Hostas do well in average to rich soil with ample moisture during the growing season. They may be given a complete fertilizer such as 10-10-10 granular according to the label instructions in early spring and/or a top dressing of compost. I like to simply top dress with compost. It helps the soil stay moist and it releases nutrients all season long as it breaks down.

Best wishes with your garden!
