My Hosta Has Been Injured
Last Tuesday evening, we had bad weather here. We were all at the school's Baccalaureate in town and knew there were tornado warnings, but according to the people keeping an ear to the weather, it wasn't in the area as the church building.
As I drove home that evening, I noticed all kinds of tree debris along the road, the sides, the middle, from I-75 going on Hwy. 20-E toward Canton. As I got closer to our neighborhood, all I could think was, "Please Lord, don't let me drive up to my house to find one of those huge trees in the middle of my roof." Fortunately, all I found was more leaves, limbs, tree debris, but nothing harming the house...WHEW!
A few days later as I was working in my yard, I noticed a bed of hosta, as well as a couple of hosta I have planted around my mailbox, looking really pitiful. While the storm passed over our house, it dropped a lot of golf-ball sized hail. It shredded my hosta! They look pitiful. I had been so impressed with how they had just taken off this year and some of them more than doubled in size. (I just planted them last year)
Now I'm wondering whether or not new leaves will put out to take the place of these shredded ones. Any advice on what I should do to help them?
