What's happening to our hostas?

10 years ago

These hostas are located on the north side of a detached garage. Leaves have some small holes and are increasingly yellowing/browning. Soil is moist as evidenced by some moss in the area. Plants seemed fine at the start of the season, this condition has appeared and steadily worsened over the last month. What is happening to them?

Moved into the home (Northern Illinois) about a year ago - do not have history on the plants themselves, fertilizers used, etc. Over the last year, I have used Scott's fertilizer treatment on the lawn, trying to take care not to broadcast treatments on to the hosta leaves. Same with an aggressive treatment of lawn violets using Ortho Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover and Oxalis Killer. No fertilizer/treatment to the hostas over the last 12 months.
