Hi! Joanne wrote about new plants she had received and planted and they are 
getting too much sun.

Here is my suggestion. Dig them up and put them in containers until trees 
provide shade. Use something like Pro-Mix with a bit of builders sand in the 
containers. Move the containerized plants to a shady spot. Add a dose of a 
solution of water and a fungicide.
 The hostas won't die if left in situ, but they will be a drag for rest of 
Fertilize with a weak solution of Miracid after you have transplanted them in 
containers==best to use are the ol' clay pots.
