My hostas are really really dry, the soil is powdery. It hasn't rained in ages and there are on the east side of the house so when it rains they don't really get much anyway. During the summer I water them even if it rains usually.
So it has been 58 here the past two days and now the next 2 days will be 38. Lows at night in the 20's. I thought about watering but I think it is bad for them to have water freeze over their crowns? Not sure what to do?
Would think that you could add the water in a ring around the crown, not in it, here in the Tundra approaching spring, snow will start melting and than we will have nights of freezing temps without no adverse effect.
As Yogi Berra said, “It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”
well could try watering around the area, not getting it on the crown, we rarely have much snow cover here that lasts more than a day or two. Of course usually as soon as it melts it re-freezes and that would be over the crowns.
