Re: june --->English hosta nurseries

<< How would I get information on England nurseries growing Hosta? I have
found none
 on the internet. Are there any problems getting them into the country through
 customs? I think it would be quite interesting to know what is happening in
 Europe concerning Hosta.

There are only a few specialist hosta nurseries here in England. The two that
I know definatley ship to the states are Goldbrook Plants(Sandra Bond) and Ann
& Roger Bowden. Both have extensive lists and sell good quality plants, a few
of which you will find hard to find in the US. 

When sending hostas to overseas customers, the nurseries have to wash the
roots completely clean of soil and have the plants inspected by a dept of
agriculture representative, who will then issue a phytosainitary certificate.
This same procedure is in place for US nurseries sending plants overseas. The
cost of the inspection is usually added to the cost of the order, I believe at
present it is around 25.00.
