 I know the recommendation is to cut back the hail damaged hostas, but what if
 they are not cut back. Is it bad/harmful for the plant? Also, when you do cut
 them back, how close to the ground should they be cut.

Karen, I am especially enjoying some of this weather discussion as I have 
been reading a book of tall tales about Cy Gatton, from Belleville, OH.  I am 
using it as part of the curriculum for my arts intergration unit this fall.  
I was happily surprised to find that the main character is the ancestor to 
the Gattons of Wade and Gatton........oh well I digress........again.

I think the only reason to take away the damaged leaves is for aesthetics.  
If the look doesn't bother you then I would just leave it.  I am just pulling 
leaves off that had freeze damage as I can get to it.

Then there is the hostas that have no leaves or maybe one and a half leaf 
because of the rabbits.  They seem to pick on the same ones all the time.  
Some of them I can't even tell what they are.  Hopefully they will look 
better with the second flush of leaves or they may die.  N.
