Hi
I've just ordered a number of young hosta plants. My garden is all monoblock or gravel, and I'm hoping to have a special wooden planter made for the hostas. Could anyone advise me on what sort of depth it should be?
Many thanks, Katrine

Hi, Katrine,
I suppose it all depends on how many you want to put in the planter and the mature size of the varieties you want to plant. Small ones would probably do well with 30cm deep, maybe a little more. The most important thing to have it good drainage.

Hi Kathy
Thanks for replying. I'll have to go and rethink things now:(
The plan I was working from was a three tier design, each being 12 cm deep. But I guess there is no point going ahead with that if it won't support the plants needs.
Thanks again.
Katrine
