Growing Hostas from Seed and Watching for Sports

Growing your own hosta plants from seed can be a fun winter project. All you need is the seed, some soil for seedlings and a little patience. In the summer you can watch for sports on your mature plants.

Hello all, we just bought our first house, and have no flowers anywhere. We went to walmart and bought a few bags of "root" hostas. I planted them down the walkway of our front steps, and its been almost one month and we haven't seen any sign of life other then some grass and weeds, and a few helicopters that took root and started to bloom we pulled out. We just today added mulch over the area. Also, I must confess that we did not soak the roots, or anything before we planted them, because we had no clue that needed to be done. I am not joking when I tell you we have no idea what we are doing. lol I would of loved to found someone online that had some starts of actual plants they could share, and I even posted a want add on a few sites looking for some, but no one replied Sad How can I tell if these suckers are going to pop up at some point??

I just found this site, and was reading through it and am trying to learn a little about things as I am wanting to plant a lot of plants since I have a huge yard. Im not sure if this is where I am supposed to post this, and if im not supposed to be posting here for questions of this sort, I am sorry. Not sure what all info I need to add to this to help get some answers. I live in central Indiana and from what I have found on the internet I think I am in zone 5 if that helps with anything.
