George we have been 7 inches short on rain fall this spring. In fact we are still over two inches behind. Add that to the amount that we did not have last summer I just wonder why they are larger this year.

The nights were cool and we had plenty of rain, ergo big hostas.

This year I continue to receive reports that the hostas in the south are
better that ever. They are growing. Even Sum and Substance is growing for
me. That is not normal. Now we had almost no winter and a very dry summer
and spring. Keep these facts in mind and tell me why.
The one other factor that I feel may have contributed to the situation is
that this year the plants only had one cool spell after they begin to grow.
It is not unusual for them to go through as many as 8 in a normal spring.
Can it be a fact that the hostas here would grow larger and better if we did
not have such drastic changes in temperature during their growing season?
