Does anyone have experience or info with chop and drop using hostas? I'm not seeing a whole lot in my searches.
For anyone who has hostas, you know how fast they spread! Since our property has many patches, I want to use them for something useful. Chop and drop was the first thing that came to mind since it has such nice, big leaves. Any other ideas or insight?
Thank you! Have a great day, permies! :)

Nice article Maruf! I will just add to it that you can also harvest the leaves individually just after they unfurl, but before they start getting tough. I snap them off, rough chop them into large pieces and boil them. I find they make a great cooking green. Heck, I'm going to go pick up a bunch right now :)
