Pests that eat Hostas
I recently bought 2 Hostas and planted them, they were doing great and then I noticed that the leaves were eaten in half! I searched the plant and found two culprits ...one a brown grub and the other sow bugs also the stem of the plant is barly there, it has been eaten to almost the whole stem!!! I did'nt know what to do? so I wrapped alumum foil around the stem... and sprayed the leaves with Hot pepper sauce mixed with water.
Does any one out there know of what to do??? I love my Hostas
I am in Camp Verde, Arizona where the elevation is 3,500.
So the weather is about 10 degrees cooler then Phonenix Az.
