Question by Cyndy Rohde: Keep the dog from laying on my hostas?
I am on the farm and the dog has free run of the place. He has alot of options to stay cool, as there is a stream less than 100 yds from the house which he goes to often,also a building with a damp, cool dirt floor.

Question by : will cats kill voles in the garden?
I am having a big problem with voles in my perrenial garden. they are eating my hostas and heucheras and other plants. i don’t want to have to put out poison or set traps all the time. i’m wondering if several cats (maybe barn cats or semi-feral cats) would keep them killed out. i need help quick or my whole garden will be gone.

Answer by Freedom
Yes they eat Mums as well as many other garden favourites. Human hair will keep them away. The best place to get it is your hair dressing salon. Ask them to save some for you.

How and when do you divide and replant hostas?

Question by Tracy: How and when do you divide and replant hostas?

Read answers:

Answer by foolsewing1
Hostas are really reziliant and really can be replanted and split anytime. But the rule of thumb is in the spring. You dig up the root ball carefully to get it all and then literally tear it apart in sections and replant. If you can not replant them all in one day leave them in a small amount of water overnight in a safe place and you will be good to go for the next day.
Digging them up is the hard part, you have to dig around in a good size circle with a pitch fork and you will have success and more Hostas!!!
