Hi , I bought this my first ever Hosta on Saturday from a charity sale. I would be chuffed if anyone could identify the variety for me . I've had a look online but couldn't be certain, it looked a little like one called Francee. Thankyou.

Too many plants

I too am running out of room in my garden for new or seed raised plants, and all the extra plants l have from divided perennials. I have lots of borage, foxgloves, hemerocallus 'Pink Damask', six 2L pots of hardy geranium 'Mavis Simpson', all from one clump earlier in spring, cosmos 'Purity', hardy geranium 'Biocovo'?, astrantias and a couple of white agapanthus . There is a large annual plant sale next Saturday near (ish) to me in aid of Hospicare Southwest so I'm going to donate all my spares to them. I know I'll probably buy something unusual or much desired myself, I just can't resist. I just enjoy growing stuff , I find it so relaxing being outside getting mucky . I know so few keen gardeners, who garden like I do . Most work colleagues only have a lawn they hate mowing and a pot or two with a mini conifer in it and find gardening to much effort. So it's great to come on this forum and read /see all of your achievements.

Thanks aym for the compliment on photos but just pointed kindle and crossed fingers. Lovely pics aym, I've got the same white cistus as you, just starting to flower now. I have to take the hedge cutter to it straight after it finishes flowering else it gets too wide . Luckily it always recovers even if l cut into old wood. Really like your lilac cistus, but alas no more space . All my peonies are only just getting their plump round buds including my new Bowl of Beauty can't wait to meet its flowers for the first time.
