Monitor soil all season to maintain moisture. At the start of each season, feed with an all-purpose fertilizer, following package directions. 0 Avoid watering hostas in the evening; doing so attracts slugs and snails. For slugs, spread diatomaceous earth around the plants, or set out shallow dishes filled with beer. Protect tender emerging shoots from animals and human traffic. Shady Oaks Nursery Catalog;, Klehm nursery catalog but susceptible to slug and snail damage Plant blue and dark-green hostas in filtered shade to maintain their deeper color. Yellow hostas can tolerate sun, especially in cool-summer regions, and will turn brighter gold in sunnier conditions. When planted in shade, yellow hosta cultivars take on a chartreuse color. Hostas are extremely tough, long-lived perennials that may outlast their owners. The hosta’s common name, plantain lily, was inspired by the large size of its leaves and comes from the Latin word meaning "sole of the foot." The genus was named in honor of Nicolaus Thomas Host (1761?1834), physician to the emperor in Vienna. Plant in spring or fall in a site receiving morning sun in north and filtered shade in south. Amend soil with well-rotted manure or compost. Plant container-grown hostas at the same depth they were in the pot. Planting distance varies, depending on the variety; space at a distance equal to or slightly less than the mature spread. Mulch to conserve moisture. 0 Deadhead after they flower, and cut foliage to the ground after first frost or before spring growth resumes. Divide hostas approximately every 3 to 5 years as needed, preferably after plants have flowered. fertile, well drained 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 > 0 0 1 hostas thrive in shady woodland gardens; use them as ground covers or in mixed borders 0
