After months of planning and digging up wild garlic and celadine (in a different area), I have finally got a hosta.  I planted 8 last Saturday and already 6 have shot through.  I'm so excited.  Finally, my hosta corner is taking shape.  This is a photo of the biggest one. 

It's very nice to be able to report some exciting progress instead of being bogged down with some weed or other image

    Good to see the belt and braces way of slug killing. You dont want to lose it now.

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    Its great to have people to share your excitement with isn't it, congratulations !

    Indeed it is Peanuts3.  My OH doesn't understand why I'm leaping around in excitement - he even asked what a hosta is!  Bless - he'll soon have lots to look at.

    Charley, my OH still doesn't get my excitement and I've got 300 and about 80 - 90 different varieties. ( one day I'll count them )

    image - Hostafan1 your garden must look fantastic!  Do you have loads of other plants too or do you specialise in Hostas?

    Good to see the copper ring around it because your slugs are equally excited to see it. I visited a garden in Frimley Green a few years ago that had a lovely collect of hosta's in pots under a tree. It looked fabulous and is stored in my head as a project for some point in the future.
