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 the newest 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 120 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
New Mail Orders Suspended
Many apologies to our mail order customers but Richard has suffered a fall and serious ligament/cartilage damage to his wrist.. His right hand is currently unusable and after trying to pack mail orders for a morning it is quite clear that we will not be able to continue until his wrist improves and he is in less pain. This could be up to six weeks.and we already have a four week queue of orders. We will be contacting those who have already placed orders individually.
Our nursery will still be open to visitors who want to collect their hostas in person. Please ring us before visiting.
If you don’t hear from us…
It’s very unusual for us not to answer your emails in 48 hours. If we haven’t replied within this time please email us again, after checking you’ve typed your email address correctly. We regularly receive email enquiries to which we cannot reply since they are returned by our mailer undelivered. A contact phone number in your email would also be useful. Also please check your Junk or Spam folders for a missing reply. Many thanks, Sue and Richard

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.
