My favorite place to buy Hosta's has opened for the season ( http://www.masonhollow.com/ ) and that means the 2017 buying season has begun.


What Hosta's are you/have you added to your gardens this year?


Today I bought Hosta 'Ben Vernooij'.

I have purchased the following hosta from Naylor Creek for 2017...

Class Act, Enchiladas, Fred Wilson, Ghost Spirit, Magic Fire, Paradise Sand Storm and Baby Doll.

When they boyz had health problems in 2016 and got behind shipping orders, I told them to just wait until my 2017 order shipped. So, I have another order coming from a year ago! It looks like it's a big order (17 plants) so I'm going to be busy when I get them all.

I've already received Catherine and Firn Line from another source.

I'm focusing more on the Minis this year and have added Gemstone, Holy Mouse Ears, Church Mouse, Mini Skirt, Baby Bunting, and Hideout; I also picked up Red October for its red stems and white backed leaves. I still have hostas to plant from last year that I overwintered in my shed.😳

I bought a very nice plant of Lakeside Paisley Print...5 increases and also a plant of Lakeside Spruce Goose at a local nursery. I saw Dancing Queen being purchased at another local nursery but it was the last one. They may get more next week. I don't have room but struggle to resist anything I feel appealing...... Shrug! Shrug! Shrug!

I found a beautiful full gallon pot of Electrocution. It came home with me. Haven't decided on location yet.

Electrocution, is one I want. I only ordered one hosta Liberty. I have a lot of space but I have a lot of deer so I am sticking with only really want and 10 ft rule. If I cannot tell you the name from 10 ft I will not buy.

Starting to downsize. So far this year, only a new Brunnera and a re-placement 'Patriot' as mine was ailing. And I've parted with several plants. One was a sport from a friend's garden that was going downhill. I gave it about 7 years and it didn't improve. I gave away 'Frances Williams' as my location for it was too dark and too dry and I don't have enough space to devote to a plant that has issues anyway (spring desiccation burn).

Also gave away 'Gold Drop' as it never looked gold, was getting too large and I didn't much like it. Composted 'Summer Snow' and sent 'Peace' out to a plant sale. None of them grew well for me. I'm on a city lot and real estate is too valuable to waste on duds.

Next one to go will likely be 'Blue Ivory'. Most plants in that family do well, but that one just marks time. I've had it over 5 years and still just one or two eyes. I've tried it in several locations.
