I live in Macclesfield, Cheshire and the winters here tend to vary year on year. I have to say that so far I have never lost any plants apart from a Mimosa young tree (acacia dealbata) which i made the mistake of leaving out in winter. Then again as they say, never say never.
I have to explain that my hostas will be planted in good size terracota pots in the front garden. The front garden is quite sheltered from winds especially on south and east sides and in summer enjoys the afternoon sun from 2-3pm onwards.
Verdun, are there any online sellers of hostas that you would recommend please (perhaps via PM if the forum rules dont allow posting them here)?
