What I Was Told About Great Expectations
Recently I visited my favorite hosta grower - Chris Potze Perennials in Waterford, Ontario. He has 2 spectacular Great Expectations. I told him that I have tried 3 times to grow that plant and each time they have died. I told him that I have heard many same stories from the hosta forum peeps too. I asked him why does he have 2 beauties? His response was that Great Expectations cannot be grown from tissue culture. The 2 mature ones he has growing in his gardens are from divisions. He purchased an order of TC Great Expectations to sell and they died on him too. So he does not recommend buying GE unless you can acquire a division. I thought I would share his insight with all those that have the GE frustrations.
