Recently went and picked up shipment of Hostas from the other side of the Country. Some beautiful specimens. A list of some of them, Lakeside Spellbinder, Dinner Jacket, Designer Genes, First Frost, Patriots, Paradigm, amongst other ones.
Several of the Mouse Hostas have woken up and are starting to show their colours, Funny Mouse, Smiling Mouse, Mousecapades and You’re so Vein. Hopefully the others will be coming soon Blue Mouse Ears, Ruffled Mouse, Snow Mouse, and Dancing Mouse.
Checked on the hostas today at our Milverton site. Garlic spraying and checking for slugs and snails. Came across a very nice surprise, our first flower on our Bluebells. I normally get the feeling spring has arrived once I see them. Not sure how they will feel though with the weather forecast for this week!
The Hostas at our Milverton Site waking up. This is a selection of photographs of them after they had their garlic spray. Canadian Blues, Francee, So Sweet, Lakeside Cha Cha, Summer Fragrance, Wide Brim, Halcyon, Devon Greens, Patriots, Frances Williams, Krossa Regals, Elegans, and many, many more.
The first morning for a long time when there has been dew on the leafs of Hostas.
Moving Hostas between sites. Blue Ivorys, Funny Mouse, Bob Olson, Dilithium Crystal, Canadian Blues, Yellow Polka Dot Bikinis, and the odd, Blue Angel, Ruffled Mouse, Snow Mouse, Emerald Tiara and Autumn Frosts.
I thought I would share a couple of photos of our young Coconut and Custard Hostas. The pictures have not been adjusted, but they look so vibrant and almost like flowers opening up!
Some more Hostas growing now. I especially like the colours on the Summer Fragrance shoots, really psychedelic.
Thought I would give a little update on the Hosta Stiletto. Their leaves are fully open now and their colour is quite charming. Nice to see some Hostas in leaf again!
