I've been browsing the posts for about a week now and noticed that many of you leave your hostas in pots around the garden. I'm very new to gardening so if this is an obvious thing to do, then please excuse this post. Is there a reason to not plant them in the ground? I've just ordered a few hostas from hostadirect and am wondering if I should be doing that as well vs planting them. I'm trying to landscape a wooded bike trail and also start a collection.
