Hi all.

Groundhog day, rain and fog.

No excuse for not studying.

Have a good one.

All seems a bit unfair to men of a certain persuasion.

First we have Poldark and now Tom Hardy, where is my treat?

Hi all.

A couple of hours general tidying up and weeding, it was not raining, but the fog has soaked me.

Feel much better for being outside.

Now need to settle down, ignore distractions, and study.

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.
