When should I split or move my hostas?

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

Question by endo: When should I split or move my hostas?
Do you do it in the fall or wait until spring?
Thanks JK. I think I could kill just about any plant though. If they make it through the move they must be really tough.. I think Ill try to move them this weekend.

Answer by JK
You can’t kill those things–do it whenever you want to. We’ve split hostas in the spring and the summer, and we threw a few in a milk crate in the garage, and they still kept growing. They’re amazing.
Have fun! 🙂

What is causing my hostas to break off?

Monday, December 24th, 2012

Question by poopsie: What is causing my hostas to break off?
I thought it might be cutworms so I used some cutworm granules around the base of each plant. That didn’t work so I sprayed with insect spray and that didn’t work. The cut is usually about 2 inches up from the base of the plant.
I did put some beer out and left it there for 2 weeks, nothing. When they are cut, there is no evidence that either end of the hosta is eaten. The leaves are just laying there cut. Why would bees be attracted to hostas?
