Hosta help again

ID please

I'd use engineering pricks or those made for paving. Some others are as obelixx says, they can start disintegrating very quickly indeed, one winter. 

Bumble Bees

Do bumble bees live in hives?

There are bees in my garden, I think that's where they need to be. I didn't know you could get bees in packages. Do they come with instructions?

ID help please
