Hello forkers

very light this morning at 6 30 as I took Spike to the beach.  Wonderful.  So peaceful, still, a bright sliver of moon, couple of stars, clear sky and light mists rising.  Feeling warm.......   Right now it's looking like a very warm day.

Jo, don't plant those plants.  They are highly invasive. 



Send them to me and I will safely dispose of them for you.

I prune every year. I grow for foliage not the flowers so I get the best possible foliage colour this way.  I also pinch back new growth 2 or 3 times during the summer.  This helps produce dense, non leggy foliage with better colour

Hosta, I would definitely take penstemon cuttings now.  A little late but will be fine.
