Hostas Direct is up and running, taking 20% off for spring orders. Free shipping if over 75. till Feb. 19.
http://www.hostasdirect.com/
Country Boy Gardens is taking 20-70 % off spring orders till Feb.29--I saw a 2-year Gold Standard for 1.80, you should see my shopping cart!
http://www.countryboygardens.com/

Last year I bought about 30 hostas from each of these companies, Hosta direct has bigger plants and biger prices but worth it, every penny!

Country Boys has small 2 or 3 year plants for about the same price you would pay for liners! That is why I did not do much business with the coops. I was very happy with Country Boys for small plants that anyone can afford.

Thumb of 2012-01-22/virginiarose/408871 Country Boys- Average price 2.50

Thumb of 2012-01-22/virginiarose/ccc421 Hostas Direct- Average price of these hostas was 14.50.

Shannon, I love your one dog. The tri-color. I have a Austrian Sheppard with similar colors but with the blue eyes. Are those hard to keep with the long hair?

Shannon, I love country boys, I bought about thirty from them last year plus I got some liners from a coop. I was happier with the country boys hostas, at the end of the summer I was getting two year hostas for the same price as the liners. I am getting ready to put in another order for a few which I could not afford big but have been wanting for a while. One was Catheral Windows Lovey dubby I had so many baby hostas last year I started a nursery , which is just a raised bed in almost full shade. I keep forgetting about them, they are getting bigger by the month and soon I will need to find a place for them. Confused
Thumb of 2012-01-25/virginiarose/940222-This is the nursery bed.

My sister sends me Maxine emails. Love them. I was told that the writer is a man. If so he's really in touch with his famine side, or the only man who knows a little about women.
