They are looking good Barbara. Your wonderful hosta collection has pushed me to invest in a few more myself…just ordered 2 x blue mouse ears for pots either side of our small shaded patio and an Elegans for our larger patio. The shaded area by the table on the latter is pretty full already but as with anything, sure I’ll be able to squeeze it in, even if we have to lose a chair 😂
This one is faring quite well as it’s in the shade at the front of the house but the main collection in the Hosta theatre aren’t happy as it’s too hot!!! I’m sure your new ones will look lovely and I’m delighted to have inspired you to get a few more. I know you won’t regret it!!! 😘😘 @italydiva
Day 9 of the #hostachallenge2022 and it’s time to feature a #hosta that isn’t part of the Hosta Theatre. ‘June’ sits on the gravel bed next to the front door where she can be seen by everyone. She’s now reached 70cm across so she’ll probably need dividing next spring! #hosta-june 💚
Day 6 of the #hostachallenge2021 and here’s ‘June’. I had two identical pots but one wasn’t doing too well so I split it. Now I’ve got one big one and half a dozen in various sizes. #hosta #hosta-june #hostachallenge #containergarden
I’ve always had two pots of ‘June’ at the front of the house but last year one was fabulous (bottom left) and one was looking very sad. Yesterday I decided to repot both. The fabulous one is now in a new pot (bottom right) but in the sad one I found signs of vine weevils and half the plant was missing! After washing the soil off and disposing of all the nasties I split what was left and now have five new plants (top photo). Candidates for next year’s #hostachallenge perhaps 🤔🤞🤣💚
@jacaranda ...... This looks like a good collection Barbara ...... like you, I found some Vine Weevil last week in one of my pots ...... I pinched them all out (hopefully) and the little Robin had a good feast .
Day 1 of the #hostachallenge with @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co and @lesliecole49 💚💚 June never fails to put on a great show but she might need a bigger pot next year! #containergarden #jacarandahostas
I saw one of Dave’s Hosta posts, Mike, and thought it would be fun for us to post a Hosta a day as a challenge. Lockdown is getting tedious and I needed some excitement in my life again!!! From what I’ve already seen I think @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co might have this one in the bag 🤣🤣 @oldgreyheron
