Question by Patty H: I just dug some hosta’s from the yard next door and wondered the best planting spot?
I have abouy 6 of them.Some are small and some of the larger ones seperated when they were dug but seem to be fine. What kind of light do they take and how far apart do I plant them?

Answer by Henry H
They don’t like full sun, 3or4ft apart should be good you can plant something with color and small in between will look good Good Luck

    they do well in most conditions plant 18 to 24 inches apart

    Hosta are shade plants. Spacing will depend on the variety, some grow larger than others.

    Hostas like shade and do very well under trees and such. The larger plants that came apart are new starts- lucky you! You want to gently tease them apart and plant them separately, As hostas grow and multiply, they tend to crowd a bit so you have to dig them up and divide them from time to time, so separating them now well let you delay this process a bit and maximize their growth in the meantime. I’d plant them in a grid pattern about 8 to 10 inches apart depending on how large the leaves become. I’d also plant impatiens in between them to create a fuller and colorful bed that will look great for most of the summer. You may want to add impatiens for the next couple of years until the hostas fill in completely. Good luck!
