Instructions

Growing Instructions:

Hosta plants are shipped as bare roots. If the roots are very dry upon receipt, soak them in luke-warm water for a few minutes. If not planting upon arrival, remove from the plastic bag and store in a cool, dry dark location.

Hostas perform best in full shade or part shade and grow best in soil with good drainage.

Plants should be planted after the last frost and soil is workable. Loosen the soil and dig a hole that is twice the width and depth of the plant's root ball. Place the plant in the hole with the crown (where the leaves and roots meet), even with the surrounding soil and any plant growth is visible at the soil surface. Spread the plant roots out and fill in around the roots, firmly pressing down the soil so it is even with the surrounding ground, and water well. Make sure there are no air pockets in the soil.

Do not allow soil to completely dry out. If plants are not receiving water from regular rain, provide your plants with 2.5 cm (1") of water per week when grown in shade. When planted in a sunnier area, they will require more water.

Plantling Spacing: 120 cm (48")

Suggestions

Growing Suggestions:

In Fall, after a few frosts, hosta leaves get mushy. Cut the leaves back to ground level to avoid slugs and potential disease.
