Frances Williams Hostas - Destined for Backyard - March 2021
Last year, I added five Guacamole hostas to our backyard - three larger ones, two smaller ones. In two different spots. The plan that we're working from calls for Guacamole hostas in a couple of different spots including in what I've called "Priority Area #2" for 2021 - this woodland garden section. Here's a look at part of that section that highlights the hostas. Green = what I planted last year. Yellow = what is remaining.
So, this gets me two more and up to eight. What to do with the last one? Knowing that not all of these may make it, I could simply over-plant one of these sections with the extra hosta. Or, I can add it to the hosta section I've made under the Oak tree. Or just pop it on the north side of the house/screened porch knowing I'll just leave it alone for a while. Or add it to the ones I transplanted under the espalier Lindens last season?
The package recommends 36" distance between plantings - which is always a challenge for me as a gardener. I pack things way too close together. But, will take the note and try to remember as I plant in the coming days/weeks.
