If they're H. orientalis hybrids (most likely) the flowers come before the new leaves.
How big/old are they?
Yes. there was a post on this subject a few days ago. I'll see if I can find it. I was leaving some of the top on the protect the base through winter but maybe not the best way
Cut them back
But I have considered pinning down those new growths up the stems top see if they'll root.
Is the going rate £1 per thread or £1 per posting Hosta?
11.30 OK with me.
I have Cambridgeshire NGS booklets hot(ish) from the press.
Geranium nodosum for Topbird
A ghastly plastic looking flower for Maggie
anything else for anyone else?
No, I can't find any others
but that's the one I need most often
I'd prefer morning, afternoons are rather short and we'll need café time as well as snowdrop time
Note accent on café, Hosta told me where to find that
Sounds OK to me Dove.
You're unlikely to fine the plain elder species in a garden centre Nick, It's not the sort of thing they keep. Hedging or native plant seller is what you want. I haven't tried elder from cuttings but they seed everywhere.
Once you get things established they seed around, especially if you don't keep weeding, hoeing and tidying up. No danger of that here
