Growers of potted up hosta
I've entered into the potted up hosta world as an experiment to find out what the advantages and disadvantages are to growing potted hosta and to see if I've got what it takes to stick to it, to actually succeed at it.
Seeing Dave's thread, thinking of Mocc in Alabama, Paula in Florida, Bkay in Texas, Babka in California and others I can't recall at this instant...I really want to understand what it's all about and your commitment to it. It's not just sticking a plant in a pot and letting it to grow.
My foremost thought is " they are safer from slug damage" .
Secondly, they are portable, occupy less space.....which adds up to - " I can have more".
> > > I would be very interested in hearing more about the reality aspect....for example...what is your worst pet peeve...squirrels seem to rank high up there... What aspect of growing in pots do you NOT like or have patience for?....but you do it anyway. What are the aches and pains of pot growing - and don't hold back.
I see countless examples of beautifully growing potted hosta. I would love a true perspective of "behind the scenes" .
This inquiring mind wants to know.
