Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Hosta 'Minuteman' is among the most popular varieties of plantain lily. Its substantial, variegated leaves and rapid rate of growth make the plant well deserving of its RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM). This attractive Hosta's foliage is complemented by pretty, lilac flowers in midsummer, which can grow up to 55cm (1'10") tall. Once established, this hardy perennial will form attractive clumps to provide fantastic ground cover throughout the season. Height: 55cm (1'10"); Spread: 1m (3'3").

Culinary information: The best part to use is the hoston, the rolled up leaf as it emerges in the spring. Cooking depends on the size of the hostons, small ones can be fried for a few minutes, going well in stir fries. Thicker ones are better boiled and used as a vegetable.

In autumn, remove old foliage and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Lift and divide Hosta plants in autumn every third year to maintain their vigour.
When growing Hostas, choose a position in partial or dappled shade on fertile, moist, well drained soil. Add plenty of well rotted manure to improve heavy clay or light sandy soils. Alternatively plant Hostas in patio containers in soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.
