Cutting Hostas


Nard Allen added on June 30, 2017 | Answered

While we were on vacation we had snails that shredded the leaves on a couple of our hosta plants. Can I cut them to the ground and will they re grow?

I would treat for slugs then remove the damaged leaves from the plant.
Though most Hosta will recover from being cut back, it is best to let them die down naturally.
