You can never have too many hostas – they’re great in shady spots and borders.

They’re easy to propagate by division in spring and even late winter, just as they’re starting into growth. One large clump can be divided into several new plants by splitting it into smaller sections. Potted up and grown on in a sheltered spot or cold frame, these new plants will be ready to plant out later this year.
