Re: best hosta potting soil

Put rock in the pot above the drainage holes and sit in a container of water 24 hours a day. If they do not get occasional natural rain then leach the pots. Since your in a pot they must be fed. I mix hardwood fines with my container soil.

Dear Hosta friends, I'd very much like to know what do you think is the best potting soil for hostas. From growing on small divisions and to adult plants in big containers. I'm always at a loss looking for the perfect potting mix. I cannot find a good commercial potting soil, so I guess I should make my own; the ingredients I could have available are: peat moss, fine composted pine bark, 'azalea' soil, perlite and vermiculite. At present I do not have a good source for quality river sand or gravel. Please help!!! Jose
