Re: rebloom

I have use water soluble fertilizers every two weeks or so in the past and I have had very good second and third flushes of leaves. I seems to me when I did this I got blooms very late in the season after the first blooms were gone and seed pods were even hanging on the first bloom scapes. Maybe these late blooms were from divisions that had formed that same season and being "pushed" with high amounts of fertilizers played a role. I will pay more attention this year.
Some people say hostas don't need very much fertilizer but around here they seem to respond very well to increased fertility. I have sandy soil low in natural fertility and this may be why I get these results.

Seems to me that since a division of a hosta plant is composed of its
own roots, a portion of rhizome tissue (attached or not)  and a shoot
which grew from a bud and the shoot is  made up of a meristem and
surrounding leaves with their petioles, that when the meristem changes
from a vegetative meristem to a floral meristem and blooms, that is all
that happens. It happens only once in the existence of the division.No
buds are involved at this point in the growth and development of the
division. The division has bloomed and it will not bloom again. It is
not a rebloomer, IMO. Please tell me where I am wrong.
