Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire Di­vide hostas

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

The hosta looks an im­pos­si­ble thing to di­vide, but, in fact, it’s easy. Now is the hour. Re­move a plant bod­ily from the ground and de­cide how much you want. A ma­ture plant can read­ily spare a por­tion. With a big knife or a spade, slice neatly through the crown to the base, en­sur­ing you have some pointy crowns and their roots. It seems crude, but it works. Re­turn the stock plant to its home with a bit of titi­vat­ing and re­plant the di­vi­sion in its in­tended lo­ca­tion. Both will grow away with­out a care and you will be vindi­cated.
