My hostas did not come back
I bought a huge hosta plant last year at a garden club sale. It was absolutely gorgeous. I split it into 5 plants and planted them in a shade area along my driveway. The plants did fine all summer last year.
Only one came back this year, and it is half the size I'd expect it to be.
The area gets quite a bit of water (melted snow) and it's along the woods. I'd like to figure out what happened, if that's possible, so that I can plant something else and not have the same issue. Is there any way to determine what happened? Would excess water over the winter do this? Possible a deer issue? I don't think it was the deer because there are hostas all through my neighborhood, and nobody else seems to have had an issue.
