Please help identify infected Hosta!

Postby MVPMOM » Apr 25, 2017 4:43 pm

Hi! I had a long post and don't know what happened! :???:
Does my Gold Standard hosta have Hvx?
What about my Sum and Substance hosta?

Sum and Substance for certain has HVX. I don't really see anything on your Gold Standard, but keep an eye on your garden.

If your Sum and Substance is close to other plants then wait to the fall to dig it up and pitch it. I nothing else could be cut by digging now then get rid of it, and either don't plant something else in that spot or get out all of the dirt possible and refill with new soil. You don't want to leave any root debris there or a new hosta in its spot could catch HVX too.

Clean your tools by scrubbing them clean - I like foaming lysol and disinfecting wipes for cleaning off tools - and always clean after cutting, weeding, digging... Wash your hands and gloves too.

Good luck.
