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 In…

New additions to stock not yet listed in our Catalogue: H. Grand Slam £8.00 (similar to H. Candy Dish); H. Kiwi Blue Baby  £9.00, (Small intense blue),  H. Lake Tekapo  £12.00; (Aqua centre, cream border), H. Lipstick Blonde £12.00 (Bright yellow with red petioles). 

Giant Hostas

Please note that some of our giant hostas are now growing too tall to post. Because of the time consuming nature of packing and our huge backlog of orders we will only be posting Empress Wu, Jurassic Park and T. Rex at the end of the season when the leaves are dying down. These are marked in our Catalogue. 

Thank you for being patient!

An unprecedented increase in the number and size of mail orders* together with a badly damaged wrist (Richard) and unexpected family ill-health (hospital visits, childcare) have meant some customers have had to wait a few weeks for their hostas to be posted. Many apologies and thanks to everyone for being so patient.  Unless the volume of orders subsides over the next week or two we may have no option but to cease accepting new orders.


* Our website has crashed twice recently because of the volume of traffic. 

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



Hosta Highlights

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.
