Re: hostas in pots

In a message dated 1/1/00 8:51:37 AM Eastern Standard Time, eoneill@ibm.net 

<< Heh,heh. That's why I asked the question about growing hostas in ceramic
 self-watering pots! And added benefit is no slugs, no earwigs! (Just a
 plant-eating cat)

Gerry, I have a pot full of hosta starts outside.  They were the refuse from 
a day of hosta dividing at my friends place.  I decided to leave them in the 
pot and to force them now just for fun.  Besides, I have no idea what plants 
are in there.  I learned last night in the "chat room" that hostas need 700 
hrs. dormancy.  Correct me if I am wrong, but that is just a little over four 
weeks!  If it is sixty degrees here today as predicted then I just may bring 
the pot in tonight.

Grow that cat some cat nip or some grass in a pot, the hostas won't hurt him 
if he does eat them, probably good for him.  

Plant eating cat, you are making me miss my kitty, she was almost eighteen 
when she passed away.  She was very tidy about trimming the plants, very neat 
and even, and she loved catnip growing in a pot.
