Many thanks for all your replies - very interesting points made and advice given - will dish out more mulch, food etc.and talk to them! In response to a comment about what people grow with hostas - mine are under Japanese Acers, a camellia and Wiegela. Similar to Dovefromabove I also have pulmonarias, Solomans Seal, ferns plus ajugas, saxifraga fortunei wikth huge white plume and Red Ruby with red foliage and deep pink flowers. Also an evegreen (shade required) Sisyrinchium with lovely violet flowers. Also got five epimediums - almost forgot 5 Heucharas flowering well. The bed that they are all in is very small, dappled to deep shade and with very sandy soil!! PS The Hosta leaves are really beautifiul!
