Answer: Sarah,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Add lots of compost to the soil to improve that sandy soil. Hosta are pretty iffy but if you want to try the give them a location with solid shade but bright light in the shade. Keep the soil moist.

Some great flowers for Mississippi can be found in the following online publication:

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
