Divide and Conquer

 

One of our gardeners had a rather crowded Hosta ‘Blue Mouse Ears’.  So, a couple of weeks ago, here’s what happened:

1   Yes, a bit crowded…

2  No sign of vine weevil, at least.  Good root systems here…

3   Plants for free!

Good job well done, there.  Even better, it’s pretty much not stopped raining since that clump was split up, which will help the divisions settle in to their new circumstances.

    1. Yes, it should. There was an exchange of emails about it. But it seems to have worked well, perhaps partly due to the autumnally cold and wet weather we’ve had since then! I have one of the offspring, and it looks extremely well… I must admit, I do encourage students to go for it when needs must, once they understand the factors involved.
