Poinsettia and Hosta Sales?

Anybody ever grown hostas from plugs or liners? What kind of success did you get?

2 ends of the spectrum

Hostas are idiot proof
Poinsettias, only an idiot would grow them

4" plugs into gallon cans only need a few weeks.

I always bump gallon perennial leftovers into 3 gallon cans...same time frame, more impact on my install jobs. Do most of the canning when sales slow in August and you can pick up deals.
I like a high percentage bark mix for best drainage.
