Gifting hostas...ideas??

megaul(Z5OHIO)August 10, 2007

Hostas are wonderful friendship plants.

It's easy, inexpensive and personal to give a cutting of one of your favorites. I have given them as birthday presents to friends, family and co-workers. I include a plant tag with the hosta name and birthday date such as below. As each birthday rolls around, they will be able to tell how much their hosta has grown in that length of time.

Are there hostas especially suited for birthdays?? I just bought Pineapple Upside Down Cake, and when it gets mature enough to separate, I thought it would make a wonderful birthday present.

What are some of your hosta gift giving ideas?

Marsha--a wonderful idea! I've given H.Patriot to a friend that was having us over for a 4th of July cookout!
I gave it to her potted with a little resin flag stuck in it!

BTW--today is our 39th anniversary--hubby and I!!! :o) I think I should get one for each year--whaddya think??

Megaul,

What a great gift idea! And so nicely done with the bow & all and the tag!

Happy Anniversary, Janice! Should we all email your DH at once with the suggestion to get you 39 new hostas? LOL!

re: 39 hosta---Lol,Char! Maybe not--I'm thinking I'm REALLY going to have trouble planting that many right now!!
I knew it had to come--saturation, and it's fast approaching that point in my garden!!!

And, thank you for the congratulations!!! It's been a good and fun 39!
