grow it yourself

Hosta are one of the easiest perennials to grow in your garden. But to keep them healthy it a good idea to divide them every few years. When a plant starts getting too big the roots can become tangled and unhealthy.
Use a pitchfork or shovel and dig up the clump of hosta once it breaks ground in the Spring.
I use a sharp knife to cut the clump into sections. I cut this clump into 2 sections.
Dig a hole wider and deeper than the clump you are going to plant. Pop your Hosta in the hole and backfill it with the soil.
Hosta are hardy and will continue to grow and get larger. Just remember to divide them again in a few years!
