Gardening Is Not My Thing
August 9, 2017 5:58am CST
The Hosta plants aren’t looking very good. The grass seed I planted in the front yard in a bare spot is not filling the whole thing in. A gardener I am most definitely not. I’ve been told by several people that the hosta plants will bounce back. Now we just need to get some more grass seed to try to fill in the bare spots again.

If you're having trouble with the grass seed, have you considered just going and buying a roll of sod? That might be a less frustrating experience and get the job done. As for the hosta plants, they take very little to no maintenance except when they need to be thinned out, so they will take root and be fine. You'll probably really enjoy them next year.

Hosta plants grow like crazy here for some reason. Everything is green and growing, but not because of anything we do here! If it does not happen by itself (except for growing plants for food) it is not going to happen on our land.

Check the general dollar store. I bought a $3.00 bag of grass seed there and tossed on my sisters yard after they grated the dirt flat and now she has a nice grass filled yard. I dont know what kind it is but who cares, its grass . Hostas just need water, they will take off.

Am not good with gardening either, I just found out i am supposed to put water in the bamboo plant in the bathroom. My sister told me and watered it for me! I forget to water all plants! Even with indoor plants. I tend not to notice them! My sister has to come with her neighbor to clean my yard of leftover plants from my mom yet over a year ago.

Some people have green thumbs and some have brown. It seems that your thumb is a little on the brown side. Don't worry gardening isn't for everyone. You have to love to garden in order to be a good gardener. I love plants and gardening so I can normally make them grow.
