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.

Plants should be planted after the last frost and soil is workable. Loosen the soil and dig a hole 2.5-5 cm (1-2") deep. The crown of the plant which is where all the roots come together, and any growth on top of the crown should be at the soil surface level. Place the root in the hole spreading the plant roots out. 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.

Planting Depth: 2.5-5 cm (1-2")

Plantling Spacing: 180 cm (6')

Plant Spread: 150-180 cm (5-6')

Suggestions

Growing Suggestions:

  • Hostas perform best in full shade or part shade and grow best in soil with good drainage.
  • In Fall, after a few frosts, hosta leaves get mushy. Cut the leaves back to ground level to avoid slugs and potential disease.
