Oh BL - that's such a beautiful pic of the coos in the mist  

My spider outside the front window is clinging on valiantly to his web. Hope he doesn't get blown away tonight...

I think that's what copperdog was intending Lantana. Trouble is - they'll end up rooting into the hostas, and that's best case scenario. There's also a good chance the hostas will rot with the heathers beinon top of them . Better in a display on their own  

You ain't convincing me either Verd....

Hi Angi - have you clicked on the camera icon in the top right hand corner? Pix can't be too big or they won't load, so you may have to resize

Mine look worse than that too.

I think they do tend to look worse than a lot of other plants that are dying back though.

I like heather on the hills Hosta - good to walk on when the grouse etc have nibbled it down - nice and springy!  

I'm not keen on them in the garden either

If you don't have another pot, you can pick up terracota ones quite cheaply almost anywhere. You could then pop your heathers into that for a winter display, and just tuck your hostas out the way for winter. It's all a learning curve, copperdog, so always worth asking the question. 

 A selection of pots for different times of year is always useful. I have some which I just move in and out of certain areas, depending on time of year and the effect I want

Waterproofs would be more useful today.... 

I think I still have one nice dress - a nice Phase 8 one I bought for someone's wedding eight years ago. Got rid of everything else when I moved from that last house. 

I have trousers but I don't go anywhere smart enough now that I can't wear jeans. I'd better hope other nephew or niece don't decide to get married
