Growing Hostas in the sun
If this topic has been addressed before, I apologize.
I'm more than a little devastated today. We don't have a huge back yard, but right in the middle of it is a 100 year old, GIGANTIC Maple. It shades our entire backyard. Because of this amazing tree, we've been lucky to plant a large variety of gorgeous Hostas. The Hostas border along all three sides of our privacy fence and along the back of our home.
We just found out that the tree is diseased and has to come down. It is the only tree we have. :((( Our Hostas will now be in full sun all day. The only Hostas that aren't directly shaded by that tree are the ones planted along the house. The house shades them all day.
How will our Hostas fare? Is there a way to care for them in order to keep them ? Is there ANYTHING we can do? The thought of losing them to the sun after 'collecting' them for 20 years is breaking my heart.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice !! Echo
