Moving Astilbes and hostas?
Last year we moved a grill and shaded some astilbes in one of our planting beds. They came back this year, but with barely 2 or 3 leaf sets, whereas another one we have with more light looks like a small bush.
If I'm fairly sure they're not going to bloom where they are anyway, is there any good reason to not move them now and give them the chance to recover with better light, rather than let them sit in the dark again and move them in fall when it seems to be recommended?
Same Question for some hostas, only they need to move due to being in a high traffic zone, and are barely up yet, just leaf spikes... If they stay they'll just get shredded again by the dogs.
