I'm new to the world of hostas. Is it natural for the leaves to die off in the winter? Do I cut off the dead leaves at the base to make room for new growth? Do they need any special treatments? Is it ok to cut off the blossem stems after they bloom?

Hostas are indestructable. I dug them up and threw them on a pile when I put on a room addition. They sat on that pile all winter long. The next spring I replanted them and they all lived. Cut back all of the spent leaves and flower stems as they will reproduce again. They do not do well in the sun. Around mid summer they have a tendency to burn out.
