Re: Q &A for THJ


Hi Glen
Happy New Year to you.
The questions I get asked the most are "When is the best time to split a
Hosta?" &  "What is the best method for splitting a) a plant in the ground
b) a plant in a pot." Oh yes and "Should I split my hosta now ...... it is
at least 3 years old"
Any good?
Tim over the pond
