Exposed hosta pips
Hello! I haven't been here in a while; it has been a long cold winter! Now that the snow has finally melted off my hosta garden (we had 12 inches of new snow just last Saturday) I am finding that some of the hostas I planted last year have pips that are higher than the soil. The pips are hairy - I am not sure if those are roots? And some do have roots that are barely below the surface.
The garden was put in new last year, so I guess the soil has sunken a little? My question is; should I dig up the plants that are too high and plant them lower; or would it be better to leave them undisturbed and put a layer of new soil over them? The area is just starting to thaw out now; it is the north side of the house and isn't getting much direct sun right now. Temps overnight are still in the 30's here so I still have some time to move them while they are dormant if that is what I need to do, but I want to make sure I am doing the right thing.
Thanks in advance for any help....
