Hi I have just brought a lovely Hosta, but have noticed a couple of holes in the leaves like something might be eating it, I have checked all the leaves but cannot see anything on them, is there some sort of spray that I can use. Many thanks
I think you need something to deter slugs. They love hostas and will happily dispose of one in a very short time.
Its nearly always slugs.....especially with hostas.
usually works although keeping in pots works best for me.
The only one that has no slugs or snails on sits on a stand high off the ground.
i placed it there to get a different aspect on the plant..
The best way I have found is to plant in a large pot with copper tape up near the rim. The shadier and damper the situation the greater the snail problem!
