This thread reminds me of another question I have about hostas. I have
a bed of hostas on my property line. About two weeks ago, my neighbor
replaced his privacy fence and in the process of applying preservative
to the new wood, some over-spray drifted onto the leaves of my hosta
plants. I think he used some kind of oil-based stain on his fence,
although I'm not sure exactly what it was.
So far, the leaves look ok, although they are obviously spotted with
the preservative. Does anyone know if this will cause any permanent
damage to the plants? It seems to me that hostas may put up only one
set of leaves per season, so I doubt that any new leaves will appear.
Thanks for any info you might have.
