Will hostas and fern come up thru mulch?
I have a row of hostas and fern in a dirt bed which come up reliably every year. Yesterday, I added about 1/2"-1" bark mulch to the bed for the first time. Since the hostas and ferns haven't poked thru the ground yet, I couldn't tell where they were, so I lightly mulched over the entire bed. Will the new growth pop up thru the mulch? If so, do I need to remove the mulch from around the plants?
