Thanks so much Jason…I’m just wondered if I will need to repot it next year…any thoughts? 🤔 @hebelover

To be honest I'm a terrible judge, I constantly pot stuff up, convinced the pots are too small, then I see pictures of everyone else's stuff flourishing in way smaller ones!! Barbara would be the best to ask @jacaranda

Lol…I’m the same Jason! I’m a bit concerned with some of my plants there aren’t any bigger pots out there!!! 😅🤣 @hebelover

I would repot in the spring, Angela, as it looks as though it wants to grow bigger and bigger! I can never get the pot size right either, Jason, so you’re not alone! @hebelover 😂😂

Thank you so much Barbara…I shall do that. Happy to help it reach its enthusiastic full potential ! 🪴 @jacaranda

Could I ask please Barbara…should the new pot be wider and/or deeper, or both?

Probably a bit of both, Angela. It looks like a really good grower so it will benefit from the extra depth and width. 👍😘

Thank you 😊 I have to admit to being somewhat surprised. Previously it’s only produced one flower and much later in the year, so this is a very welcome surprise @ShelleySnyder @hebelover @jacaranda @anges @novicegardenlover @lesliecole49

I only have a few hostas, unfortunately I don’t have any idea of the variety of this one….any ideas please? 🤔 #hosta #hostachallenge-2022 #hostachallenge2022 #hosta-undulata #hosta-undulata-albomarginata #ajmay

There are quite a few in the encyclopaedia that resemble yours, Angela, so it would be worth taking a look to see if you can spot one that’s identical. 🤞 It’s lovely one, even though it hasn’t got a name 💚

Angela, I follow the Hosta Society on Facebook and I’ve just seen a photo of a Hosta that’s very similar to yours. It’s listed as Undulata Albomarginata. Worth checking out on Google? 🤔🤞😘

Everyone's hostas are way ahead of mine. I think I'm going to impose a ban on them until mine decide to get a wiggle on 😂😂😂

Lol ! 😆 I have another that isn’t doing nearly as well and it’s sited right next to this one Jane. I think they’re a bit like people…some like a lie in and a slow start, whilst others are up and out with the lark! You never know, the late starters may outshine the early birds 🤞 @pelly
