Georgia Hosta Society

bringing enthusiasts together since 1984

Meetings

What's the best thing about our meetings? They're wonderful occasions for getting to know and to talk hostas with some of Georgia's most enthusiastic and knowledgeable hosta folks. You won't find a richer storehouse of experience with the almost mind-boggling diversity of the universe of hosta varieties. And if you're looking for talks by genuine gurus, our meetings have them. These experts are eager to pass along practical tips not just on growing hostas, but on choosing and nurturing companion plants that perform well in the shade garden. You'd probably like to have some idea in advance of how a typical meeting goes. Voila! Click here for a quick description.

Special Event

HOSTA VENDORS’ DAY

Saturday, May 8, 2021

The Georgia Hosta Society holds an annual Plant Sale and Leaf Show each May.  But due to the COVID restrictions, all in-person events have been canceled, including our annual Plant Sale and Leaf Show (2020 and 2021).

In lieu of the Plant Sale and Leaf Show, we will be having HOSTA VENDORS’ DAY on Saturday, May 8, 2021, to recognize four of our local hosta growers.  These vendors will be open that day and will have hundreds of hosta plants, including dozens of varieties, ranging from mini to giant, green to blue to cream-colored, solid to striped, solid to ruffled.

I’d suggest that you go to hostalibrary.com and find the varieties that you would like to buy.  Also, go to the vendors’ websites and make a list of varieties that each vendor carries so you can zoom in on the ones you want to buy when you get there.  If you’re not able to visit on Hosta Vendors’ Day, contact the vendors and go another day or get shipping information. 

All the hosta vendors are available other days and hours, either by set hours or by appointment.  But on May 8 we plan to open ESPECIALLY for Hosta Vendors’ Day from 9-2.  Feel free to visit 1, 2, 3, or all 4 vendors.
