I'm gearing up for gardening season. Never thought I'd hear myself say that, but it's true!
My Mum has always had hostas in her garden — brass ring, guardian angel, elephant ear — you name it, she's got it. So it's only natural that I've started researching the species for my own garden. And here's interesting facts that I've found:
- According to Plan and Plant, hostas are one of the best plant species for beginner gardeners (yes!)
- Hostas are available in more than 50 varieties
- These plants LOVE shade
Positive factor: Hostas don't require a lot of work, which is a bonus, because when it comes to being a green thumb, I'm a fan of low maintenance plants. Negative factor (at least for me): Hostas thrive in well-shaded areas, which I don't have a whole lot of in my garden (at this point). That being said, I'm going to give this species a try (I'll keep you posted on which varieties), and we'll see how things go.
I've been posting photos of hostas and garden layouts I love on my Pinterest, so check it out to see some of the ways I'm being inspired!
