Question by Twinklestar: HoW can i keep the Deer from eating all my Hosta’s?
Im so upset to see a couple of my Hosta’s completely eaten up by the deer this morning. I used to keep netting over them, but that is so un-attractive imo. What other ways can i keep them from chowing down on my plants?

You really cant. Deer will get accustomed to any smell or taste you dish out as far as deer repellents.

Answer by ANGEL(\o/)
Cut them off if you don’t like how it looks. Otherwise you can just leave the stem on.
“You can definitely cut off the stems (scapes). It will not damage your plants at all. If you are not doing anything with the seeds, you can cut them back as soon as the flowers finish blooming. If you are not concerned about the flowers at all, you can even cut the scapes before the flowers bloom. This will allow the plant to grow more quickly. This is a good idea if the plant has not matured yet. Once it has matured, you can then enjoy the flowers.

Question by Gardening Girl: I have a hosta that shows brown spots on the leaves.?
I have one hosta that has brown spots on the leaves. It started getting spots about a year or so after I planted it. This hosta is very big. It produces flowers every year so the plant seems to be thriving despite the brown spots on the leaves. What is wrong with it?
