Love Hostas, but especially so when they first emerge. Any Hosta-holics out there...?

I love them, start with one last year and add three more this year, and they are lovely traps for snails 😏

@lamaisonbleueoleron @inlove @katgreen I grow mine in pots with grit around. It does help lots, but not completely fool-proof. Blue Hostas more slug resistant too. 🐌🐌🐌
