What month is best to plant hostas?
The best time of year to plant hostas is in early spring or early fall (as soon as summer heat breaks), and before the rainy season if your area has one. Hosta varieties come in different sizes. To determine the right spacing in the garden, check the plant tag.
When should I buy hostas?
Buy hostas as dormant, bare-root divisions or potted plants and plant them in the spring or in the fall. Hostas can be planted during the summer growing season, but will need extra attention (mostly watering) to ensure that they do not succumb to the heat of summer.
Where is the best place to plant a hosta?
Plant hostas in evenly moist, humus-rich soil in light to full shade. Hostas are tough, versatile, and adaptable. Filtered sun is best for the colorful varieties to reach their full potential, especially gold and blue forms. The green-leaved varieties are the most shade tolerant.
How late can you plant hostas?
Plant hosta from early spring to late summer, up to 30 days before the first frost in fall. Be sure to give the plants a wide berth — 1 to 3 feet in between plants. Hosta prefer well-drained soil that is slightly acidic; be sure to work plenty of organic matter into the bed.

Do hostas need full sun?
