It is like Frank says, if you like it watch it, if you don't, then don't.

I think Monty is wonderful, he has a beautiful use of language, and says things that are worth listening to.

He has always appreciated the benefits of gardening to the "soul", and was one of the first people, to highlight the benefits to mental health.

My OH loves the dogs, but has no interest in the gardening, as she says, she has someone to do the garden for her. Anyway we are both happy.

I would like more Adam Frost as well, a garden designer I have always admired.

As fidget says, you can take cuttings from the first shoots that emerge in Spring, but not from mature plants, as the stems become hollow.

Going to be argumentative, for the sake of it, and I may be wrong, but I don't think there is a Molinia KF, but there is certainly a Calamagrostis KF.

Sorry if I am wrong, and have falsely dissed you Hosta.
