Lynne's notes:

I'm a self-confessed hosta-aholic. Can't get enough of them! Like children it's hard to pick favourites but some I wouldn't want to be without. Captain Kirk is one of those. Yes it's another yellow and green one but unlike some it's a 'good doer' and not a prima donna. By that I mean it has substance as well as good looks and increases well (for me anyway) so you're not waiting years for a specimen plant in the shady border.
