Re: hosta talk


That's a good idea.  Thank goodness we did not have the slug problem this
year like last year.  I will have to see if the shells are available around
here.  I think the granite runs somewhere in the same neighborhood.  When
the granite is dug into the soil it will also act as a deterrent for digging
and eating rodents.
