Answer: Hostas will grow best in cool, moist shade gardens. With a little extra care (lots of organic matter worked into the soil, and lots of mulch over the top of the soil), hostas will grow into large clumps.
Hostas grow from pips which should be planted just below the surface of the soil. Plant as soon as the rooted pips are available in nurseries, or if you're getting starts from someone else's garden, the plants can be divided and transplanted in early spring.
