My Hosta Farm
Here's what I call my hosta farm. I grew a patch of 3-4 varieties here, and then I can grab one and divide it any time I need to fill in a spot somewhere on the property. Very handy, especially with the price they're charging for just starts.

PL, what a great idea! I think I will do the same. They are such an amenable plant--easy going, easy to plug in here or there. I like the idea of "stockpiling" some, for later use.
Very nice PL! That's a lot of Hostas!
Oh Yes, that is awesome.
The price of hostas over here prohibits me from buying many. What a terrific idea to 'farm' your own!! How do you manage to keep that amount of plants slug free though? They are all so healthy with no damage that I can see on any of the leaves. Mine look like lace they have so many holes in them.
Wow pl nice and green. I've just started hearing of hostas. But now I know what they are. They do look perfect for a filler. :)
I've been lucky, we've never had slugs here.
Great idea! I have some HUGE Hosta's that I occasionally split and re-pot to sell. This gives me $$ to buy new Hosta's! You are right Eileen, new varieties are getting VERY expensive!
