I was a relatively late comer to driving. The last time I parallel parked was on my test I often let people out and thank those that do the same for me. My biggest bug bear is when people drive too close behind you.

Wild hosta

I don't think they are hostas. Your description sounds similar to something that is growing just outside the garden. The leaves almost go into a point?

Can you take a pic?

I just pulled it apart, it divided really easily into 3 pieces and just popped them  in the ground. Only one had a go at flowering last year but should get flowers off all three this.

I find them hardy here, if it looks like it's got new growth coming through I would cut off the dead leaves to allow light to get in.

I got a small one last year and split it into three

I sowed a whole packet of snapdragon seeds in to 2 small trays last year and  I had 100s of them  I swear it looked like  every single one had germainated.

Not had a go and collecting seeds, do you just leave the seed pods dry on the stems......a bit like foxgloves?

Some of last years plants are still alive here as well Bob. Also the annual scabioius sown last year

They are lovely plants, one of mine was a root from Wilkinsons. The cuttings I've taken are doing well.
