Good idea to plant snowdrops round hostas B-L. I must do that, it will mark where the hostas are before I tread on the shoots.

I love 'Hoopoe' Marion, I'll put it on my list for next season.

Gardening granny, watch that Euphorbia. It's the only one that's ever injured me. I cut it back on a hot day and the sap must have come off in a fine spray, not noticed by me. After about an hour my face went numb. I washed it but must have screwed my eyes up because over the next few days the skin came off my eyelids. Very sore


Question about blueberries

I don't know anything about blueberries Jim, but to cross pollinate plants need to flower at the same time.

Plant sometimes commonly called Bumble Bee plant/Bee plant/shrub?

Buddleia is obviously right whatever the official line is now.

I don't think school latin helps much. Plant names are based on a mixture of languages and none of it bears any relation to what I learnt at school. Not that I learnt much. I failed my first latin exam and went downhill from there

Even those that set themselves up as experts vary in their pronunciation of the names so I think we can do as we like

I wouldn't worry Lily. If someone behaves reasonably, treat them reasonably. If they don't, ignore them.

They are perennials and not that far off hardy. At a previous garden we had a crumbly wall and they became almost shrubby in that after a few years
