    In the spring, when they first began to sprout. If they are in clay, it might be good to do it on a day where it's been raining or perhaps soak the soil with a garden hose. Then you can cut them out with a sharp spade or a sharp kitchen butcher knife.

    Happy gardening! 💐💐💐

    Thank you Susie Lee. Are you saying it's too late to do it now? They have just started to sprout.

    I agree with Susie. Although we have been able to dig up and transplant hostas anytime during their growing season in our yard.
