    What potting medium do you use?

    just any general  multi-purpose compost on special offer.

    Gorgeous hostas.  How do you stop the slugs?

  • Hostafan1Hostafan1 Posts: 32,360

    encourage blackbirds and frogs and , if you're lucky, hedgehogs. I hardly ever use pellets: only if there is a particularly attacked area.The bottle I have is about 3 years old.

    I've had praying hands for about 4 years, as you can see, it's a bit slow to bulk up, but such a good unusual form.

    They look fabulous. Do all hostas need shade?
