Hostas - they're so ............. fussy!

Posted: 20/05/2015 at 20:01

My variegated and plain are all growing well in the border facing north west.and have been for years.

I have two others in full sun, all day, all equally happy, no need to fuss them.

Glyphosate based weed killers (i.e. Roundup et al)

Perhaps we can put the weed killer on the shelf with underarm deodorants, clingfilm, fairy liquid, talcome powder, burnt toast, toothpaste, and a thousand and one other house hold products until they have proof.

9cm plant - how to deal with it

The little one could fare better, as Dove says, they are only barely just coming out now, so the big one has obviously been 'dragged up'  in a hot house to get it like that, may not stand the cold nights.

Dove, all my Achilleas are 2ft tall, whats happened to yours?

I have been to daughters in Cornwall today, freezing cold, all we did was visit the two GC's. Far too cold to walk round gardens!

We had four little girls with, two and a half year olds, littles dears, they love a mooch round the GC smelling all the flowers, they loved the verbena and lavender.

We picked up another 6 from school, so 10 little kids altogether, you wouldnt have thought there was a child in the house.

anyone have one of these?

Wow! Thank you folks, I was beginning to wonder, its taken off like a weed, no sign of flowers yet but I will keep you posted, 

I love geraniums, and thank to Bekkie ( I think it was) I now have a complete border of them, the blue and purple ones are flowering now.

Can anyone remember send me a root of Rozanne or similar, I lost all my old PM'S and cant remember who sent what.


I do have a gorgeous Geum about to flower and I know Victoria Sponge sent that to me, so thank you everyone.

My daughter bought this for me last summer, it was labelled Geranium, it stayed green all winter and is now 3ft tall and 4ft wide, not a plant for the front of the border!

Does anyone know what it is, and is it really a geranium please.



Camellia problem

They do that, its the wet cold weather, especially the white ones. I am in the mind to get rid of mine that are in an exposed part of the garden. We have already taken a huge white one out.

 Wherever you store your photo's, they never work on here, had them before.

I cant see them in that photo, are they cream with brown faces about half inch long.

Its not the right time to dig them up really.

If all else fails you can buy a normal Delta Sarah,Morrison sold them last year, then look out for a 3 leafed cutting and do your own, it very easy.
