Question: 310-5201
Can I split my hostas now? Fred, Raynham, MA

Mort's Answer:
You could wait until after the first frost. It is easier on hostas, if you wait until spring. Right now, they are still taking energy from the sun down to the roots. In the spring the roots will be sending energy up to the top. Whenever you do divide them, dig them up entirely and lay them on their side and slice the roots like you are cleaving meat. Good four inch chunks will suffice.
