Thank you so much for your help. I had a look and you are right. I think I have Hosta sieboldiana var. elegans.

look for hosta sieboldiana, there are many varieties, but that puckered look is mostly the sieboldianas.

Are my Hostas: Aphrodite or Japonica?

Question from wildlife friendly

We've got two Hosta plants, but not sure if they are Aphrodite or Japonica.
I looked online and they seem so similar that I cannot come to a decision.
Thank you for any help.

What’s wrong with my plants?

Question from Jeannie

In forum: Pests, diseases and invasive biosecurity risks

I have a north and west facing border. I have three large shrubs in there and it’s under planted with hostas and ferns. It has been planted for several years now without any problems. This year, my hostas and ferns have gotten yellow spots on them and the hostas were already starting to die back. Any ideas on what is causing it?

Re: Can anyone tell me what this plant is?

Message from ELAINE HUTSON

In forum: Identify a plant

It is a hosta, needs morning sun, no afternoon sun, would be better in the ground or lots of water in a pot.

What is this plant

Comment from Jane P

In forum: Identify a plant

Planted near a pond and is about 30 inches across and probably 2ft high. Looks a bit like a hosta or canna lily...no flower yet.

ALL SLUGS!

Message from Rosemary Clarke

In forum: Pests, diseases and invasive biosecurity risks

We have not noticed any green slugs but most slugs hate garlic. Use 1 clove of garlic in 1/2 litre of water or water and oil mixed,bring, to the boil and leave for a few days . Water or spray it on and around Hostas and any other plants known to be favourite fodder for slugs and snails. It is a bit time consuming, as it really needs to be done after it rains, but worth it. starting this year I have big leaved hostas as well as lupins and foxgloves. MAGIC! Good luck.

Check and see if it is hosta sieboldiana, there are too many hostas to keep track of ever one of them.

Re: Searching for plants

Message from Nicola

In forum: How to use the site

Dear Phil, please see attached screenshots. You can search the plant name using the predictive search at the top of the website.

I typed in the words Hosta frosted and found one match but not your specific plant Hosta Frosted Mouse Ears. Underneath the search bar there is an option for you to request we add this plant for you. Again see the screenshots attached.

Please let me know if this search works for you or if you need more help.
Many thanks, Nicola
p.s. we are now working on an enhancement which will allow you to keep a record of requested plants while we are working to enter them for you.

Searching for plants

Question from Phil Collins

In forum: How to use the site

I recently bought a Hosta "Frosted Mouse Ears" and thought it a good idea to add it to "my plants" on the Shoot website. However, when I search for it I am confronted with a list of over 9000 plants, not all of which are hostas, but most include the word "Frosted". I have tried with and without parenthesis (single and double) but it makes little difference. Am I being a bit dim or is this a problem with Shoot's site? Grateful for any advice.

Re: Snail/ Slug Eggs

Message from Carol

In forum: General

I wouldn't throw it all away. You could leave it open to dry out - and pick 'em out when there are birds around who might eat them for you. The soil is full of them and most plants grow pretty well. Perhaps I wouldn't use the compost to plant very snail-friendly plants like hostas, but you would be fine if it is geraniums.
