Found about one dozen little baby hosta growing around a variegated specimen. they're doing fine, and none are bigger than 3/4" at this point. my question is this: 3 to 4 months down the road, when things start to get cold and the mature hostas are done blooming and have faded, should i mulch them for the winter, or leave them as i leave all my other hosta - naked and unprotected for the winter?
it's very exciting as i've never had hosta self-seed, so any and all suggestions would be very appreciated :-)
thanks, viola :-) we've been to ottawa, the year that the beautiful museum of glass walls opened, and featured the 7 (or eight) famous canadian painters. beautiful city and lovely people. i think we're in zone 8 (i think) here in nj and i can't wait to see what happens next spring!
Parismom, I'm in zone 5b and my seedlings overwintered well in the ground last winter. I have been meaning to move them as they now have at least 3 to 4 leaves. I've delayed doing so because of the extreme heat. If I leave the transplanting too long, I may encounter winter heaving but you being in zone 8, I assume, will not have that problem.
