This class is presented by Carole MacMullan, a North Fulton Master Gardener. No shade garden should be without a hosta. Hostas have been the mainstay of shade gardens for at least one hundred years. Even though their flowers are insignificant, the appeal is the diversity of their leaves. The leaves of hosta, thanks to hybridizers, come in a variety of sizes, colors as well as textures. Learn how to plant, care for, fertilize, and prevent eradication from hosta enemy number one - deer.
