Planting Hosta Seeds?

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Question by mommy of 2: Planting Hosta Seeds?
I have about 50-70 hosta seeds that a friend gave me. I dont have time or a green thumb to start them in my home. Can I plant them in a row by the edge of my woods/yard for them to grow? Will they grow? First time home owner and first time for trying to plant things. I also have some Hosta bulbs. What do i need to do with them?

Answer by Rainbow
If you want a household solution, try one part soap to two parts water. I usually use Seven, though. It is non-toxic, and it comes in powder or spray. Seven controls most residential pests.

What do you think? Answer below…

Hosta Trouble?

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Question by lilacandivy: Hosta Trouble?
I have a small hosta plant, not sure what kind it is. It is alive and well-established but not flourishing. The leaves, almost as soon as they are about 3″ long, start to grow brown on the tips and the edges until the whole leaf just shrivels up. Why are the leaves shriveling?? Am I watering too little/much?
it is in a pot in my bedroom, which faces west so it is fairly shady. It gets about an hour or so of direct sunlight in the afternoon.
