Dig up the hostas and replant them. They are pretty darned rugged. And in a year or two they will fill out again. Are you going to have the hostas around an empty space if you kill the stump?

It's worth a try. Fire is not an option in our area.

ZombieGirl, Winds has a pretty good option there. dig them up, replant them elsewhere temporarily, remove the stump, then if you want them back in the same place replant them again.

Get the largest caliber firearm you own and shoot the heck out of that stump.
