Gardening Tips : How to Grow Hosta

Yolonda Vanveen from Vanveen Bulbs shows some hosta growing basics. Hostas like shade - but not too much shade. Hostas need water, they do not want to dry out completely. They are a very sturdy plant, and spread well.

Dividing Hostas

A demonstration of dividing hostas in spring from Seabright Gardens. They show at what growth stage you can divide them, and at what stages you want to wait. He digs up the plant and completely washes it off to see the roots. Then he flips it upside down and pulls the roots apart. A lot less stress on the plant than the sharp shovel division that I have done on the past.

To divide or not to divide... A hosta story

From Hostas Direct comes this brief video on the pros and cons of division. The pros are that you will get a number of plants where you once had one. The con is that it may take several years for the plant to recover and have all the characteristics of a mature plant. He shows a division of hosta Sum and Substance, divided a few years previously that does not have the attractive leaf searsuckering which an undivided plant has.

How to Transplant Hostas

From Garden Fork TV comes this informative video showing how to divide hostas. He uses the slice with a sharp shovel technique, which I have used in the past. He takes a few slices from bigger plants to fill in an empty area in a hosta bed. He does cut off some of the leaves after division, because the damaged roots won't be able to support many leaves at first. Plant the division with the root ball slightly below the soil level. Be sure to keep the division well watered after you plant it.

Lastly, a video of a beautiful private hosta garden in Cincinatti, Ohio. Some of the hostas shown are Fire and Ice, Velveteen Taylor, Doubloons, Bright Light, Titanic, Fragrant Blue, Piedmont Gold, Fringe Benefit, Edge of Night (very dark), Love Pat (blue cups), Lady Isabel Barnett (huge leaves), Cherry Berry (small), Blue Angel, Sun Power, Spritzer, Guardian Angel, Inniswood, and Blue Plate Special.
