In this post, I am sharing how I have successfully dig and move perennial hostas in my home garden. You will find images, videos, and tips for multiplying you’re perennial quickly.
Its always good to have the right tools on hand when doing a plant dig. You want to get as deep as you can to get all the roots out of the ground without disturbing them. These plants are SUPER EASY to dig because they are like weeds! The hosta plant doesn’t mind being dug up most anytime of the year. The biggest issue will be keeping the plant happy so the roots can get established if this is a dry season move.
The Drive Home
Every time we load up the Audi with plants I still can’t believe all the great times my husband and I have had bringing plants home. Today we have bags loaded with clay soil hosta plants and few extras. It has been a dry spring to summer so this will be a great story to share about how amazing hosta plants are to dig and move. Below is a photo I took of myself pretty excited about the hostas in the back. I have been looking for a host with white in the foliage that can take the heat and sun. These were growing back along the field in FULL SUN with little to no water.
I can’t believe I did a dig with my white shirt on. No worries because my brother actually did the shovel work and I took a lot of the soil off of the roots so my plant knees got dirty from being on the ground. NOTE TO SELF: Bring knee pads when doing a dig!
How I Transplant Hosta Plants Video
When I got the plants we dug up home I divided them and repotted them in containers for the summer. These new babies will be planted this Autumn in the landscape strategically with tulips. Hostas make a great cover for the tulips as they die back in the late spring. Check out the video below featuring what I did.
