Welcome Kelly:

A great way to build a hosta collection is to start by using the Hosta
Popularity Pole in THJ . The top 20 are rarely a result of fad or whim .
Most are proven and all of them can be purchased easily. The list changes
very slowly and so you have what has made it to the top over a series of
years. They all make excellent specimens against which to compare newer

The big guys have a good hold and the hosta market and can provide the
latest and often at a reasonable price. It's harder for the small guys
these days, but there are at least 5 or 10 which provide good catalogue
service and can offer the consummer a more personal service than Acme
Hostas Unlimited can.

The Hosta Finder put out by Steve Greene is a god send. I think it's about
$11.00 and tells you where you can find thousands of hostas and what the
average price is. It also has a great list of hosta suppliers with
addresses and phone and e-mail numbers. This resource can be had by
contacting : SHGreene@aol.com, or Stephen Greene, 36 Elaine Road, Sudbury,
MA.  01776

Watch out the t dread disease that comes from looking at the beautiful
glossy photos of hostas that  you MIGHT ORDER this winter.
