Re: A Timetable for Hosta Care

ya, what a fresh smell.  
Now I've got a question concerning the growth cycles, since it seems to bee 
what Bob bases his hosta care schedule around.  What about the different 
cycles that some species of hostas have....like plantaginea, that makes 
flushes of leaves all summer and has a longer growth cycle?  I'm thinking 
about an article that was in the AHS Journal several years ago about the 
different cycles.  Shouldn't we take that into consideration?  Also, is Bob's 
schedule based on the climate in North Carolina so we need to consider that 
too?  Do hostas there go dormant in the hot summer, whereas they would not up 
here in MN?  

or...is his schedule generic enough that these things don't matter that much?
