Fertilizing hosta

2 months ago

My hosta were really set back by the stifling heat and low humidity last summer. I think Squash Casserole is the only one that doesn't appear to be smaller than before. I'd like to get them in good shape early in the season, as El Nino might not finish with us before mid-summer.

A while ago (probably years ago), there was a discussion on how often to fertilize potted hosta. It was quoting Solberg and someone else. If I remember correctly, the professionals said 1/2 strength water soluble fertilizer every 2 1/2 weeks.

Does that seem accurate to you?
