Re: Discussion plants with lots of new growth

The plants that are very vigorous and have that wonderful ongoing flush of 
new growth of course, they scream I am very happy.  But what about those 
plants that you receive that though they seem not unhappy really do not show 
you in any way that what you are doing is working.   Aren't there several 
varieties of hostas that are termed slow growing and people should not be 
concerned.  Are slow growing varieties something that is inherit in the plant 
because of its parentage or just particular to that plant.  EG.Are all 
tokudamas normally slower growing than Plantagea offspring.  When is over 
fertilizing a problem?  I went to a meeting where it was mentioned that we 
have all bought plants that were thriving only to have them come back up in 
the spring considerably smaller.  That the thriving plant could have been 
forced with fertilizers to become big too quick and was in fact a young 
plant.   What are others thoughts on this subject.  Thanks Chris
