Thanks to you all for responding. I know that I could divide the plant
, and give some of it away... I probably should have done that when I moved it a couple of weeks ago. I don't really want it in my flowerbed any more - I have two others as well - and it was taking up space that I want now for some other perennials that (hopefully!) will provide a shot of colour next year. I could move it to my front flowerbed, but it's full-sun practically all day long and I don't think a hosta would do well there. Even sun-loving perennials had a difficult time there this past summer. I know I read about this 'store in garage over winter' business somewhere...I recall someone saying they'd done that successfully, but they may have been in a different gardening zone
that I am. I've been reading a lot of stuff re gardening over the past few months, and now I can't recall where these 'tidbits' came from. Regarding lack of light in the garage...would it be that much of a problem when the plant
is dormant over the winter? Does that much light penetrate through snow cover, etc. during the winter months? (I don't know - I'm just wondering out loud at this point).
