Here you go .... some photos of my Hosta Corner.  I've taken a distance photo too, so you can get a feel for where all my hostas are growing.  My favourites at the moment are the Dinner Jacket and the White Feather.  The White Feather is very interesting - it grows as green and then the leaves gradually turn a startling white.  Please excuse the black patches on the lawn; I'm reseeding some areas and also treating it for weed etc.

    Thanks Anthony.  I am really grateful for our garden which goes all the way round our house, with a big lawn at the back so I've enjoyed designing and putting into action the various sections.  Some failures and some successes but that's the name of the gardening game.  I've had loads of encouragement from this forum, which is unbelievably helpful and friendly. 

    Have you decided what you're going to do to help your hostas?  Are you eyes ok now?  I wonder where Hostafan is, hope he's ok.

  • Hello Charley. sorry that I have not been around for a while but have had loads of doctor appointments. Thankyou for asking about my eyes I can report that my vision has gone from 29% to almost 99%. it is really changed my life as I can see the vanes on my hostas and see the flowers in real detail for the first time in years imageimageimageimageimage. I got my blue hawian hosta changed by bowdans and will post a pic as soone as my new note3 is returned to me it is a nice large replacement . its in a pot until next spring. my old one I tried a exercise with it and chopped all but one damaged leave off and after only two weeks it has sent up three brand new shoots imageimageimage

    I don't have it Verdun. It looks FAB. Does it hold that colour all season or does it fade to green?

    I moved all my potted hostas into the cool tunnel so I could split them but " the knee" has set that one back a season.

    I think I'm going to get them all planted in the tunnel and give them a year to bulk up then get stuck in next year.

    I'm re-arranging some beds this year which were planted when we moved here three years ago. I just had to get stuff  " in the ground" back then, so some re-jigging is called for now.

    I previously had a large garden, space no object! I love hostas in all their forms, and a plant fair at Burton Agnes Hall had wonderful plants from a specialist nursery. Now I have a tiny, and yes I do mean tiny garden.15ft x20ft. I was looking last night at hosta Ice and Fire (it faces south and we have a damp north border,) I can get 3 cheaply from Parkers but their reviews are less than encouraging. (sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread)

    I love the one on the right in your first photo.

  • Did anyone of you watch GW and see that wonderful hosta garden image love the idea of scented flowers ,we purchased a small collection of 5 and have them potted and labelled but am sure none of them stated perfumed flowers. We have about 15 of our old plants but only two varieties green or variegated (we have been splitting each year)  is fire and ice the white one or perhaps the blue leaf one? possibly give those a try next seasonimage
