Don't Rot Your Hostas

By Christine27360

When planting a new Hosta liner, make sure when planting it in the ground not to bury the crown of the plant. This will lead to potential crown rot and imminent death. Make sure the crown is level with the soil.

Don't have trouble planting hostas, but the deer seem to think that I put them out for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

If you are planting a dormant Hosta, note where the white and purple meet on the eye(s). That's the line where you want to plant it. If you are going to err, err on the side of being too high rather than too low.
