 Hi Clyde,
 When is it too late to fertilize Hosta because it will trigger new growth 
 late in the growing season?  I was just wondering if it was too late to 
 fertilize mine now.

If your plants have been in the ground for most of the year then you should 
be able to fertilize until they turn yellow/brown in the fall.
The only time I have had problems is on new material that has come in late in 
the year-but if it's mature NOW IS the time to keep them good and feed and 
watered well-then you will have more increase and larger plants next year-but 
remember the water too.
