This is a beautiful cluster of Hostas growing next to the house in the shade and needing very little attention. I brought them from our other home and they have adapted very well. The Hostas that I dug up and divided today were already here and they seem a bit slower with starting to grow, but once they do …They are Huge!! These were also next to the house, so before they got into their whole cycle of growing, I decided to divide them.
You can see the cluster and all the roots … a mangle all grown together. They did come apart rather easily though and I potted them up in individual pots, adding some soil and giving them a good drink of water.
We have contacted the Farmer’s Market person and they are having a few meetings right now and will be changing up the way the market is run. So we will keep informed and hopefully be able to participate when they have it all worked out. Hoping these Hostas will be growing well and we will be able to sell them at the market. I ordered a shipment of little pots (800) which should arrive here this Friday and was contemplating digging up a few Sedum plants and potting up for sale also.
This is Lily of the Valley that just sprouted up and is well on its way to filling in an area also near the house. These I brought from the other home also and I adore how dainty and pretty they are. They will expand and keep growing new sprouts each year. Another plant that does well in the shade.
Today was 80 degrees and this is very unheard of here for the end of March. I have been going nuts like a crazy person planting all kinds of seeds this week….mostly indoors in pots. I knew I would have to adjust to the difference in climate at this new location, but I think I am being thrown a curve with this whole weather situation this year. I wish I would have started seeds indoors sooner to be honest, but Ya live and learn and I have a whole lot more to Learn!
