Where IS that thread????

funnthsun z7A - Southern VAJanuary 26, 2014

Can anyone direct me to the thread a few years back (it's probably been mentioned several times) of what the different levels of hosta addiction--uh, dedication--, are and the description of each? I remember reading it several times, they laid out a description of each person at each level, the first being you only think there are two kinds, solid green or green and white, on up to the hybridizers and their description. Anyone help me? I have searched google with every keyword I can think and still can't find it. Thanks so much!

Babka, that's a good one!
There is another article somewhere which gives titles to hostaholics based on the number of cultivars they own. Bernd

I know this probably isn't it, but worth the read while I search.

Babka, thanks I haven't read that 1 yet. going to go look at it fully now but first glance tells me that's not the one I was looking for. looks interesting, though.

Mocc, you're thinking about the one that I'm looking for, yes. its more based on how many you have. It's driving me crazy that I can't find it!

Smith, Thanks for searching! The one you linked to is a great one, well worth bringing up again. I read through that one while I was searching as well. so true!

I went into the search site and typed in "10 signs your a hostaholic" but it won't let me bump it up. Not sure what I did wrong but maybe someone else knows how to bring this up on site. Great to read again for some of us that thought we were not really hooked

Found it, finally! It's the Seven Levels of Hosta Gardening. I'm reposting it for everyone.

They are all interesting. I never saw the 12 Step hosta addiction article before, and I read it to my DH. He thinks it is very accurate for some reason....but he doesn't know the whole truth yet. The less he knows the better, IMHO.
