I enjoy my Hostas,but can’t do yard work, and the snails,slugs beat me to taking care of them. Would they do ok in the house ,at least in summer? With windows open?

    Hi Bernice,
    Yes! Hostas can be grown indoors, but they still need to go through a dormant period where they are chilled. Click on the link below for how to care for indoor hostas. Wishing you the best.

      Hahaha Bernice. Your last comment made me chuckle. I know exactly how you feel. Even though I answer questions here, sometimes I'll ask a question and when someone posts a link, I'll think: "Duh, why didn't YOU google it." You are not alone. Good luck with your hostas!

    They would probably love it inside. It's one of those plants that you can plant just about anywhere, except in the direct hot hot sun and they will grow. I have several in plastic pots that I put at the foot of my front steps and they come back every year.

      Yes,thank you,I have had them for years in Washington,but here they do not seem to look happy. I had about 10 varieties in Washington here so far about 3. But lilies...they LOVE it here! Thanks..😽

    Well, in all honesty I have never heard of indoor Hostas, but, I guess it would work.
