What happened here  was that I dug bigger holes (to everlasting indignities
to my back, right foot and right shoulder) through the tree roots, filled
the holes with compost, replanted the hostas, and now, two years later have
even worse tree-root problems. If I had thought, I would have lined the
sides of the holes with plastic.
