The Georgia Hosta Society’s 30th Annual Hosta Show is scheduled for Saturday, May 11, 2019. The location will be the Fellowship Hall of the First Baptist Church of Tucker, 2367 Main Street, Tucker, Georgia. We plan to accept entries on the Friday afternoon before the show. And we're planning a wonderful plant sale in conjunction with the show. You'll have the opportunity acquire hosta plants from premier vendors.
Tips on selecting and preparing entries for the show are discussed in the most recent issue of The Hosta Journal (Volume 49, Number 1) by prodigious ribbon winner Randy Goodwin of Zionsville , Indiana. The article, entitled “Advice to Achieve Blue or Best of Show,” appears on page 65. Check it out.
Note to GHS Members: A full color photo essay on the 2018 show will be in the September issue of Georgia Hosta Notes.
