From the AHS -
Don't you just love this time of year? Hostas are
poking up all over the place, unfurling their leaves signaling the
fact that spring has finally arrived! The days are getting warmer
and longer allowing us to spend more time outside enjoying the
pleasure of nature. I always wonder just how much bigger my favorite
hostas are going to be this year compared to last year.
This May edition of the AHS eNewsletter features on the cover the Green Bay gift plant, H. 'Golden Harmony' which is absolutely gorgeous! Glenn Herold shares with us some great information on Hosta longissima. Warren Pollock reminds us to watch for Slugs and Foliar Nematodes and to document what we do. He also shares with us a great article on "Blue Hostas: Why are they blue? How to care for them" and also alerts us to the sad news of the closing of Wade & Gatton Nurseries. Larry Tucker challenges us to "Dare to be different in your hosta garden" sharing with us some great ideas! The featured local society is the East Tennessee Hosta Society, they have a lot of things going on there! Clyde Crockett reviews another great hosta book for our home library. The featured member from the Board of Directors is Elaine Cole, AHS Treasurer. What beautiful landscaping she has! We'll see the return of the AHGA Vender in July.
