LP,I never paid $10 for a Hosta,in the beginning friends gave me Hostas that had been split and now I am doing the same,have a lot of splitting to do this spring.
Blackeyed Susans,Shasta Daisies,Hostas etc..
We only buy,Tomato-plants,some Herbs and flowers for my pots,otherwise my garden is pretty well established with Perennials and Perrenials pay for themselves in the long run.
