Re: 2nd flush of leaves

A second flush of leaves usually means you are water and fertilizing you
hostas. I try to get a good second flush on my hostas because I want to grow
them big fast. (Van Wade envy). Some hostas will not put out a second flush
of growth. About this time of year I  stop all fertilizing of hostas. I have
found that Peters water soluble fertilizer seems to enhance a second flush.
My last fertilizing was done last Sunday.

Stay tuned for a second opinion,
