You an Butch may consider yourselves unique, but I find most gardeners
want fairly instant success.  That is fine.  I want the same thing.  I
expect to get that whan I buy a "new" hosta!  Any issues surrounding
time questions, however are best addressed to those introducing new
plants.  There are plenty to chose from ) both hostas and other's) and
the question is are they all they can be?  That will eventually be
resolved by the buyer, but I think it is unethical for any plant that
has not been grown to reasonable maturity, ( with hostas that is not
less than 4 years and usually more)to be offered to the general public. 
That definatly includes placing them in TC as that simply promotes the
problem.  No one needs a plant badly enough to be "stuck" with an
plant they have paid their good money for.
I'm sticken to my guns "test your new plants throughly before selling
