Our 1986 Catalog
We began growing hostas in 1979 when we opened our first
garden center, The Crownsville Nursery. In 1984 we mailed
our first perennial catalog.

Saturday and Sunday, June 7 and 8

All of our hostas are grown and shipped in containers. We do not
sell roots in a bag or tissue culture babies.
Our standard size plants are grown in 3" to 4½" (quart)
containers, depending on the variety. We also offer some varieties in a smaller size, which we
call HalfPints. These are single-eye plants, grown in 3" pots and
are generally 40-60% less expensive. You can find more information
sorry, but we are unable to ship plants to AK, AZ,
CA, HI, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, UT, WA, WY or outside the U.S.
Plants shipped to these states
must be shipped bare-root (by State law except for AK and HI). We
ship all plants in pots, and the time and expense involved in bare-rooting make it impractical. We
are sorry, but we are unable to comply with these requirements and we
cannot ship to these states.
We send occasional emails containing growing tips and
announcing major additions to our catalog and special sales

A warning to casual Hosta users:
Many of us, when we first started using Hostas, thought we could stop
whenever we wanted. What begins as casual experimentation can quickly
develop into a serious addiction. If you find that you actually want to
know the differences between ‘Inniswood’ and ‘Paul’s Glory’, if you tell
your spouse that you paid less than you really did for a new
introduction, but brag to other gardeners that you paid more, or if you
no longer care what your spouse thinks, you need help.
Help is available from Bridgewood Gardens, a nursery that specializes
in caring for gardeners afflicted with Hostas.
We built and maintain the site ourselves, and since we change it frequently,
and since we don't always know what we are doing, you may occasionally find
something that doesn't work. If you find a broken link or something that
doesn't work, please let us know and we'll see if we can fix
We don't share the information you give us with anybody, period.
