Hosta need a shaded position, but can tolerate dappled light. The more light they receive the better their flowering, however, the lighter and less intense their foliage may be.
Prepare your beds to a depth of 20cm, making sure the soil is light and fluffy. Plant the bulbs with the 'fat' end down at a depth of 6cm. Allow 10cm between each crown, however a less full result can be achieved if you choose to plant further apart.
If growing your Hosta in a pot, select a high quality potting mix that is free draining. Some gravel in the base of the pot will assist with any drainage issues. Ensure the crown is well fed and watered right up until dormancy.
Hosta DO NOT require refrigeration and are happy to naturalise in the ground for many years. Feed your plants with a liquid fertiliser and some aged manure through out their growing season.
Remember - Snails and slugs love Hosta nearly as much as we do. Please use preventative measures to keep the buggers away!
