: My hosta is growning well but the leaves are full of holes! What do I need to do?

You probably have slugs. Put cheap beer in plastic margarine type tubs about half full. The slugs crawl in and drown. Change every two days.

There are hostas that are more slug resistant. They are the thicker leaved ones and the ones that are puckered.
