    Hi,

    I've just received an email offer of cheap Hostas which I've replied to and bought a pack of ten for £10 plus £4.95 P&P which as a novice gardener looks like a good bargain to me. Delivery end of January.

    Kind regards, Colin.

    I've bought Hostas like these in the past. It will take a few years for them to grow as large as the ones in the pictures on that website. Seems like a good price.

    Have done the same years ago, and very pleased. I used them in a huge rhododendron circle area so they are not a "featured" hosta, there were I believe 12 of them, they were a mix, and look lovely today. But for my front foundation and other places that need accented I do pick certain types, heights, widths, colors, textures, and shapes.

    That's a bargain. I don't have the moisture needed for most hostas and I have tons of slugs ..
