I have to admit I am a Hosta newbie and one that needed to rip out all my hosta's due to HVX.
My problem is that I am finding conflicting information on how long to wait to plant in "that spot".
I dug out all my hosta's 6" wider than the drip line and 8" deeper than I found roots and discarded everything. For 25 hosta's (most very, very small planted this year) I needed 3 yards of topsoil. My eyes are bleeding from 3 days of research.
While I will not plant on top of the old spot how much am I at risk at planting close? I don't want to plant something like Empress Wu or Sum and Substance and have it infected in a year by the roots...
I can't find any information that is somewhat conclusive on how root transmission works...Links or experience would help me considerably.
and for ken....
I love... your experience......
On this..... you are the best.
