Shape up or ship out
Lots of us seem to have long want lists for 2014 - my problem is space, so I'm watching for hostas in my garden that are slacking off, and may lose their real estate to some new up-and-comers if they don't watch out. Some that are on notice, based on 2013 performance......
Hadspen Samphire - really pretty in spring, but ratty and very plain all summer and fall.
Night Before Christmas - another whose white centre can't seem to thrive in hot summers, and who looks really crappy by September.
Blue Boy - another that is absolutely gorgeous in spring, but just doesn't deliver later on. I like plain green, but this one is just boring.
Honeysong - I seem to have several creamy edged greens, and this one flattened out in summer and spent the season looking as though it needed a drink.
I don't hate any of these - I just think I could replace them with others that would give me more pleasure.
Do you have any that you might carry to the curb, give to your annoying neighbour, donate to the plant sale????
