To cut back or not to cut back Hostas in late Autumn: that is the question? The answer really depends on whether or not you can stand to look at a mushy border through Winter?
You may know that eggshells are a great way to deter slugs from chomping on your prized plants but how do you gather enough eggshells in order for this barrier method to be successful?
Learning which plants in your garden need to be protected or moved before Winter will save you time and money in the long run.
If you ever get the chance to visit the garden, Lanercost, in Busby Road, Carmunnock, do not think twice, as a wander round it will not only delight and amaze you, it will inspire you with a new found love for plants!
I love Hostas: the way they in wait, dormant under the soil, then spring from the ground, leaping towards a majestic, arching form! I love their huge, glossy leaves; their myriad shades of colour and their end of season spiky, floral finale! Unfortunately for both me and the Hostas, the slugs absolutely love them too!
