Holy Guacamole, look at all those hosta!
OK, so, some of you may know that I am doing a big...wait, let me fix that...BIG project/remodel/renovation of the area just behind my house. This area is where all of my potted hosta usually live, as well as some in-ground ones. Well, everything had to be dug up, potted up and moved! The whole area is getting relandscaped, for lack of a better word, regraded, essentially. We've been having water issues around the foundation, etc. to cause the renovation. So, it's out with the old and in with the new, a complete blank slate! I'm expanding the beds around back dramatically and a lot of potted hosta are actually going in the ground (I'll still have some potted, though).
Anywho, I had to move ALL existing potted hosta to the front bed (it's the only one that had enough room b/c it's newly established, to put pots in between the existing plants). Here is the before pic:
And here is the bed, all loaded up!:
Man, that's a lotta Hosta! At least, all in one place, it is! Talk about instant full bed. Hopefully, they won't be out there too long, but it works for right now. Shade is at a premium around here, especially with backhoes, etc. coming in soon. Gotta keep my hostas out of harm's way. Can't wait until I get to actually start gardening the back area again.
