Big or tiny, Hosta are a favorite shade plant for many gardeners. They are mostly grown for their many variations of foliage, but many gardeners enjoy the flowers as well (some are even fragrant!). The program discussion will include variety selection, site selection, planting, nutrition, pest and disease management, and when and how to divide them.

Join the Union County Extension Master Gardeners for a presentation from Nils Nordstrand, owner of North State Hosta. Nils  started growing Hosta over 14 years ago as a hobby  and as his hobby grew, he learned where to find them and how to grow them, and now he sells them. He is well known in the Southern Piedmont of North Carolina for his knowledge of Hosta. He will talk a little Hosta history, variety selection, planting, and  will answer questions related to common pests such as slugs and voles.

Please join us for this free program on June 1, at 7pm.
