Growing Hostas from Seed and Watching for SportsGrowing Hostas from Seed and Watching for Sports
By Paul2032, January 8, 2013

Growing your own hosta plants from seed can be a fun winter project. All you need is the seed, some soil for seedlings and a little patience. In the summer you can watch for sports on your mature plants.

If I were forced to choose 5 favorite Hostas, I know Liberty would be one of those. It is a beautiful Hosta. Very photogenic as you can see from the pictures in the database. It is attractive as a young plant and absolutely spectacular when mature. Moderate growth rate. It is one of the first to emerge in the spring in my garden. If you grow Hostas and don't have it, I would highly recommend it.
