I have Hosta sprouts!! I had given up on them Until I read a post by a lady that said no matter when she planted hers they did not sprout until late March to early April. So I thought what have I got to lose! Well I was shocked to see sprouts in the flat Today. I am "SO" glad I waited.
???????? is what do I do now? I know to wait for the second set of true leaves, Do I up pot them or put them into the ground where I want them to grow?

Too early and cold. Mine although all sprouted will keep them in until First week of May,

RE: Sprouts!!

Hosta is easy to grow from seed but they're slow growing. I winter sowed hosta seeds last year and got great germination. They got almost 2" tall before going dormant for the winter. That's too small (in my mind anyway) to plant out since they'll be too easy to forget about and (for me) to step on. I potted them up to gallon size nursery pots and kept them on my shaded breezeway for the summer. I'll decide whether or not to plant them out this year depending on how large they grow. Aren't they the cutest little sprouts?
