Hosta Golden Tiara with its tidy heart-shaped leaves and compact height of just 15″ is one of my favorites in the garden.

Hi there! I'm Vanessa, the Shade Gardener. I live in a tiny little house in Ontario with my 2 grown boys, 2 dogs and a cat, where I do my best to grow plants in a heavily shaded yard and soil like cement. I am passionate about my family, my pets, MCM furniture and cheese. When I'm not in the garden I do a bit of crafting and sewing. Sometimes I build topiary animals from chicken wire for fun.

  1. Hi Vanessa, I’ve always wanted to try planting hostas. For the first time, I have a shaded area. Will they work in sandy soil too, or do they need nutrient rich soil?

    1. The Shade Gardener says:

      Hosta do fine in sandy soil – my mother has crazy gorgeous ones in her very sandy soil. You will need to look for varieties that do well in your area though many need the colder winters to thrive, but I’ve read there are varieties bred for growing further south…
