Hello Hosta Lovers.

My Friend Burton who is the owner of "Hosta House" in Salt Lake City says he would like to start putting together a valid list of Hosta Performances IN THE ACTUAL LANDSCAPE setting. I offered to help him any way I could and he accepted.

I was thinking that those of us here at garden.org who are actually growing our hosta in the ground in a landscaped setting could write our Sub species performances right here in the threads that Ann started on Daily Hosta.

Including our zones, humidity, and location. What are your thoughts on that?

I think that would be fun. Maybe we could get more people posting in the hosta forum. You have been a good draw this year for Hosta discussion. Thank you.

I do not know if I would be much help because some years my hosta garden is nothing but stems because they have been deer salad. Rolling on the floor laughing I have to laugh or I would cry.

That will not work they eat them all. When they attack the entire garden is gone in a night. I get herds I do not get occasional browsers. When they show up it is several deer.

At this point I have a fern garden. They do not eat those until everything is dead, I have started to buy more and more ferns so the hosta garden does not look real bad when/if I get attacked.

Sounds like the herd needs to be thinned.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
