Hi Gerry,

When I make purchases late in the year, I sink the pot as it is, usually
containing soil.

I wouldn't recommend keeping any plant potted indefinately since it will
eventually become pot bound, and suffer for it. ALSO, if both your GE are
not potted, seems there has to be some other reason since one is doing well
without being potted.

Those of you who plant your hostas in pots and then sink them in the
ground, do you use soil, or soilless mix?

I have two 5-yr-old Great Expectations, both purchased from the same source
and planted maybe a foot and a half apart. One is doing great, the other
one not living up to my expectations. One of my local hosta nurserymen said
GE likes its roots confined, and I should try potting it, then sinking the
pot in the ground. Comments?
