I began collecting hosta when we moved, from England, to our new house in Middletown CT in 2001. Got them in a big-box store (5 for $7.99 - so only about 3 varieties) and dug most up up this year (2008) as I realized they all had HVX!!
Began seriously collecting 3 years ago - and some will know I had a buying blitz on eBay in September, due to having nothing to do while nursing a herniated disc! Beautiful plants and nowhere to put them!! Probably have reached 200 varieties (altogether not just in September!) - am hoping I will be able to contain myself next year - but I am not hopeful!
April 2009 - wasn't able to contain myself!! Have decided to buy only from reputable on-line dealers, and perhaps local nurseries. After a lot of thought, decided ebay and big box are just too risky. Also, we need to support the specialist nurseries!

I live in: United States

My zone is: CT Z5/6
