Re: Hosta Growth

Well now I am REALLY BUMMED out...  After all the hostas I planted last year
and hoping that they will get much HUGE'R this year - now I find out that I
have been planting them all  wrong.....

It useda be that I  would plant my potted plants (hostas included) with as
little disruption as possible to the roots, thinking they would do better if
they were left intact.  Now I find that you should "straighten out'" that root
mass and even cut the roots with a knife to encourage growth..

Am I EVER going to get to the point where my hostas will amount to anything ?
Should I dig them up and work the roots over?    You know, if I had hands like
Jason had in Halloween ...Hmmm
