    • Hosta Guacamole is a popular perennial plant that thrives in outdoor gardens in the UK. Here are some care instructions to help you keep your Hosta Guacamole healthy and beautiful:

    • Planting location: Choose a location that receives partial to full shade. Hostas prefer indirect sunlight or dappled shade, especially in the afternoon. Ensure the soil is well-drained and rich in organic matter.

    • Soil preparation: Before planting, amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure to improve its fertility and drainage. Hostas prefer slightly acidic to neutral soil with a pH range of 6.0 to 7.5.

    • Watering: Hostas have moderate water needs. Keep the soil evenly moist, but avoid overwatering, as waterlogged soil can lead to root rot. Water deeply when necessary, especially during dry spells. Mulching around the plants can help retain moisture and suppress weed growth.

    • Fertilization: Apply a balanced slow-release fertilizer or organic compost in early spring when new growth emerges. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates. Avoid excessive use of high-nitrogen fertilizers, as they can promote lush foliage but reduce flower production.

    • Division: Every three to five years, divide overcrowded hosta clumps in early spring or late summer/early fall. Dig up the clump and separate it into smaller sections, making sure each division has healthy roots and foliage. Replant the divisions at the appropriate depth, with the crown at or slightly above the soil surface.
