Re: mini-hostas in pots

> Has anyone tried planting the dwarf or mini-hostas in strawberry jars?

I have--it works very well, esp. with the big jars. I collect minis and
dwarfs, and they spread pretty fast, so it's a great gift to make for
people. Strawberry jars are on sale this time of year. I like the look of
hostas in these jars--almost like the Japanese hostas curving off rock
faces into the water. Some of the little ones have less of an upright
habit and so are perfect for it. Add sand and pea-rock to the soil. In
the top, something tallish and weird, like 'Tortifrons' or 'The Twister'.
