BAP-10 SPRAYING OF HOSTAS IN LATE SUMMER! ...looks like a NO'NO? ..and yes! 
...that is the question:

Seems to me? ..that spraying hostas in late summer (mid to late August) in 
an attempt to induce new offshoot production, can result in a negative 
dwarfing of the next generation of eyes, shoots and plant's growth cycle?

TO WHIT -- last year I sprayed Great Expectations, June & Patriot.  These 
were field-liners; in their second summer of growth here, after obtaining 
them from a tissue culture lab.
                  No new offshoots resulted last year, and this spring the 
plants are quite dwarfed; and again, are still single stemed/shoots, with 
no new eyes (off shoots?).  Meanwhile, plants which were sold from these 
batches to others last year, and planted in their own gardens, without any 
BAP-10 treatments = all are three eyed plants <<and this is the minimum>> !!!

I recall, that Mary Chastain, reported something comparable/similar via 
E-mail, when she did an autumnal BAP treatment the year before I 
did?  Thought I should mention this.  I personally, will never ever do a 
late summer BAP10 treatment again ..on anything!!!! ..since it looks like I 
would have had at least 3 times the quantity of plants, had I not used the 
autumnal treatment of BAP10?

AND ...am I wrong on my assumptions REGARDING -- what happens when you 
BAP10 your hostas in late summer?  I THINK NOT!

<<just curious & wondering: WHAT Y'ALL THINKS?>>  "hehe"
