Hostas in a pot: every spring they return, in the pot! Add geraniums and ivy for a fuller look. Why do I not think of this?

In early spring, when hostas are coming up, mix 10 parts water to 1 part ammonia, and pour over plant and soil. This will kill the 60,000 eggs each slug lays per year - Yuck! When the plants are grown, you can continue to put some of this mix in the ground, or spray directly onto slugs

"Actually I keep mine in the same pots they come in, every other day they get submerged into a 5 gallon bucket filled with 1/2 cup of Epson salts & 3 gallons of regular water until the soil stops bubbling, then they are hung up to drip dry... always have ferns that are dark green, glossy, and 3x3 by September from ferns that start out with 7 fronds in May..."
