: Hi, I hope someone can help me with this. I planted some hostas in the frontyard two months ago and the hostas are still not growing. There are some shoots developing but they remain the same for the past couple of months. Neither are they dying or wilted. I get the morning sun in the front yard and I've also used fertilizer but not regularly. Can someone offer some reasons as to why my hostas are not growing? They are planted in the soil. I have a couple planted in containers with potting soil. Those are not growing either (only developed shoots). The temperament presently ranges from about 43 to 65 deg.

One thing I can think of is the root system. Were they very root bound and if so, did you loosen the roots? They also may just need time to settle in. Give it another week or two and see what happens.
