Lynne's notes:

I'm a self-confessed hosta-aholic. I can't get enough of them and like ones' children it's difficult to pick a favourite. This is one variety that I love. I've found it quick to increase and I love the irregular white edging to the leaves. My plant made a lovely specimen in no time at all which is always gratifying.

Delivery Options

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. Postage and packing charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.
