Thank you everyone, much good advice, especially from Hostafan on how to split.  I will take more care in future !

I have forgotten when to split Hostas in pots, although I have many growing in the garden. 

In the past I have got out the pruning saw, early April and carved into sections, some did well, others not ! 

The potted ones look quite tight now  - so any advice as to whether to split into 2/3 for future pot growing would be welcomed

Got this in an email from a friend living near Kings Lynn. Afraid I don't have a clue, she accepts it may well be a weed - any ideas please ?

Good, thanks, have tried 'Marshmellow's' way which works well, will certainly give your links a try soon, am not on here every day tho', wonder if it will ever get fixed

Thank you everyone for your most informative replies - the reason I have not responded before is that I have not been able to accesss my posts, have now tried a very roundabout method suggestes by 'Marshmallow' which seems to work

Ah, thought it was just me, no posts but a notification with a squashed tomato to say the technical team are on the case.......for a long time seemingly, anyone I can contact about this ?  But if I can't access my posts, what to do ?

Hello, I wonder if anyone knows the best way to get the  maximum flowers from these in a northern climate.  I have successfully overwintered one in a cold greenhouse, but was surprised to see on repotting on autumn, that the plant did not have conventional tubers, but more like fleshy roots

I have ordered some more from J.Parkers which are only about 15cm at the moment so am wondering whether to keep in pots or plant out.  The existing one flowered for over 5 months last year so am hoping for the same - any advice gratefully received !

do you do a "Chelsea chop ? if so what plants !

Always chop the sedums which seems to work well. Think I read somewhere it can be done to Heleniums, it would be good to reduce their height a bit, does anyone know if this can be done say in a couple of weeks when they are a bit bigger ?
