Please tell me how hosta virus X has affected your garden. I have dug up two hostas planted last year that I think were infected -- they had puckered leaves that shouldn't have been seersuckered and discoloration along the veins. One was a Stiletto bought at Lowe's and the other a So Sweet bought elsewhere. Extension agents in Kansas and Missouri (I am on the border of the two states) report the virus is a definite concern here. Do you think this disease will wipe out all of our hosta gardens? Have you been affected, and how much? I am told the virus is spread mechanically, by tools that tought the sap of the infected plant and brush it on another plant. I sprayed rubbing alcohol on the spade I used to dig up the two.
