I'm trying to get to grips with my hostas, in order to get the best out of them.
It all started with Hosta Stained Glass - I realised that although it was growing very happily in its pot, grouped in the shady corner of the terrace with the other hostas, its lovely markings were much less pronounced than when I first had it.
I looked it up and apparently it likes more sun than most, but not hot afternoon sun, just morning sun - fussy or what? So now H. Stained Glass has been moved to the south-east facing corner of the terrace and we await improvement.
But what of the other hostas - would some of them do better in the sun than in the shade?
And to help me when purchasing more hostas (which may happen any day now) is there a 'rule of thumb' as to which hostas like shade, which like sun, and which like some sun, but ........... not a lot
