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!

Our Nursery is now Closed.
Due to the new restrictions on Kirklees households announced by the Government on 30 July we have no option but to close our nursery and garden to visitors with immediate effect. As many of you will know, our Nursery is in our private garden and the Government’s restrictions do not allow us to meet with ‘other households’ in our garden, even with social distancing. Because we are so close to the end of the season for our hosta sales, it is unlikely that we will be re-opening this season.
We apologise to all our customers and hope to see you again next season.

Posted 31 July 2020.
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.
Posted 20 March 2020. Amended 4 May 2020.
We are sorry to have to announce that we are no longer able to offer a Mail Order service.

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.
