Re: Greetings To Jose From Central Indiana

Hi Clyde!

I'm afraid I'm not such a good writer (at least in English! :-)) as to write
an article about hostas in Spain... You'll have to wait. HA HA!!!
In my part of the world hostas are very rarely available at nurseries or
garden centers, and when they are, they're always unnamed green or-rarely-
variegated plants brought from the mass producers in Holland.
Most of my hostas come from Britain. Bowden Nursery is my fav place,
although some came via Holden Clough Nursery.
JUNE is a hostas I love, as it is SUN AND SUBSTANCE. ON STAGE and PATRIOT
both I tried last year, so I don't know. In blue I like DEVON BLUE and LOVE
PAT. In 'strange' I suppose I like KABITAN. There are more...
My hostas must learn to fend for themselves; I only water when strictly
necessary. I do not enjoy hosta flowers very much; I tend to cut them out as
soon as I see the flower scapes to appear. Am I doing something wrong?

Happy Hosta Growing!
