Hosta Leaves Turning Brown at the Edges

Anonymous added on August 6, 2017 | Answered

What is causing this? We moved the plants which were getting an hour of late afternoon sun, to a shady spot under a scotch pine in the same garden. They are getting plenty of water. The leaves are still turning brown around the edges. No sign of slug holes on the leaves.

Was this a recent transplant move? Your plants will need some additional watering the first few months until they become established or during dry spells. Also, make sure the soil is well draining. If the plants are in soggy soil, they could suffer root rot. Your plants could still be suffering some transplant shock or adjustment period to new light conditions too.

In the spring, you can give your plants a slow release fertilizer application to help them.
