Answer: Hostas are good candidates for container growing, so your idea should work just fine as long as you can keep them well watered during the heat of the summer. You will need to protect their roots from freezing over the winter, however. You can do this best by planting them in the ground in the fall, then dig them up and repot them in the spring. This also provides an opportunity to renew the soil in the baskets and to divide the plants if they have overgrown their containers.
