Caring for your Hostas

Hostas need a lot of water- this is why we never recommend planting any hosta in full hot sun. During prolonged dry spells you will need to give the plants a good deep watering.

 Feed your hostas.  We recommend that you feed your plants three times per year. Once in very early spring with a good top dressing of well rotted manure or compost plus bone meal.. A second time in late spring with a good drenching of fish emulsion plus blood meal. Then a third time in mid summer with another drenching of fish emulsion and top dressing of rotted manure.

 After the plants have bloomed, cut off the scape back. Otherwise, nourishment is wasted producing seed pods.

When the foliage begins to die back in fall, trim the plants back to the ground.
