Rescued Hosta Continental Divide
My Continental Divide has been a real slow grower. I suspected Maple tree roots was a problem, so we dug it up today. Never expected to find this white powdery substance in the soil. Any idea what it is?
Here it is, slightly smaller than when I got it last year. The hostas around it are thriving:
Maple tree roots and white powdery substance that is very dry despite the downpours of the last two days.
These roots would have swallowed this hosta up:
Horrible root system. I'm hoping I wasn't too late:
This is one good reason to bare root your hostas before planting them in your gardens.
