My hostas are here and I've never done this
My bargain hostas arrived today, I am in zone 8 and the hostas that I have already leafed out.
These bareroot hostas look the way mine did 6 weeks ago. I've never done this.
Do I just plant them how they are?
Do I water them even though they are obviously dormant?
Can I trim the roots? some have 12 inch or more roots.
Some of them I don't see eyes, or if I do they are tiny but they have a chunk of the [crown?].
My weather is day time high 70s, about to be 80s, and lows in the 60s.
How long can these stay out of the ground/ out of pot?
Do I need to soak them or anything?
Instinct tells me to trim a bit of root, plant them, water once and wait for more prominent eyes. But I don't want to mass kill the lot of them by being wrong.
This order was from gilbert h wild, so anyone who has ordered the bulk hostas from here probably knows what I am looking at.
I can take a photo if needed.
