My sister in-law gave me some Royal Standard Hosta that she dug up out of her garden two weeks ago. They have been sitting on their patio with not much water. Is their any chance that they will survive? I live in Minneapolis by the way.

If you go ahead and water them thoroughly now they should be ok. Of course, the plant is getting ready to go into dormancy for winter and will require little watering during that time. Hopefully by mid to late spring, the hosta (which is quite hardy) will begin to emerge and regular watering can be resumed.
