Welcome to Hosta La Vista, the blog of the friendly “punk” gardener with a sardonic sense of humour. This is the place for unconventional gardening and garden-related anecdotes.

First, I would like to say that there’s nothing wrong with doing things by “the book” – far from it – but there are always alternative ways of doing things. I am very much a believer in doing whatever works, whether it’s in “the book” or not, therefore I might suggest that if you are a purist gardener, you turn back now!
