Dividing a hosta
I'm coming up on my repotting time of the year, which is usually late February or early March. I have a really old hosta that has been mistreated any/every possible way. I've had it for about 15/20 years. It originally came from Sam's in the box from Holland. It has no label, as I've forgotten or it was mislabeled and I've been unable to identify it. It's a blue hosta that is very similar in color to Blue Angel, but smaller leaves. It's in about a 20 gallon pot and has in excess of 100 pips each year. I want to divide it. I would think that making it 4 plants would be a good choice. Do you just take a machete and whack it into 1/4's? I sent a section of my blue angel to A&M last year and it did not come apart easily, so I don't expect this one to do any better at separating.
