The Best Time Of Year To Divide Hostas In Your Garden
The best time of year to divide hostas in your garden is spring or early fall, with each season offering unique benefits.
In spring, division should ideally occur when the eyes of the hostas are emerging. This is because splitting them when they’re small requires less effort and minimizes
leaf damage.
If you choose to divide hostas in the fall and take advantage of the season’s coolness, it's recommended to do so early in the season when the plants require minimal water.
While dividing hostas in the summer is possible, it requires thorough watering to mitigate the shock of transplantation.
