You can prune hard, in late Winter. Most people grow it for the foliage, rather than the flowers.

Plenty of great modern art: Lucian Freud and David Hockney for starters.

It is a Physocarpus, possibly Diablo.

You are of course right, Hosta.

Love cooking, hate amateurs on cooking shows, actually don't really get cooking shows at all. I can't taste it, so what is the point?

Agree re golf, as Oscar Wilde said: "a good walk spoilt"

I know this will upset most of you, but I had a massive amount of respect for Blair. Yes he made a terrible mistake, but of the last many generations of politicians, he was the only one, that significantly decreased the number of children in poverty. There I have said it, late the hatred commence.

Sorry, I don't get Opera, but love many types of "modern" and old pop music.

Don't get Bake Off, or Strictly Come Dancing.

Gerbera seeds

I think Gerbera seeds are quite complicated to grow.

Try looking on the RHS site, they will have information.

Bloody Banks. Just drove into town, to pay a cheque in, branch closed down. Thought no problem, drove another 6 miles, Bank has Thursday closing.

What is this

Yes, I think so to Hosta. Mine don't seem to survive winter, so I sow a fresh batch each year.

Depends how big each plant is. IF small, I would group them, suitably spaced, so they grow to become a good clump.
