An unexpected afternoon off Always the best kind. Kizzy is very pretty, she looks like some sort of poodle/lab cross.

Hosta- don't let them get you down.

You could cut the taller stems off the big one. It won't do any harm and it will look bushier. If you pick out the tips of new leaves more often than not the plant will grow in both directions so you can encourage it to bush up in places.

The off cuts could be used for cuttings. I'd be tempted to leave the small one as it is and repot when it starts growing again in Spring

It's a succulent of some sort. I used to have one. Maybe something like zebra?

I love Bowles Mauve too. I trim mine throughout the year, I just take off the tall flower spikes when they've finished. This seems to help to prevent it from getting too woody. I only have a couple of flowers on mine,so am leaving them be for now.

Think they were the first plants I had a go at taking cuttings from, so easy
