Oak Ridges Moraine. We specialize in Hostas.
property consists of a softwood/hardwood forest, which is an ideal
setting for growing Hostas.
hostas and shade perennials, but we do carry some sun loving
focus is Hostas, and shady gardens and hard to grow areas.
visit with us, and tour our Hosta gardens through the woods, see our
hostas displayed in different situations, which will give you
alternative ideas for your own Hosta garden!
started planting hostas around 20 years ago, not a lot, just a few,
Paul's Glory, Krossa Regal and Shade Fanfare. We
either picked these particular ones because of their name or their
colour, and how they looked in regards to our existing gardens.
You are welcome to come on our property and view the hosta iles at
your own risk.
Then we decided
it would be time to have an actual Hosta garden, so over the years we
bought different hostas. Then in 2000, my husband suggested we
raise Golden Retrievers when our dog, MacIntosh passed away.
My suggestion was, why don't we raise Hostas instead, thinking it
would be a lot less effort on our part. So low and behold
we now have more than 700 varieties of Hostas. 55 varieties of
daylilies, and 50 varieties of perennials.
We are now very
hooked, we have visited several gardens, nurseries, shows,
picnics, etc. Anything to do with hostas. Our passion now is
hostas and shade perennials.
Everyone we have
come in contact with in our Hosta effort has been very enthusiastic
and willing to share their expertise with us. We must say now we
are so much wiser about shade gardens than we were 30 years ago.
