Sorry Hosta, I am an idiot.

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.

Agree with Ladybird, except 2. , which is a Caryopteris.

What next: frogs, bees, birds, may I suggest the best solution might be to concrete over your lawn.

Has anyone used Thomson and Morgan for shrubs? Would you recommend?

Lovely morning dividing and replanting.

I love the idea of getting plants for free, but also find some of my plant positioning is a bit more imaginative with divisions, probably because they are freebies, so I am less concerned about their future health.

Bad luck on the car fg, and you with the tele DD.

Now going to lie on the sofa, and watch the first part of "The Night Of ", a new series, which has had very good reviews.

Hi all.

Very muggy here.

Just made a big discovery, I can see the computer screen much better, if I wear my glasses!

Plan today, is to move a few plants, to places where they may look better. However long I garden I still struggle to throw out plants which I don't think earn their keep. I prefer to keep moving their location, hoping to eventually find the perfect location.

Must be more ruthless.

Apple and Blackberry crumble for breakfast!

Have a good day.

The pictures + as nut says, the ease of removal of plant, roots and all, really does NOT suggest JKW.
