Sue Proctor Plants
From classic hostas to new introductions, from miniature hostas to giants, our hosta collection has something for everyone.
Our Nursery in West Yorkshire is devoted to Hostas and in our Website you will find something to appeal to everyone, from the hosta beginner to the serious collector.
Our Catalogue lists over 450 hosta varieties, including old favourites, classics and an exciting range of newer varieties. We grow around 300 of these in our garden, so can give you first-hand information about these varieties.
We particularly specialise in miniature and very small hostas, offering around 100 miniature hostas and 70 very small varieties and cultivars, some rare and hard to find.
Thank you for visiting our Website. Enjoy your hostas!!

Due to the coronavirus restrictions, our NGS Garden and Nursery Open Weekend in July is cancelled, along with all other NGS open gardens.
Visitors will be welcome to collect hostas by appointment. but we would encourage you to wait until the epidemic is well past its peak and the current advice not to make non-essential journeys has been eased. It is safe to plant potted hostas out at any time during the growing season. Please let us have a list of the hostas you would like as soon as you can, so that they can be put on one side.
One or two customers have already asked whether we might resume our mail order service. Unfortunately this is not possible since our current stock is not large enough to sustain the likely demand.
We are sorry to have to announce that we are no longer able to offer a Mail Order service.
This coming season (2020) we will still be welcoming visitors to our Nursery and are happy to reserve hostas for those who are able to collect.
Our 2020 Web Catalogue is now virtually complete apart from some photos. Amongst new additions, subject to good growth, will be Alan Titchmarsh (small number from garden divisions) Blue Shadows, Blue Umbrellas, Crumb Cake (mini), Frozen Margarita, Grand Slam, Hadspen White, Lake Tekapo, Lakeside Beach Bum, Kiwi Blue Baby, Lakeside Coal Miner, Lakeside Doodad, Lakeside Maestro, Lipstick Blonde, Pastures New, Resonance, Silver Shadows, Smiley Face (mini), Snow Flakes, St. John, William Lachman. Many of these varieties are available in very small numbers. Most ‘Sold Out’ hostas from last season have now returned to our Catalogue.
Our Hosta Catalogue
Our Catalogue has several features that make it easy for you to find the hosta(s) you want.
You can search by size (Giant, Miniature etc.), by leaf colour and by frequently requested characteristics, e.g. white flowered hostas, scented hostas, red stemmed, slug resistant and sun-tolerant hostas.
Most varieties listed are accompanied by a photograph to make choosing easy. Clicking the plant’s photo reveals more information on the plant, extra photographs, where available, and the option to add plants to the new shopping cart.
When you submit your order through our Website we receive an email to which we will respond within 48 hours confirming your order. See our Ordering page for more information.
