Well I don't have many Hostas, and even less of them very far out of the ground, but this one is coming up OK 🪴 #hostachallenge2022 #hosta #hosta-firstfrost #plantainlily #plantainlily-firstfrost #firstfrost

Great looking foliage. Mine are just starting to poke out of the ground. The sun and warmth this week should help. 💚💛💚

I bought a first frost last year and I think something ate it it just completely disappeared. What eats hostas besides slugs? 🤔 at least with yours I'll know what it might have looked like.. 😆

@sieveheadsarah I’ve never found vine weevils to be a problem on hostas, plenty of other things 😞

You’re lucky Joan, all mine are in pots and I can guarantee I’ll find the grubs feasting on the roots, I check them every March, such a pain, but I do get less slugs and snails having them in pots 👍🏼😀 @joanboston

I'm not sure that was it Sarah, there's 5 others in the same area and not one other was touched. Maybe it just wasn't happy and packed up and moved out of town!

Cataloguing Hosta 'First Frost' and #itotallyblameange for putting the idea of going to Morrisons today 😄 Not somewhere I normally shop 🤭🙄 These were on 2 for £3 #hosta #hosta-firstfrost #plantainlily #plantainlily-firstfrost #firstfrost #ol-pot @anges

Thanks Jane 💚💛 They always have a range of Perennials in at 2 for £3 but they have several Hostas in with it now, never paid much attention before, usually ignore Hostas 🐌 @pelly

Ooooh look, Dave, here’s another contender in next week’s challenge 😳👍 @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co

Don't blame me!! 😆 That's a great buy, I didn't notice any Hostas in Morrisons. They didn't have any Perennial Cornflowers either so I bought absolutely nothing! 🤣

It does seem to be very random, this isn't a big gardening area (not many houses have outside space) yet the store here is rammed with plants, and they've opened a garden centre outside too!! @anges

The Southport store has a little garden centre outside which was well stocked but not with Cornflowers!

The challenge is to post one Hosta photo a day from 17th to 23rd May. It’s just for fun and to showcase all our lovely Hostas. There will be a post by @ukgardentags in the morning to remind everyone of the challenge. 👍😘
