When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

26 Jul 2019 • I’m always late to the #tagparty but here’s my contribution to the #hosta tag. I have no idea what variety it is. My now long dead neighbour gave me a small piece when we first moved in...

I’ve even got some weeds growing 😂 One of the benefits of the drought has been that nothing was growing not even the weeds 😉 @pauline33

😂😂your so right a couple of weeks ago there was dandelion seeds blowing everywhere from the fields behind us and it seems like they’ve instantly grown into full grown plants 🙄

I can’t decide between dandelions and creeping buttercup as to which is my least favourite weed 🤔😡😂 @pauline33

Thanks. I wonder what has made the difference 🤔 I don’t think I’ve decided be anything different. A late but warm, dry spring? @rachelbrooks

Maybe Jacq 🤷🏻‍♀️ I wondered if maybe as they get older they become a bit more resilient..? 🤔

🤔 Could be that too though this one is already pretty old. It’s the first hosta I ever planted, maybe 20 years ago 🤔 @rachelbrooks

How many of our plants are unnamed varieties passed on from friends and neighbours? In my case? 🤔 Half the garden 😊💚 #hosta #white

I have a little area where I put plants I've potted up from divisions & self-seeding & then wait to hijack any unsuspecting visitor who leaves their car boot open 😉😂 @columbiariver @rachelbrooks
