Went round an NGS garden this afternoon and saw these wonderful HUGE hostas!
they were on the edge of a natural stream.Some of the leaves were a foot across.

    yummity yum yum. 
    Shall I photograph some of mine tomorrow? or is everyone bored with them? :'(

    Nope.. show us your hostas please!  I love them, but struggle with them in this climate. Doesn't stop me from buying them from the GC on clearance occasionally.. but it does feel rather inhumane watching them struggle for a season or two before going socks up.

    Chrissy, they are flowering already, wow! 
    Few of mine. Taken on iPad, I have cropped them a bit so hope they come through ok.
