Description:

I love growing Hostas in my garden. They have such a wonderful mix of shades and most of them have beautiful flowers in mi-late summer. They are great in partial shade and I often grow them by water as they provide good protection for pond animals!

Care:

The main challenge with Hostas is slugs. Slugs love to eat their leaves so you'll need to take this into consideration. I mainly grow Hostas in pots and use copper tape to keep the slugs away. You can also try sand, copper hoops or a garlic spray. Some people use pellets but I try and avoid these.

 

Hostas are very easy to divide and this can be done most times of year but is best in autumn or early spring.
