From classic hostas to new introductions, from miniature hostas to giants, our hosta collection has something for everyone.
Our Nursery in West Yorkshire is devoted to Hostas and in our Website you will find something to appeal to everyone, from the hosta beginner to the serious collector.
Our Catalogue lists over 300 hosta varieties, including old favourites, classics and an exciting range of the very newest varieties, some available only from ourselves.
We particularly specialise in miniature and very small hostas, offering around 150 varieties and cultivars, some rare and hard to find.
To simplify ordering, our hostas are all listed again on our Order Page.
Most varieties listed are accompanied by a photograph to make choosing easy.
We sell through Shows, by mail order and, by arrangement, to personal visitors to our Nursery.
Our ‘Bits and Pieces’ page contains occasional articles and anything else we think you might like to see. You can comment or add to these through the Page.
Thank you for visiting our Website. Enjoy your hostas!!
