Glen, my heart goes out to you and the others who have had the bad frost.  Guess this is coming out of Canada as we are due colder weather later in the week.  I don't think we will freeze but will watch and see.  I am sure you are broken hearted.  Sandra

Subject: Hosta Freeze

Things were bad here in southern Vermont last night. I will know later in
the day, but certainly over 1/2 of my hostas were frozen last night. Lots
of mushy hosta salad for lunch. Sprayed water early but have my doubts. I
always thought thick and well-substanced leaves were a good thing. The
leaves now clank together like ice cubes.
Prior to this there were a number of other heavy frosts which were a  great
barometer in determining what  hostas had any plantaginea  species in
them.They all went first.
In the immortal words of Yosarian in Catch 22: " So it goes."
Maybe next year.
"Ding an sich."...is it really there?
