Hi, I'm Diann and I'm a hopless hosta-holic... I live in Eastern Iowa on approximately 10 acres. Of that I garden on much less. Smiling

Hi Diann -- thanks for setting up the Hosta 'Cubits' ... this is all going to take some getting used to... anyhooo

I"m Terese... I have a postage stamp sized lot in the Itasca, IL ... not a lot of room for hostas ... just the north side of my garage. I also live in an RV Park in Lake Delton, Wisc - where i have all shade and no grass... Much more room for plants up there.

Hi, y'all! I'm Bev. I have had hosta for years and am running out of room. I started some areas in the front yard this past year only to have our new neighbors-deer-chomp them to the ground! Lovely pics...good to see some (old, lol!) names/faces here:))

I'm Molly,

Till spring of 2009 I had over 100 different hostas. My life went bellyup so right now I don't know what I have left. A hosta friend rescued a lot of my hostas and hopefully once the weather breaks she'll mail them to me at my new home in Tn.

Hi Molly, there is nothing worse than having your world in an uproar. I hope things settle down for you and you are able to have some of your rescued hostas back. Smiling

Hi,

I'm Polly. I live in cold upstate NY, where we get an average of 200 inches of snow a year to blanket my hostas. I have around 100 cultivars and hope to add more.

We live on 63 acres, mostly wooded. So I can stick hostas anywhere for a long ways, and will never run out of room. .

I have an online iris nursery, and a small at home nursery, where I see potted hostas among other things.

This looks to be a grat cubit.!

Good luck Ticker!

Hi, my name is Teresa. I live in southcental KY. I collect several types of plants. Mostly daylilies, iris and hosta. I grew up gardening.
Polly,
I totally understand. I take so many shots of my dls that I rarely have a decent pic of hosta to post. I have a collection of 45+ hosta . I am beginning to add mini hosta. now. They are so adorable!

Thanks for starting the hosta forum

I'm going to do a fairy garden for my granddaughter, so mini hostas would be great for that.

Hopefully, maybe, there will be some notice of sales or co-ops for hostas here:)

Teresa, ask Alwaysweeding about the trough she made last spring. Smiling LOL It took two men and a small boy to lift it! LOL

Seriously, though, it was a nice trough.

Hi there, I am a major hosta collector. My favorites are any that get very large. I also, like ones that have different or unusual coloring...similar to the one on Sylvia's post...no matter the size.

At the moment, all I have are duck/bird pictures...WB Nuthatch upside down on limb...watching me take his picture.
