They provide lovely colour in the spring.

When I pull them up I put them in the compost heap which means that wherever I spread the compost mulch in the autumn will have forget-me-nots the following year - I don't worry about that - they're easily hoed out of the veg patch, and they're a lovely filler in the rest of the garden.

I'm so often nearly seduced by a corylopsis Obelixx, but then I remember that it won't like our chalky soil

I found that nematodes were really effective against vine weevils on my shrubby border - two applications three years ago and no problems in that area since.
