Great isn't it Hosta, it went up by over 1000 whilst I was watching it.

Hi all

Foggy yet again, but I need to start doing stuff, so I will be cutting back some perennials today.

LP. I find that for many plants, it is not the cold that kills them, but a combination of rain and wind. I usually keep Gingers, tender Fuschias  etc. going, although this year the green house is rather more ventilated than I would like.

Going to see if I can sit still for 2 hours this afternoon to try and do a tutorial in one go.

Have a good one everybody.

Cultivar. A plant that differs in some way from the species, but not enough to be a separate species.

               Tends to be used to refer to cultivated variety, ie bred by man, but can occur in the wild.

Hybrid. A cross between 2 different species.

Variety. A rank in the classification system, beneath species

             Genus - Species - Variety - sub species.

Not sure whether I have explained that well.

Hi all.

Miserable day again, so I have been studying. Finding it hard, as it is so long since I last did it. Keep wandering off, or playing games, need to learn how to concentrate again.

Has anyone eaten Hosta leaves before?

I am still struggling to see why.

What is wrong with Cabbage, Lettuce etc., etc..

As for variety, I would choose G. nivalis, it is the commonest and it multiplies well.

Great win GWRS, slightly better than our streaky 4-3, with the last kick of the game.

Sadly don't go that often now.

they look too small for mole hills, sadly I have lots at the moment, so plenty to compare with!

top dressing, MO Bacter and the moss farm...

You need to remove the moss before you do anything else.

Major excitement! My Winter Aconites are flowering.

Always flower before the Snowdrops in this garden, and I regard their flowering as the first signs of life in the garden.
