    Hosta’s are shady plants do not put them in direct sunlight or they will die.

    Keep them watered for about the first 2 weeks and hopefully you planted them in partial shade. They’ll have brown edges if you put them in direct sun. And watch for snails! They love them!

    water water water. mine are in shade and full sun. all thriving. of course there are hundreds of kinds of hostas. I imagine some are more sun friendly than others. water every day til their root system is established. (about 1 week to 10 days) then water at least once a week. if they die with the watering(and you got enough root when you planted) they probably don’t like full sun so don’t do that again. ask the nursery man which ones will take sun.

    Hosta is a wonderful full shade to part shade plant. If they do get any sun, it needs to be either “dappled” or morning sun. There are hostas that can tolerate more sun than others, so you’ll want to be sure to read the literature that comes with your purchase. If you know the specific name of your hosta, you can run a search on it.

    “Hosta care should begin with the plant food that is available for good growth. … Hosta care concerns then should be directed toward water availability. Caring for hosta should include a minimum of 1 inch of water a week. …” http://www.abouthostas.com/hosta_care.shtml
