I hate to say it but...

As some of you might remember when I started posting in this forum I was planning a move and all my hostas were planted in ground. I was not real sure how I was going to take them all and with a bit of advise from everyone I had a go at it.I dug up everything I could find and loaded them and a tag into plastic grocery bags and moved them here. with no pots and all the bags of top soil frozen I didn't know what to do...Then Ken shows up with some "throw them on the drive way" comments and how tough they are so I left them. Sitting on the bags with the tops open. We then had the worst winter in 30 years and I knew it was over..about 2 weeks ago as it warmed I potted them all and hoped for the best...I now have pips comming up in every pot and I don't think I lost a single one! So as much as I hate to feed his ego..

Ken was right there that tough and they will make it over winter on the drive way...

Man that was tough to type glad I got it out of my system ROFL.Pics of said pots when it stops raining

hEY, Mike, so glad to hear from you. It is great to share such a huge chuckle this morning. Many of us who have less dramatic a story to tell--we did not put them on the driveway to spend the winter--have some losses. It is just so sweet to hear this driveway success story.

Ahhhhh, life is good. Cannot wait for Ken to get a look at your results. Good show!

That is great news about the pips! Very happy for you...but I never had a doubt....being one who over wintered her first hosta in a green garbage bag back in the early 80's.

Those of us who responded on that thread will be awaiting your pics...what the heck am I saying...all of us hostaholics want to see pics of your hosta!!!
