Xhose - Expandable hose - any good?

Not comvinced by these expandable hoses.
I think they do separate from taps too easily and can damage plants caught up in
Kinks in my hose drive me mad though when suddenly water supply stops because of them.
I think hose reel is a..........reelly ?.....good solution ....I'll get my coat

Verbena and Russian Sage

Hello dan
The Russian sage. Perovskia? Blue flowers? It is slow in showing. Don't worry about it but is your ground very heavy?
The it the tall bonariensis? This can be tender but if it still has green leaves it sounds fine to me
It's such a late season though this year....many plants are. much later than last year.
Patience...just little while longer

Matty, that family link thing is lovely. I try to do some sentiment ....putting in plants that remind me by name, or because I know they were a favourite or for other reasons
That's why our personal gardens are so important.

Where have all the hostas gone?

Hiya budlia63
Never really had a freeze down here.
That copper planter sounds perfect.
The garlic spray may be worth trying although I seem to grow hostas pretty well slug far
