I have strange growths coming from my new hosta plants. They are growing stalks of leaves where they bloom?

Question by Lea C: I have strange growths coming from my new hosta plants. They are growing stalks of leaves where they bloom?
I have six new hostas and they (in May) have started to grow vertical stalks where they would normally bloom in the fall. Is this normal, why is this happening, should I prune them?? Please give advice.

Answer by Rae
Don’t prune them, its normal. If you prune them you won’t have any blooms during the summer/fall.

What is a good way to make hosta plant grow larger and look fuller?

Question by Marisol M: What is a good way to make hosta plant grow larger and look fuller?

Answer by Tim Taylor
Hostas will grow best in rich organic soil. A loamy soil type may not need the addition of organic matter, but few of us are so lucky to garden in ideal soil and will need to add organic amendments. The recommended soil is well drained, has a slightly acidic pH, and is enriched both with nutrients and organic matter.

Is it to late in spring to split a hosta plant?

Friday, December 17th, 2010

Question by Ms S: Is it to late in spring to split a hosta plant?
i would like to split a hosta now, is it to late? I live in western New York.

Answer by Mr. Mole
Hello New York from Great Britain No you are not too late to split your Hosta, it would have been better to have done it earlier, you will not kill the plant but you will delay or inhibit blooming.

Have an opinion on this topic? Let us know.
