can i get more for my buck?

MatthebruteApril 7, 2012

I just bought a pack of 3 hosta roots and I was curious if there is any way i can divide one of the bigger ones into multiple palnts. i read they reproduce from Rhizomes but not sude how to take cuttings and such. i have the roots available as i havent planted one yet (already planted other 2)

would be nice if i could get 3-4 out of this last root or even more if its possible.

It will be possible to get several plants from that root system in a few years, after it's had time to multiply. Each root system has only one crown and you have to have one crown for each plant.
