Re: Hungarian National Hosta Collection
You're not the only one who got the request. I guess I'm just cynical,
but I get so many requests for free plants for good causes that... well,
I guess I'm just cynical.
I got this letter in the
mail yesterday from a person in Hungary asking for
some help in furthering
the cause of Hosta in Hungary. I cannot verify to the
authenticity of what he
states as I no longer receive any AHS publications ie
Membership Directory. However,
I am still compelled to help further the cause
of Hostas so I am asking
anyone who may be able to help out please do so.
Attached below is the letter
I received and am passing it on.
I'm a landscape designer
from the northeast of Hungary. My hobby is
collecting hostas of different
kinds. But unfortunately this is very
difficult because only a
few kind of hostas are known in this country.
Most hostas of my collection
are from the Netherlands, England and even some
beautiful hostas are given
for me by German hosta lovers.
My hosta collection is registered
by the Hungarian Agricultural Institute.
Since my collection is unique
here in Hungary, therefore, the Institute has
declared mine to be the
"Hungarian National Hosta Collection".
I'm also a member of the
American Hosta Society two years ago and I also
receive the Hosta Journal.
I see many beautiful hosta in these magazines
which were created by U.S.
I decided to turn to the
American hostas hybridisers for help. If you can, I
would like to ask you, please
send me some buds if those hostas.
I would also be grateful
for some colored catalogs from which I could get
known better this group
Thanks for your help in
