Sounds perfect for hostas adamadamant. 

Right now their new growing leaves are so bright and lush.  wonderful varieties available now.  A show for the whole summer 

cutting down greens of daffs / tulips

Posted: 11/05/2016 at 08:15

Tulip foliage seems to die down more quickly than that of daffs.  Forget counting weeks soon as the foliage starts to yellow you can safely remove it.

tulips will often be lost...always the best ones .......over the year so lifting them and storing them is the way to go as far as I'm concerned.  

The green of spring

what a lovely time of year this is for GREEN.  All shades of green...fresh foliage suddenly swamping trees, shrubs and perennials.

a walk to the beach earlier this morning in the mist helped me appreciate the beauty of nature even without flowers. Relaxing and awe inspiring.

hope everyone has a chance to enjoy the great outdoors today too

B3, banter,,provocative ...but inoffensive personally....stuff doesn't go down well here, does it? 

as with texting it is difficult to convey views on the forum as they were meant.  The EU is topical right now and we should exchange views about it.  opinions, strong opinions, don't hurt anyone but they are often misinterpreted.

I am happy to join in vigorous debate so let's see what happens.  Got slaughtered last time
