About These Plants:

The Hostas are native to China, Japan and Korea. They grow in moist woodlands, open grasslands and thrive along rivers and stream banks.

Also known as Plantain Lily and Funkia.

They emerge late in the Spring but then quickly fill-out. It takes 2-4 years to grow to their full size (longer for the largest species.) When planting, be sure to leave enough room for the hostas to grow and spread out.

Light:

Hostas prefer shade and/or filtered sun; especially the more colorful varieties; this will allow them to look their best, especially the blue and gold forms. The green-leaved varieties are  more shade tolerant.

Soil:

Plant your hosta in humus-rich, evenly moist soil. 

Water:

Provide a slow, deep soaking each week throughout the growing season; about an inch of water. By not stressing the plant out from lack of water, it will grow faster, bigger and will look nice longer into the season.

Fertilizer:

Nutrients: Use slow release fertilizer or 10-10-10 granular fertilizer around the base of the clumps as the hostas come up. If using a liquid fertilizer, apply weekly as soon as the first leaves start to unfurl. 

Note:

For extra lush, healthy Hosta Plants, provide foliar feeding for your hosta plants with 2 tablespoons of Epsom Salt in a 1 gallon container of water. Spray once a month onto the foliage during their primary growth period. 

This is an easy plant to take care of.

Pests:

Remove any slugs you find  before the hosta leaves emerge. Check regularly and remove promptly.

Because banana plants grow so quickly, they are a heavy feeders.  Younger plants may need as much as ¼ to ½ pound of fertilizer per month.

Gail’s Tip: My research has provided confusing results regarding the use of fertilizers with banana trees. The articles and banana suppliers all suggest different fertilizer mixes so at this time I am not making any suggestions as to what fertilizer should be used on these plants.

Please see videos I have included for this plant; a few discuss fertilization.

Disclaimers:

  • As you will see noted throughout this website, this is not a business. It is my back yard hobby. 
  • Periodically I have several of the plants posted here that I must sell off to make room in the greenhouse for different plants and to help off-set the cost of running the greenhouse. I tend to sell the most in August – September as I prepare for the winter months.
  • Any information regarding the care from any of the plants listed here is based on either what has worked for me, what was on the plant’s seed package or what I have learned off of the internet from various sources. My personal experiences and opinions are clearly identified. It is your responsibility to research and determine the care you wish to provide the plant. 
  • When we meet, I encourage you to inspect the plant you are buying carefully before you decide to purchase it as once you walk away with it, the plant is yours; sorry, no returns.
