Growing & Maintenance Tips for Hosta Shadowland® 'Gigantosaurus'

Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils. High-filtered or dappled sunlight is necessary for clean, healthy growth. Morning sun is tolerable and will help to intensify the leaf colors. Hostas should be mulched with a layer of finely shredded organic material to prevent heaving in the winter. Applying a slug bait in early spring when new shoots are beginning to emerge will help to reduce the slug population. Be sure to clean all hosta foliage out of the garden in early winter after the plants have gone dormant. By doing so, you will be ridding the area of the eggs of slugs and other leaf-eating insects.
