Hi - It's been quite a while since I've posted to this site or worked in my yard, but I'm back! I have a new shade garden and would love some hosta. Since my yard has been so neglected - I have very little to swap - phlox, Stella de Oro day lillies, purple iris.... I live in Belmont - about 20 miles SW of Charlotte.

RE: WANTED: Wanted: Hosta Any Variety

Though I don't have any extra hostas to share I can tell you how I developed a large collection cheaply and quickly. First of all, if you plant them in "perfect" garden soil they will at least triple in size each year - and they are very easy to divide. Secondly, if you shop at Sam's Club in the early spring they sell these boxes of perennials. All the boxes cost the same (recently $14 per box) just the amount of roots or tubers in each box changes depending on how cheap the plants are. In most cases you get a dozen Hosta roots for the $14 but sometimes the collection totals 24 or 30 roots! I have never been disappointed in the Hosta collections offered by this company. Most often the roots are like 3 year old plants, very strong, very healthy. You have to get them early before they dry out. (I buy mine in February).
