I got the slugs out of my garden!

|Last year I was gifted some Hosta "Mighty Mouse". This year it is floundering and it is having extrema problems holding on to leaves. The most I've been able to get out of this plant at one time has been 3; they keep coming and going. The leaves never grow much bigger than early season emergent leaves. I think ... there's a scape ... trying to be produced but not enough chlorophyll to support the growth from the miniscule leaves.
Any one have any thoughts on this? How does one kick some sense into Mighty Mouse? My other hosts right now seem to be fine around this plant. Personally in my 18 years of hosta growing I've never seen anything like this.

|The plant might be a dud. Your best bet might be to get another one.

|I agree.......I have found BME to be a willing grower in my garden. Try a new plant in a different spot.
