: I've purchased some hosta roots. Can I start them indoor in pots and keep them through the winter? I figured that way they would have more months to grow instead of going dormant outside in the winter. I will then transplant them outside next spring. Please tell me if this is a good way to do it. Thank you.
I see you posted this in July. I hope you planted them out side. They die to the ground in winter and are the one of the first up in the spring. I think they need the cold. Cover with leaves for winter. Not to heavy. Don't remove the leaves in the spring. Just loosen them up a little bit as they start to come up. They love the leaves.
