Transplanting Hostas

HostaIt’s spring and those hosta shoots are rapidly emerging and unfurling. If you find that an established hosta is struggling to thrive, feel free to dig it up and transplant it. This is best done in the spring as the shoots are emerging, or in fall as the leaves are dying back. But truth be told, I’ve transplanted sizable hostas in the middle of summer on a cool day with great success, as long as I’ve kept them well watered and they spent minimal time with exposed roots. My rule… if a hosta’s not happy, move it. It will thank you in the long run.
