I grow all my hosts in pots. They are in groups on my terrace in shade for most of the day. Different shapes and heights. very attractive, and not much of a problem from slugs now. Watering easy too, and feeding.
`Good luck with Shadow, DD.
Must sort my plants for the plant sale tomorrow, won't comment on the weather in case I put the mockers on it. Also repot my dahlias which I grow in pots.
Planted some violas by the front door, and some blue perennial cornflowers.
Fell asleep in garden and woke up at 5-30. rushed indoors to find it was only 4-30 !!
Sun promised for later Must get plants ready for the sale on Saturday. And some ironing first while waiting for sun to arrive.
Don't know this one, but the general rule is that those with thin strappy leaves are the hardiest. e.g. Garnett. Thick leaves are often tender types.
Tea is acidic. Would too much harm lime lovers?
I haven't room for lots of pots. so grow them in pots if you get my drift?
Here too in hampshire yesterday. Saw 2 so must be summer.
My water butt is almost empty too. we have our village plant sale on Saturday so I expect it to rain then.
