Propagate Hostas Without Breaking Your Back!
1. A nice clump of Hosta.
2. Shovel that is cleaned and sanitized. I recommend this due to Hosta Virus X a disease that affects and spreads among Hosta. (I recommend you read about HVX at this link: http://www.inthecountrygardenandgifts.com/articles/hosta_virus_x.php)
3. Something to plant your eyes in.
Here are the steps:
1. Find a clump of Hosta you want to propagate, I chose this one:

I live in N Texas and my Hostas look great for 9 months out of the year. When it gets cold, they lose their leaves and go completely dormant. My are in a shade garden under trees. They receive a little dappled sunlight.

I have one large leafed hosta in its own pot, and I think I paid a little extra for it. Don’t know why I haven’t done this before now! I like to use a sharp bread knife when I’m dividing plants. I guess it gives me more control. And, I found out, hosta leaves will last in a cut flower bouquet for about a week, if you need filler.
