Frequently Asked Questions

To plant Blue Mouse Ears Hostas, first select a location with partial to full shade, as they thrive in low-light conditions. Prepare the planting area by loosening the soil and incorporating organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure, to improve drainage and fertility.

Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball of the hosta, and gently place the plant in the hole, ensuring the crown is level with the soil surface. Fill the hole with soil, firming it gently around the roots to eliminate air pockets. Water the plant thoroughly after planting and apply a layer of mulch to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

Dividing Blue Mouse Ears Hostas is a great way to propagate new plants and maintain the health and vigor of your existing plants. The best time to divide hostas is in the early spring or fall when the plants are dormant. To divide the plants, dig around the perimeter of the hosta clump, carefully lifting it out of the ground with a garden fork or spade.

Gently shake off the excess soil and use a sharp, clean knife or spade to cut the clump into smaller sections, each with a healthy root system and a few leaves or buds. Replant the divisions at the same depth as the original plant, spacing them according to their mature size. Water well after planting and continue to provide regular care.

Hostas, including Blue Mouse Ears, contains saponins, which can be toxic to pets, especially dogs and cats if ingested in large quantities. Symptoms of hosta poisoning can include vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and abdominal pain.

While the toxicity level is generally low, it's essential to keep an eye on your pets and prevent them from eating hostas. If you suspect your pet has consumed a hosta plant, contact your veterinarian immediately for advice and treatment.

Blue Mouse Ears Hostas prefer consistently moist soil, which is crucial for their optimal growth and health. During the growing season, water the plants once or twice a week, depending on your local weather conditions and soil type.

Be sure to water deeply, allowing the moisture to reach the root zone. In hot, dry periods, you may need to water more frequently to prevent the soil from drying out. Using mulch around your hostas will help retain soil moisture and keep the root zone cool.
