I was looking at my hostas this aft. I think
they are all up now, but not unfurled. I was wondering why a hosta would
go from having, lets say 20 eyes last year, to about half of that this year, but
these are very big eyes, maybe 3 x the size of last years? What
Also, a few plants have multiplied double to triple
the size (counting eyes again) but the eyes are so tight /close against each
other and pencil thin. Why? is this normal? Looks like they
may choke each other out when they start opening.
One more question, this time about roots.
I've noticed some plants that I've recieved have very thick white roots, with
very few smaller "rootlets" (i dunno what they're called) growing off of
these. Afew have a mass of small roots, very dense, and this is what I
usually have when I dig up any of my plants. Whats behind
And boy o boy, do I ever have a bunch of distorted
eyes this year, apart from the ones the dogs sat on!
Is all this normal, and I've just noticed it for
the first time, or is something weird happening?
