When Is The Best Time To Plant Hostas

in containers?

Hostas are very hardy plants and may survive in harsh environments, but they do prefer to be planted in well-drained raised beds. The best time for planting is spring when the soil temperature has warmed up sufficiently. Hostas can also be planted in fall after temperatures have cooled down, or during dormant season (when the weather is colder than 50 degrees F). Summer tends to dry out soils quickly so it’s not a good time for planting hosta because of watering constraints. Fall will give you cooler temperatures which tend to keep the soil moister longer, but again these are usually hotter days with lower humidity. Your own climate preferences should determine when you plant your hostas outdoors.
