The Tattered Pew
When it comes to planting hostas in pots, choosing the right hosta plant is important. You need to make sure they will fit in your container.
Hostas LOVE organic compost but any potting mix will do. If you have the option to mix in some compost, do it!
Make sure to water regularly. Look at your soil and if it is dry water your hosta. Overwatering can lead to root rot so pay attention.
The best time to plant hostas is in the early fall. Choose a pot on the smaller side for the mature plant. This keeps them healthy and happy!
Cut back the leaves when they are brown and plan to bring pots into your unheated garage to winter your hostas.
