Re: Fertilizing/ "Organic" Gardening

<<  "Different plants have different nutritional needs."  Well, that's true, 
 have you ever seen a hosta garden where the hostas have depleted the soil of
 nutrients.  And if so, what companion plants should be planted with the 
hostas to
 alleviate the problem?   >>

I think I have a solution. Dig up your monogeneric hosta garden and plant the 
hostas in containers. Sow annual winter rye in the beds. In spring, rorotill 
the beds and replant hostas.
In fall, remove hostas and place in containers. Cut down anything that is 
creating shade. In spring, plant bed with some garish marigolds. In fall, 
replant shade trees.(This could prove to be quite dear.)
Then replant hostas  the next spring.
And then repeat, as indicated above.
