    JoAn has a mature Guacamole hosta in a tub out here in the corner of the

for my garden... perhaps offer something in trade.
    We sit hosta in good sized pots around quite a bit. they make wonder
container plants. Quite often I will grow one on in a container until it is
mature, then transfer to my garden. They bulk up faster in a container, I
