    Nine if mine have flowered Lily, but they are young (bought as bare root plants this year) and I didn't now there were meant to. Do all Hostas flower or only some varieties?

    I don't think they all flower? I use to have a lot of them, god knows where they have all gone! At the time I liked them I use to cut the flowers off! How bad is that lol,

    My best friends grandaughter recently turned one and her name is Olivia Rose the same as the new David Austin Rose. 

    This year I bought an Ixia called Mabel the name of my 1 year old grandaughter but I have yet to find any plant called Meredith the name of my eldest grandaughter, I'd settle for Merri or Mimi as those are her nick names but no joy.  Unless anyone knows better.
