Hi charleyD

bear root hosta just unpacked note pink colour at the top thats were the new bit will grow.

http://s3.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/39894.jpg?width=350

 

 the other hostas i got were Blue Hawaii, june, titanic,winter snow and minuteman.as  the hostas are just roots i diged a hole big to take the roots faned out flat and back filled with top soil mixed with compost watered and thats done.if dry for a few days eg no rain i then give water just dont let them dry out.

hope this helps.

PS in the pick there is 5 maybe 6 plants when you order your hostas remember you will only get one single bit but trust us on here they will grow fast.
