Help with Hostas' location

Good luck with your collection greenlove. My top tip for slug control is to feed the blackbirds and thrushes,( and dissuade the cat) by sprinkling " suet" bird treats around.The birds will then forage and find the slug/ snails as they go.

I have around 300 hostas of around 80 varieties ( one day I'll properly count them ) but I'm always looking for more.

we had a delightful amount of nice steady rain for most of yesterday ( Norht Devon) which has done the garden the power of good. I swear I could actually see the hostas bigger every time I looked from the window.
