Re: anybody planting out there?/what's blooming

Hello Auralie,
I am afraid I would be not help to you if I lived next door... I am not a hosta nut, nor would I make a good speaker on the subject. My knowledge is does not have the depth. I have Hosta in my garden and I like them, but do not want to overdo the subject in my garden. We do not sell hosta in our nursery in spite of being shade specialists. Too many others doing a great job. Now, I do get tempted to carry the dwarfs and minis every once in a while, just so I could order a bunch to play with. JoAn is developing an interest in the minis for her troughs she makes. We did purchase 4 new minis at the Host College over the weekend. Also several conifers with great winter color, and a Japanese maple for a container. Weather turned out cold an clear in Ohio, so we make good time home. 4 1/2 hour drive time plus lunch and pit stops.

Get home safely, Gene.
Boy, I wish you were near us.  I'm trying to find a speaker on
Hosta for my Horticulture School in May.  There is an active
Western New York Hosta Society, and an Upstate NY Hosta
Society, but nothing near us.  Since we are such a small
operation, we can't offer enough money to have speakers
come from a distance.
We're having a gentle snowfall that so far hasn't amounted
to much but is promised to continue today and turn into
icy precipitation tonight, up to a foot.  I've had about enough
of this nasty weather.  Furthermore, colder weather is
predicted for next week - back down into the teens.
