It appears something is eating on all my hostas--several varities and I have over 25 large ones. Some have holes only in middle of leaves others at edges--no discoloration and I cannot see trails by any slugs??  Help--don't want to lose their beauty.

It does sound like Slugs. Go to garden store, Loews, Home Depot and look for slug bait. Follow directions on box. You will be surprise how many dead slugs you will find the next day. They come out to feed at night.  Hope this helps.
Or sprinkle rock sale around your plants, don't sprinkle salt close to the base of the plants themselves, keep at least 6" to 8" away from the base of the plants, if you can. -Birdy
Well lets get them on the run, when the sun starts to go down have ready mix of 1 teasp of liquid hand soap and 1 qt of water in might have to reapply..............and if it rains reapply again.
