Hostas, Burning Bush
My mother has hostas that are very old and very big. I have received mixed advice whether I can pull them out of her yard this time of year. Some say wait until the fall and some say they are extremely hardy and it's okay to do now. Also, I don't want to take the whole plant-I want to leave part of each plant for her. Is is really quite as simple as pushing a spade down the middle? I appreciate your advice.
Also, I have received mixed advice as to whether I can cut back my burning bush. I don't care if it doesn't turn red this fall. They are now banned in New England so I would be upset if I killed it by cutting it back now.
