I moved a year and a half ago and have 99 % of my hosta
still in pots. I overwinter them in the pots and bury the pots up to the
rim in sawdust. I didn't lose any in our zone 5 winter that we had last
year. We usually have only zone 6 but had an extremely cold winter last
year. They are still in pots because we are in the process of building
another house and I don't want to have to dig and move them twice. Hope to
have them all in the ground next spring. I feed mine Osmocote and do not water
them at all during the winter. I do water during dry spells in the fall
but after it turns cold they get no extra water.

Am starting to think everything should be in pots???
Possibly not for the winter, but for the growing season and then
POSSIBLY pot and all planted in the ground for the winter
