Rooting hormone on hostas attacked by voles?

14 years ago

Here were my plantagineas I planned to divide and move around my new garden after they finished blooming....

Notice the left plant - a little dull and wilted... here's what was left when I gently tugged a leaf...

So, out came the shovel and I dug up all of 'em to keep them away from those horrid creatures.... several more had been attacked, but they had more roots than the sad case above. Everybody's in a plastic tub with lots of water until I can get them in the ground.

So, I'll re-plant. My question for you is, would applying rooting hormone like Root Tone help those most badly damaged to develop more roots?

Or, is it just plop them in the ground - high and with lots of water (and crossed fingers), as you've taught us?

Thanks, and death to voles....
