Hostas, Lily-of-the-Valley and Heuchera Melting Fire

I call this 'Hosta Highway.' Being shady for most of the day it's the perfect place for them.

Nice combo Nariz. It looks like the copper ring method of slug control actually works?

LOVELY :)

Yes, Poppylover, it works - as can be seen by the fact that the Hosta in the tree trunk has been nibbled while the others have not. I'll find him .... and when I do .....!

Absolutely perfect, Nariz, and what a brilliant colour your heuchera is. When OH finally gets round to digging out my shade bed, I shall be following your example.

Thanks Gattina - the bed needs more digging and stone removal, but that's on the back-burner as the veggie beds get the attention first. I'm so pleased with the 'Sum & Substance' hosta as it sulked for a couple of years after being dragged kicking and screaming into a different country until I gave it a good talking to, threatening to heave it out and dump it if it didn't do its stuff - now it's leaves are the size of dinner plates and it's never looked so good! ;o)

Which one is the S&S hosta? You bully, you! Obviously worked a treat!

It's the large-leaved one at the top of the photo. It doesn't really show up as being so huge in this picture so maybe I'll take another photo to show the size of the leaves. I find most things cave in if I threaten them! Haven't tried it on Partner yet - no need - but if ever ..................!!!!!!;o)
