Best time to buy hostas and other plants?

Morning Anthony

June is one on my own shopping this one a lot 

There are some real experts here...hope Hostafan is better opinion than mine should come.  However Blue Hawaiii too is one I have considered.......for leaf colour and size.  not familiar with the others.

Lily, you are absolutely spot on.  

That lion pic reminds me of when I was a teenager and stopped my car in the lion enclosure at Longleat and got out to take a photo.  The last pic was of it running towards me was fun at the time but now shudder at the stupidity of doing that.  I may post it here if I can retrieve it.

Morning everyone

Lovely start .....that big yellow thing in the sky is here too 

Always wary of those offers.......usually a mass of tiny roots or plugs, plants not really wanted and plants not likely to do anything for 12 months or longer.  Far better to buy exactly what you want.  Not too many of those plants exist in my garden today.  

Should be a second day of drying out for many of us so that's good news 

Will do some pricking out and potting up today and cut back some grasses that have been displaying great structure over the winter.

I have one uncinia in front of a white hellebore....looks good I think.   It is though more impressive in winter and early spring but loses out a bit in summer to brighter things

I guess I remember it cos it trips off the tongue so nicely.  And it makes me sound clever

Yep, noisy here.  Those winds were the strongest for a very lomg time.  No personal damage last night 

Zoomer, shame about your neighbour from hell.  Don't let this guy intimidate you.  Hate bullies.  Always found when confronted they become cowards.  (boxing skills from childhood have helped me with this attitude tho .  Always believed the bigger they are the harder they fall).

First Spring Flowers

MrsG, makes ??ou feel good doesn't it to see those flowers?  

Despite all the rain my soil is reasonably workable and it was so tempting to do more out there today.  Such a strong feeling of spring.
