What makes the difference?

  • Subject: What makes the difference?

I ordered some hostas a while back, from two different nurseries. A number of different hostas, all planted in the same new bed, which was prepped well beforehand. All of the hostas from one of the nurseries have put on new growth, some a tremendous amount, and all of the hostas from the other nursery are either just sitting there, or lost leaves to transplant shock. They were mailed on the same day, from both places, and received on the same day.

So, what makes the difference? What does one nursery do that another doesn't, to make their plants take off so well, or not? Could it be cultural/environmental, like, where the hostas came from, geographically?
