View Full Version : Hosta Help?!?!?!

I have this area below that the homeowner wants all hosta planted. The diameter is 20 ft in one area but 15 in another. How many hosta do you think I can get in there? Thank You!

For that area, I'd say one for every 2ft sq. To make it look real nice, mulch and edge it.

Do I see reminiscence of day-lilies in the first picture? Depending on the hostas, some can have circumferences of four feet. Expect 4-8 years to maturity. The problem I foresee is tree roots in competition. Generous organic media will help to establish hostas. Unsure how you will be able to mix (till) with tree roots.
