Re: Question re: Astilbe NOW Blue Hostas

I use crushed eggshells for my rosemary shrubs and my lavenders. Also
put a handful in the hole when I'm planting my peppers. It mixes in
pretty well w/ the pea gravel in the herb bed. Will save some for my
hosta. I was looking at one called Halcyon that looks really nice too. I
really am going to need a shoe horn this year.
