Presented by the Daffodil & Hosta Society of Western Pennsylvania and The Western NY Hosta Society.
23rd Annual Hosta Forum was held Sept 18, 2021
The Roaring 20's
This year, our theme echoed the new decade - think flappers, speakeasies, swing and jazz - Al Capone and Bonnie and Clyde...
Fun was had by all!
OUR SPEAKERS WERE:
Northern Hardy Hydrangeas
Tim has written two books on growing hydrangeas in our climate and he will share varieties and methods to succeed.
From Model T to Roadset
Noah will walk us through the production of hostas from liner to consumer plant… like Ford’s assembly line, the process is fascinating.
John Totten & Linda Kramer
Appalachian Forests; Cultivating Place
Stretching over 2000 miles from Newfoundland to Alabama, the Appalachian Mountain chain is one of the longest, oldest and most botanically diverse on Earth. These botanical riches have been sought after for centuries by plant explorers and including them in your woodland garden can add excitement and a sense of place.
