Where to buy a lot of hostas now

lynn_in_mn(Zone 4)June 29, 2010

We want to fill in a large area with hostas, but can't afford to spend the $6 - $12 per pot at Linders or Gertens. We need about 20 hostas, with lots of variety.

Where can we buy hostas at a low cost at this time of the summer?

Hi Lynn. Maybe at a farmer's market. $6 is a very reasonable cost to begin with. But I have seen and bought hostas for less at farmer's markets. You can also try places like Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes and other big box stores, but you run a much higer risk of purchasing diseased hostas there (Hosta Virus X, in particular).

Lynn, You really should check out the hosta forum. They have lots of ideas and pictures. Lots of wonderful advice. I wouldn't necessarily recommend walmart, home depot, menards etc for the very reason of HVX.
