Honeybells' is a huge hosta that is perfect for adding height to foliage displays. It has large, oval, light green leaves which turn yellowish-green in a sunny position. This are complemented in mid-summer by lightly fragrant, bell-shaped white flowers which are streaked with lavender. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM) which is for plants of outstanding excellence. Hostas benefit from plenty of organic matter being added to the soil before planting. They also enjoy being mulched in spring and autumn to help retain moisture in the soil. For the lushest displays, feed with a balanced fertiliser between March and June. Do not feed after this period or you will encourage the sort of sappy growth that slugs adore! To avoid the leaves looking like a piece of lace, take measures against slugs and snails, such as beer traps.
