Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

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

#hostatips I always top dress my pots with a layer of gravel or small stones in an effort to keep the #slugsandsnails away. #hosta #hosta-june #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 .

I used nematodes in spring last year, Joan, but I think this one became infected much later in the year 🙁 Do you treat your pots just once or regularly throughout the summer? @joanboston 🤔

I’ve read that the vine weevil will go for plants that are under stress. I wonder how they know which ones are stressed 🤔 @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co @lovemygarden65 @hayleyaj

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
