I’m so pleased it’s doing well Jane after the decimation of it a couple of years ago! @pelly

Guess it must be me duck. But I took this out of the border a couple of years ago and it seems to love the pot! Fingers crossed it stays that way! 😬🤞🏼 @juliesgarden

That’s what I did with this Sarah. It was being destroyed as soon as it grew when it was in the border 😢 it’s much happier in the pot 👍🏼 @sieveheadsarah

Mine are in pots Rachel and all 3 are humongous. I've never had a problem with slugs either 👌☺🌿

A little #outofseason but my Hostas always seem to flower as the foliage is dying back and way behind everyone else's 🤔 also, why does the top left pic remind me of Kermit the frog..? 🐸

I think that's the best time as mine get earlier each year and the leaves never look the same afterwards. I cut all the leaves back a couple of weeks ago as they were so yellow 😔

🙊 it's the shady, damp corner Sue and the slimers abound there! 😁😁 and I'm pleased with it - a bit different to how it looked last year! 👍🏼💚 @susanhumphrey333
