I decided to just dig all of them up and replant the area. Well, I think some of them were way too crowded causing them to not grow as well.
I don't have any photos of the massive hosta roots I unearthed because by the time I remembered the camera, I was a mess, the sidewalk was a mess, the whole hosta bed was a mess and I wasn't going into the house to retrieve the camera.
I (with the help of my wonderful husband) separated several individual hosta plants from the masses and replanted them along with some crocus bulbs. Everything got a nice layer of mulch too.
By the way, look how nicely the ornamental sweet potato vine has filled out the bed on the right.
The little green plants are the hostas.
The hostas that I didn't
want need were placed by the trash bin and given away like I did with the two cactus plants.
I saw a young couple pick them up.
