My hostas didn’t flower this year, what can I do to insure flowers next year?

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Question by Brokn: My hostas didn’t flower this year, what can I do to insure flowers next year?
The leaves look perfectly healthy and the plants filled out beautifully but no flower spikes and all the others in my neighbors yards are flowering nicely. They are planted on the south side of my house along a fence so they are mostly shaded but some dappled sunlight. A few are in more sun but they didn’t flower either.

I assume that they have flowered in the past. Question, have you fertilized them, perhaps you gave them to much Nitrogen.
Are the leaves bigger and greener than normal?

Water the plant individually and then separate the leaves with your hands until you find the base of the clover and pull it out. The water loosens the soil so the weeds are easier to pull out.

Answer by Woodie.
Hostas are best suited to a cool,shady environment.Sedum,(Which is great for butterflies),prefers an open sunny aspect.Sedum can be planted as you suggest,but is unlikely to thrive.

I just moved into a home with all kinds of beautiful landscaping…?

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

Question by JCW: I just moved into a home with all kinds of beautiful landscaping…?
There are hostas planted on either side of a walkway, and the hostas have grown so large that the walkway is now shrinking to almost nothing. I know absolutely nothing about gardening and I am wondering how I can cut these back properly without digging it up completely..Any advice??

Answer by Woodie.
Don’t worry about cutting back the hostas-they’ll die back naturally over the next few weeks.Being perennials
growth will restart next spring and the cycle continue.
