Dont you just love a nice fresh #hosta 18/4/2019 #green
Perfect, Dave! Just make sure the pesky 🐌🐌🐌 don’t make a meal of the nice fresh leaves 🤣 @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co
@jacaranda im usually ok for the first month Barbara, then i start to let it slip 🙄
I need some Hostas next year, this ha just gone on my wish list, beautiful 💜💜
@pelly you can have that one jane. Thats with free delivery and mixture of two dozen slugs and snails chucked in as well 😉
Flowering well .
Blimey Dave @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co what are you feeding them a 3 course dinner Im lucky to have 2 flower stems on mine 😍👌
Plenty of flowers coming on the #hosta
Never thought I'd be spending 15 mins before going to bed checking for slugs / snails !!!!
Wow looks stunning 👌📸👌
Looks fabulous have you tried nemaslug works a treat 👌🏻
@nessa never heard of that vanessa, I'll have a look.
Looks great, simple and effective #hosta
I use nemaslug as well, otherwise I'll end up like my mum and be out in the garden for an hour every night with a head torch and a bucket of salt!
@LadySmiff 😂 I think I'd get on well with your mum wendy . 😂
Hosta's still snail and slug free. The moats seem to be doing the trick.
Have used copper tape I'm hoping that will work 👌🏻
@nessa i use it on all my pots but caught a snail sat on top of it the other night, so not sure if it's that effective.
Gosh, your hosta is much more forward than mine, looks stunning. late night snail patrol is the only thing that works here! 🐌
Wow great idea!... but isn't that too much moisture for the hosta to sit in? It looks amazing...
...I have the same hosta... bought it had completely died because it went mouldy and all the leaves went but then this Spring, even though I'd planted something new in its pot I was astounded to find it had re-grown!
@belindah I've sat it up so it's slightly clear of the water. When the summer comes I'll try it in the water , see how it goes.
@belindah I got the idea off Geoff @driftwood couple of weeks ago. Great tip.
Think i will have to try this trick also Dave @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co i have copper tape round pots & haven't seen any 🐌 but I'm sure they are just waiting hiding somewhere 😂
I gave this one to my son a couple of years ago. He's just sent me this pic of it. Must have got them from good stock 😂
A chip off the old block Dave 😊😊😊
It would be great if he got an interest in gardening. We already work on the same building sites together. He does the inside work whilst his poor old dad is still on the roofs.
Growing like mad at the moment 😊
Looking good 👍🏻
Wow what you feeding them 💚💚💚
Fabulous! Let's pray all the slugs are on holiday! 😂😂
I think it's fair to say I'm the worst tulip grower on g/tags , but my hostas are doing well 🤗
Wow they are giants compared to my ones ... they are just peeping through Dave
@helenhourston they've all ways done well early in the year. Must be doing something right .
Hosta's all doing well.🤗
Wow Dave @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co your Hosta's are Fabulous hope mine turn out like yours 👌😍
@jadojado29 thanks Suzie I seem to be able to get them right as long as the snails and slugs leave alone 😡
I see Dave @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co you use copper tape so do i. I did find last year it was the best for me at keeping slugs away do hopefully yours will also 🐌
@jadojado29 I've took a tip from Geoff @driftwood and put most of them on saucers full of water to form a moat. Got to be worth a try Suzie 😄
Some one else told me to stay WD 40 around the pot as well
Will have to try them both @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co & @driftwood thanks for the advice 👍
Nice and healthy looking. Until the snails find it 🐌🔫
Watch out for 🐌🐌🐌🐌
A good weeks growth on the #hosta .
Hope you have them guarded from the slugs Dave, they can eat a whole one in one sitting 😁
I'm pretty good at slugging jayne. @jaynehynesburton. Got a catapult for the snails. They end up across the road 😂
😂😂😂🐌🏹nearest I could get to a catapult 😂. @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co
#hosta #newgrowth. Only ever bought one hosta about 17 years ago whilst on holiday in great Yarmouth. These are all off it 😊
Think this hosta has its seasons mixed up !!!
This is possibly the best show of flowers I think I've had off this hosta.
Beautiful , all the rain has helped 💜💜💜💜💜💜
A week away and it's in full bloom 😊
Wow that's a huge amount of flowers 👍
Any time now . Don't think it's ever had so many flowers on it.😁
@davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co amazing specimen. Looks wonderful. 😊🙏🏼
@pixierose thank you. I've only ever bought one hosta, 12 years ago whilst on holiday in great Yarmouth, just keep dividing them . I've got loads now.
First flowers on the hosta about to break out 😊
Wow my hosta is only 25cm out the ground
Love the stone and moss surround for a winter visual too 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
