      How to move hostas... this gardener recommends tying & taping the plant with rope & masking tape. Then after plant is dug up, drop it back into the hole 2 times to remove big clumps of dirt; then watering it in it's new hole and THEN backfilling with dirt & watering AGAIN. I will have to try this.

    Cut the bottom off a plastic pot to contain invasive plants bury in the ground. I have been doing this for a few years works great for containing plants that tend to spread, but that I still want to plant in the garden. This also works good for planting a plant in an area that tends to get filled with roots etc. from other plants. I will use a larger pot so that the plant can spread it's roots and grow deeper roots, but keeps other tree roots from choking out the one I planted.

    Boxwood is very easy to propagate. In the spring, take stem cuttings, 6 inches in length, and remove the lower inch of leaves. For best effect, group five to seven stems together, as pictured, to resemble an entire plant. Plunge this group into soil that has been amended with copious quantities of peat moss or leaf mold. Pack the soil firmly around the stems. Keep the cuttings moist, and you will have new, rooted plants in about six weeks.
