The perfect place for the development of a hosta is one with plenty of shade, in fact, the darkest places of the garden can rejoice with the planting of these specimens. They also like being at the water's edge or in a pot on the balcony or patio.
Another advantage of the hosta is that it requires little care: just enough water and a little compost occasionally. It is even easy to reproduce by dividing the clumps.
Of course, we must remember that hostas are also very attractive to slugs, which become a real problem. You can fix it by putting a layer of sharp pebbles, egg shells or pine sprigs on top of its substrate.
As for the climate, we must say that the hostas are resistant to frost but, contrary to what is sometimes thought, its leaves wither it does in winter.
A final tip: If you have decided to purchase a hosta, make no mistake with the size of the plant. Once planted outdoors, leaves can double in size in a short time
