What is your favorite growing tip for growing hostas?
The best way to grow big, healthy hostas is water....and lots of it. I even experimented once and grew a hosta in my pond all summer. It worked out great until I forgot about it, and it froze over the winter. oops. The hostas that grow the fastest in my yard receive morning sun, afternoon shade, and lots of water. They don't need heavy fertilizers. One of the reasons I love hostas so much is they don't require a whole lot of care. They are kind of like cats. I can leave and go on vacation, and my cats are fine as long as I left them food, water, and clean litter boxes. Hostas are much the same way. I water them good before I leave on vacation, and no need to worry about having someone come over and take care of them while I'm gone
