Four New Hostas, Awful Drought, and a Well

16 years ago

60% off was all I needed to make 4 new hostas follow me home. No rain for weeks, I have a well and am trying desperately to keep my newly composted & seeded yard damp. So there's a real problem with water. Ground is bone dry, so putting these guys in the ground would be like putting them in a sandbox.

For the winter, should I keep them in their nursery pots close to my stone wall (southern exposure) and water well, or put them in the ground pot and all in hopes of keeping the water near the roots? Blue Angel, Inniswood, Paul's Glory & Thunderbolt - all pretty big - 24ish inches across. (Too impatient to wait for little ones to grow at this point in life!)

What do you think - in pot southern exposure, in pot in garage, in pot under trees, in pot in ground? Thanks.
