Hi charleyD

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

 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.

Best time to buy hostas and other plants?
