  I know someone who did that last summer. He had purchased some hostas
that were divided in Spring of last year. Single crowned plants. Around
mid-August, he Bapped them, and was a little worried about them making
it through winter having used BAP so late in the season.
  Needless to say, they all came through magnificently - some of the
seiboldiana types only gave off one extra crown, some other cultivars of
other species got 5 to 8 new crowns this year. 
  Go for it!
