Thanks Meg, thatís a good idea, Hostas are so easy to keep, look at this leaf, it wasnít like that yesterday, out on patrol in the early hours, I said to Muddy, Iím sure they march back here, after Iíve deposited them in the field, little beggars.

Couldnít upload that leaf again, Iíve put it in my reply to Muddy.

Re: Hostas.
