Description

Hostas are always popular for their showy foliage, but slugs and snails can ruin your plants overnight. Although there’s no such thing as a slug-proof Hosta, these RHS AGM varieties aren’t as susceptible to hungry molluscs. Their thick puckered leaves are blue colouring makes them far less tasty and much more resilient in the event of an attack! Grow our slug resistant Hosta collection in shaded borders and containers.

T&M top tip: Prevent lush growth on Hostas by not feeding quite so often and watering only when necessary. Leaves will grow thicker and sturdier, making them more slug resistant.

Collection comprises:

Hosta 'Halcyon' - Ribbed, blue-grey foliage and pale lavender flowers. Height: 50cm (19"). Spread: 70cm (28").

Hosta 'First Frost' - Glaucous blue-green leaves with a cream margin and lavender flowers. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 90cm (39").

Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears' - Extremely compact with rounded blue-green foliage and lilac-purple flowers. Height and spread: 30cm (12")


3 bare root hosta plants - 1 each of variety (KC2029)

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
