Hostas Are Wonderful in Containers

By Paul2032

Planting some Hostas in containers can bring wonderful variety to the garden. It also allows plants to be enjoyed on a patio or other shaded area where they can't go directly into the ground. A potted plant can also bring interest to a bed of Hostas. Give it a try.

Paul, you leave the hosta in the container in winter and it makes it ok??? Are there any special care requirements on the container in winter, just leave it outside??

I water occasionally if weather is mild and put the pots in a sheltered area in my car port.
