Thinning Hostas

(Question)

I transplanted hostas, thinking of saving them while renovating another part of the house, for their eventual return to the front garden. They may have overshadowed a mundane six feet tall fence. It’s hard to have the perspective of an experienced gardener.
I’m not certain where to begin thinning since the blooms are growing more quickly than I imagined. I also didn’t realize some water comes from the other side of the fence in addition to my soaker hose.
Can you recommend a link for thinning hostas appropriately?
