Should I pot up hostas or baby heuchies?

I can amend the soil in my Brooklyn friend's yard further, where we laboriously cut out a 9" trench from clay-y soil in which to plant hostas & baby heuchies, but I am worried about the competition. Not the World Cup, but holly roots vs. hostas & baby heuchies. The new plants are planted around the dripline of there-forever holly bushes.

Should I

(1) Remove the hostas and/or baby heuchies and put them in black nursery pots until they get bigger & more able to compete with holly roots? And then put the pots on top of the trench?

(2) Put the hostas and/or baby heuchies in spinout bags?

(3) Tear out my hair and put on sackcloth if they do not successfully compete?
