Moving large hosta

I have several large clumps, 4-5 + ft across, that I want to move in one
piece, i.e., without dividing.  Will be moved via a trailer.  This exercise
would me so much easier re handling etc, if  I were  to completely cut off all
leaves before digging.  Is there any problem here re: potential harm to the
plant?  I have this idea in my mind that this years foliage is necessary this
year for next years energy storage.

Re: over wintering in pots. If I group pots 3-4" apart, and fill between the
pots and even slightly over the pot with mulch, can I expect them to get thru
a zone 4A winter. Any other suggestions?

Thanks  Phil .
