Re: Hosta planted to deep froms a second crown at right depth.(don't count on...


Hi Narda,
All I know is that this discussion has started bells and lights going off in
my head.  I moved quite a few hostas around last year in the hopes that
their new location would help their growth.  My original bed (s) are on a
hill, with lots of rock and tree roots.  I know the roots don't help, but I
also thought the rocks inhibited their size.  I know I also have some
shifting of soil, from erosion and raking up wich would eventually change
the original planting depth.  Now I'm thinking that maybe the way I had
originally planted my hostas could be a factor.  I never disturbed the roots
back then, so they went from their pots into a nice hole. Never checked what
was happening in the pots.  Now I nearly beat them up before planting them,
making sure all the roots are loose and spread out.  These do much better.
Kinda thinking out loud here, and probably giving myself more work this
spring!
Smile
Barbara
