A Garden of Hostas

It's always so exciting to see how the gardens grow and thrive around my farm.

In 2020, we planted hundreds of hosta plants down behind my chicken coop yard across the carriage road from my allee of lilac. I first got the plants as bare-root cuttings and kept them in a cold frame for several months until they were big enough to transplant. In all, more than 700 hostas in a variety of cultivars including 'Wide Brim,' 'Francee,' 'Regal Splendor,' 'Elegans,' and 'Blue Angel.' Now two years later, they're doing excellently, filling the space with verdant foliage.

Here are some photos.
