From classic hostas to new introductions, from miniature hostas to giants, our hosta collection has something for everyone.
Our Garden 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 350 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!
Sue and Richard
Since our hostas are dying down, our Nursery and Garden are now closed until next season, except for pre-arranged collections. We hope to see customers new and old next year.

Next season (2022) promises to be an exciting one. A quick count shows we will be adding over 50 varieties new or returning to our Catalogue. These will include Alligator Alley, Angel Feathers, Arc de Triomphe, Bulletproof, Cameo (mini), Clifford’s Forest Fire, Cranberry Wine, Diamond Lake, Flemish Sky, Fried Bananas, Frosted Raspberry, Glad Rags, Goldbrook Glimmer, Heart’s Content, Kiwi Spearmint, Lakeside Banana Bay, Let’s Twist Again, Mango Tango, Mighty Mouse (mini), Moon Split, Obi Wan Kenobi, Prairie Sky, Purple Haze, Riptide, Something Different, Sorbet, Stag’s Leap, Twisted Spearmint, Valley’s Glacier, Velvet Moon, Wu-La-La and Zeus. Many varieties marked ‘SOLD OUT’ this season will also be returning, including minis: Church Mouse, Cracker Crumbs, Holy Mouse Ears, Mini Skirt, School Mouse, Smiling Mouse and War Paint.
We will be open to visitors as soon as most of our hostas are in leaf – probably mid-April to early May. Just email us (hostas @sueproctorplants.co.uk) or ring us on 07917 006636 or 078171320 to fix a day and time for your visit. Like last year we are keeping our nursery Covid secure by keeping our customers apart. If you are coming from some distance we will try to allocate you a 1.5-2 hour time slot to allow for late arrival and give time for a wander round our garden with a cuppa. If you are looking for specific varieties please let us know so that we can make sure they are there for you. If you just want to browse our stock that’s fine.
Some customers have 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.

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.
