I've been watering them once daily. Not a considerable amount, but enough that I feel it's soaking into the roots. Daily seem okay as long as I don't "flood" them?

Yes, watering daily would be okay, as long as you don't flood them. Windy March days can dry them out fast.
Your doing fine Michelle.

Looks like all of the hostas are "growing" and even one of the daylilies. I was worried since I wasn't able to plant them until a couple days after they were removed from the ground by the previous owner. Great to see!

we have hostas that when we fist bought our house i hated. they looked awful , so at the end of growing season i mowed them down. they came up the following year looking 100% better. so now every year i cut them down to the ground so they look better for the next year.

Good to know! I can't wait to see them come in bigger next year and really fill in the space. A few of my students are Boy Scouts and suckered me into buying some plants from them. Those should come in this month and I'll have to figure out a plan for those.
