Re: Hosta planted to deep froms a second crown at right depth.(don't count on it!)


<<<<when called on by a customer to see why the plant isn't growing like it
should.>>>

Exactly!  I always went by the general saying that Sagae was a little slow.
Now I know why it was so  with mine.  After all these yrs., and having
started with a fairly large piece, I kept waiting for it to spread.  It had
the height and beautiful large leaves, but never spread.
This is making me think of a couple of other hostas that I had purchased at
the same time, and planted the same way, straight out of the pot, into their
hole.  Will have to check them out this spring.
