Try posting this in the classified forum. You might get a better response.

I may try that. It doesn't seem like there is a lot of posting going on in the hosta forums. I have a lot up or coming up now that we have had some warmer days.

I've started cleaning up some of my beds and see some life out there! Unfortunately, our weather has been pretty weird up here. Mother Nature can't decide if it's spring or winter! 4"of snow yesterday, and 70's for the high temps on Thursday! It does get pretty quiet on this forum through the fall and winter months, but look out mid-spring! Good luck selling your hosta. I think there's quite a bit of activity on the classified forum.

Hi, Rose
Did you ever come to the Dave's Garden meeting at KY Lake? Just wondering if I had met you in person year's ago. Do you grow many minis? I am going to make a trough for mine this Spring.

No, I've never been to Kentucky Lake. I have a lot of minis and small hosta varieties. All of mine are planted in the ground. I seem to have better luck keeping them watered if they're spread out in my beds. Potted plants tend to dry out too fast for me to keep up with.

That is what I am worried about. I will at least try it. One idea I saw and will try If I can find a wooden wagon wheel was to lay the wheel down on plant different varieties between the spokes. Hurray!

That sounds like a cute idea! Post pictures if you do it.
