Hostas are useful for planting in shady areas and it is their leaves that attract the greatest attention. These leaves illuminate even the most dreary of corners and provide interest right through from spring to autumn. That said the tolerance of sunlight for hostas does vary. Generally the lighter the foliage the more sun a hosta prefers however hostas rarely do well in full sun.

 

Hostas are really easy to grow and generally prefer moist, fertile soil that is well-drained. Once established these plants will thrive in any soil. Hostas can also be grown in containers although they will need repotting when the pots become congested. Autumn through to mid-spring is the best time to divide hostas.

 

Slugs are the main threat to hostas causing unsightly holes in their leaves, however scattering coffee grounds or sand around the plant may deter them.
