Hi thank you again for your reply, I do try and grow many things in pots, not as much as you, but if I cant find space in my garden, and I am running out, I just pot it. I always say I wont buy anything else, but cant help myself. I NEVER can go to a garden centre without buying something!!
I call myself an amateur-amateur gardener, but am always willing to learn and enjoy just pottering about.
I am very lucky as my sister is a really good gardener and she comes round every so often and checks things out with advice and a pair of secauteurs, she is lethal, but it works!
My friend is going to divide her hostas, early spring I imagine and I am to get a cutting. We shall see then how mine grows compared to hers.
A question though, even with tape something eats my hostas, is it slugs. My sis says they will go to any lengths for food, even to climbing onto something above a hosta and dropping down. Is this true and is there anything else I can do for them.
Just off to Blenheim now to see the Olympic torch later today. I do thank you very much for your time.l I dont normally have time in the day but have two weeks leave, I get out in the garden between showers but it is all getting a bit soggy now!
Many thanks. Julieh2
