Divide Hostas using two forks placed back to back”.

Other tools required, arms the length of an octopus – preferably belonging to someone else.

Sharp tool – edging half moon, pruning saw, stanley knife, which ever is close to hand.

  1. Karen, Love the hosta photo! You know, I could use the strong man to help when stones get stuck in the tines of my digging fork! We can’t grow hosta here…too dry, but we do grow lovely rocks. gail

    Hi Gail – we grow lovely rocks too – It is a real nuisance when stones get stuck between the tines of a fork!

  3. I gave up with Hostas years ago as they were eaten so badly by slugs and snails. I ended up with leaves like netting! I must say yours look very healthy.

    Hi Easygardener – I always think this is when Hostas look their best.
    If you look closely at the middle of the picture – there is a small slug – I didn’t notice it until I downloaded the pictures from the camera! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. It keep looking into this photo and around it – it’s absorbing.


    Lucy – I am glad you like it – I rather like the worms eye view of Hostas.
