Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Hostas are very useful shade-loving plants, which can thrive in moist, damp, dark borders, or difficult, dry shady borders. Plants are quick-growing, clump-forming and the bold leaves are colourful, robust and weatherproof.

Hosta fortunei 'Aureomarginata' has ribbed leaves, in pure green and edged in golden-yellow. During the summer, purple, bell-shaped flowers appear on showy, 90cm (36") stems. Excellent ground cover for shady borders. Height: 55cm (22"). Spread: 100cm (39").


Culinary note: The best part to use is the hoston, the rolled up leaf as it emerges in the spring. Cooking depends on the size of the hostons, small ones can be fried for a few minutes, going well in stir fries. Thicker ones are better boiled and used as a vegetable.

Water Hosta plants regularly throughout summer until fully established. In autumn, remove old foliage and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Lift and divide Hosta plants in autumn every third year to maintain their vigour.
Grow Hosta plants in sun or dappled shade, on rich, moist, well-drained soil. Plants can grow well in a sunny border, but will need to be kept reliably moist. Plants may perform better on slightly acid soils. Before planting, work some fresh compost or general fertiliser into the top 20cm of the soil. Alternatively plant Hostas in patio containers in soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.
