Hi all, bit of a mystery in my garden. I had about a dozen hostas some in ground and some in pots and they have all disappeared! No sign of anything above ground of any of them. Is it too early? Planning to dig around this afternoon and see if anything remains below the soil. Anyone else had anything similar?
If you want to gently poke around with your finger tip, you might feel the tips of new buds just below the surface,just be careful not to damage those tips.
If you've mulched them, the crown might be slightly lower than you're expecting it to be. I've dug up a crown 6 inches below ground ( over zealous mulching for 2 years ) and it came back.
I had a look the other day - I have one which has little sprouts appearing. I don't really grow them any more because of slugs, but that one is fairly resistant and is in a pot.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
Happy to supply photos if anyone is interested? Just don't want to bore folks.
