Hostas

Planting Your New Hosta

 Dig the hole two times the width of the root ball, and only as deep as the root ball.
 Place the root ball into the planting hole, double checking to be sure that the top of the root ball is even with the soil surface.
Then backfill the hole with soil, gently firming it as you go.
 Water plants thoroughly after planting. Don't let the soil dry out for the first week or two while the roots get established.

Water well. Soak plant in bucket of warm water for about 1 hour prior to planting. This will allow the plant to take more water up to the stem. Depending on the weather it may take 3 to 4 weeks to break dormancy and show leaves. Due to shipping shock some leaves may show signs of wilting, do not worry. They will come back and sprout new leaves. 

Please be patient! Enjoy.

*November - May buyers: 
When you receive your Hosta please notice that they are dormant during these months. After planting, they can stay dormant for 3 to 4 weeks before showing signs of life.
