Posted this elsewhere, but thought maybe this was the proper place.

Hi Everyone,
I'm new here. Last fall I gathered a lot of hosta seeds to plant this winter. Alas, I can't remember where I put them! Seems I didn't put them in the logical place, like with all my other seeds. Today I went outside to see if I could find any left lying around. It seems I have about six :(. But I'm going to give them a try anyway.

Another note, I'm impressed everyone knows the names of all their hostas! I tried one summer to identify all mine, and short of some that I just happen to remember their names, I'm at a loss. The metal tags I put in the ground lost their writing. I'm in zone 5a (at least I was, things are changing here fast). I was still picking tomatoes and peppers in October. Garden should have been wrapped up by mid September.

Anyway, I hope to learn a lot here and visit often. Hostas and Huecheras are my favorites.
