<< Hi my name is Debbie and I'm new to the list and to hosta's.  I have just
 fallen in love with these plants and have 16 different hostas already.  I
 have one that looks like it's being eaten.  the leaves look like that are
 being chewed on.  The other hosta's around are untouched at this time.  What
 animals would be doing this?
 thanks in advance >>
Hi Debbie:
Are they chewed around the edges?[Black Vine Weevil]; in the center with
oblong, rather neat holes?[Cutworms]; irregular holes in leaf?[Slugs]

Apply a Slug & Sowbug bait; dust base of plant with Sevin; plant impatienses
around plants.
