Sunburnt Hostas

With the temperatures beginning to dip lower and a hint of fall in the air, I decided it was time to relocate my sunburnt hosta plants. Susie Williams (our gardening information source) you may remember from an article in the spring, gave us permission to move our plants around. I say “permission” because I think that is what I needed–someone to say, “it’s okay, you can do this”! In fact, she described it as being like rearranging furniture in your home, which probably explains why I never thought of it…I don’t rearrange my furniture either!

This poor hosta plant had frizzled and fried all summer so I decided to move it into a shadier part of the garden. I also remembered she mentioned dividing perennials so I split up that hosta into three parts to replant. It didn’t divide easily, but the shovel convinced it in the end.

A good watering and hopefully next year I will have some healthier hostas!
