Hostas are gone, what happened?
I have been growing beautiful Hostas in my flower garden, this is the 9th year, and they have always come up with no issues. This year only 3 plants have come up and they look bad. I had at least 10 plants out there and one of them was so huge that it's flowers were 5-6 ft in the air. I have had an issue with Voles for 4 years and nothing has ever happened to my Hostas. What is going on? Should I go digging around to see if the bulb/crown is still there or should I leave them alone for awhile? No matter how crazy our weather has been, they have always been up by now. I am just sick at the thought of them being gone. I have 6 new plants I intended to add to the garden, but am now scared to out of fear that whatever is going on will effect them too. Help???
