Has anyone grown hostas from seeds? I would like to give it a try. I collected seeds and am trying but they seem to be taking too long to germinate. Any help would be appreciated.

Hostas

are so easy to separate right now while they are coming up. Just dig them out and replant where ever you want them. They will fill in and you will never know you dug some out.

Thanks,

I have what I think is a Hosta of some kind,

in the flower bed, I might see if I can try that with it. It is from a plant I bought on a markdown table at the local nursery several years ago, no tag, I can't remember if it is an actual Hosta or a plant similar to a Hosta.

But, speaking of dividing, when I dug up what I thought was one bushy Sumac bush, I got a surprise of that it was three of them, so with the other one I wanted to transplant, I had four!

I put a Gooseberry in where the Sumacs were, and put in one each of four varieties of Currant bushes! :) So for the year so far I've planted 16 trees and bushes, 100 and some to go! :D

Slugs...

When I tried to grow Hostas last year, the slugs almost destroyed them! I am trying to find a good slug repellent and I came across this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMssG-66oTE&feature=youtu.be. It's hilarious! I completely forgot my slug problem for a minute. But, I'd love to hear any suggestions for this year!
