Caring for My Hosta Garden

I am always so glad to see new gardens thrive around my farm.

Last year around this time, we planted hundreds of hosta plants in a new garden down behind my chicken coop yard. I first got these plants as bare-root cuttings and kept them in a cold frame for several months until they were big enough to transplant. In all, about 700 hostas in a variety of cultivars including 'Wide Brim,' 'Francee,' 'Regal Splendor,' 'Elegans,' and 'Blue Angel.' Yesterday, we added a generous layer of mulch to the garden bed. I'm happy to report, all of the plants are doing great and growing wonderfully.

Here are some photos.
