Hosta Breakfasts

1st Saturday every month until spring 2020. 

2020: Jan 4th, Feb 1st, March 7th, April 4th

For more than 5 years now the WNYHS has held Hosta Breakfasts on the first Saturday of each month throughout the winter. They have proven to be a wonderful way of meeting our hosta friends during the non-growing season.


Our location is fairly central, the place is hospitable (even to a group as loud and as strange as us), the food is cheap and the people amazing. We usually have between 16 and 20 folks and the biggest turn out so far has been 25. The Forest View is located a little north of French Road in Depew, next to the Tops Market.  There is ample parking. 

All Hosta Breakfasts* - 10 am
We have held these breakfasts for more than 4 years!

Location: THE FORESTVIEW RESTAURANT 4781 Transit Road - Depew, NY 14043 656-8760

For the newer folks.... this is strictly a social get together.  Come early for best positioning at the table.  Just a chance to get together between hosta things and enjoy each other's company.  Breakfast is "Dutch Treat".  It's simply a nice opportunity to socialize with the demands of the garden largely behind us.  A good opportunity also to ask questions about getting your garden ready for the inevitable.... or anything else on your mind.

It is the people and the friendship that make our breakfast meetings so good, but another thing that helps is that attendees are ask to bring to the table something that they can pass around and talk about. I don’t mean a bottle of sweet and sour sauce - I mean some-thing horticultural. It can be a plant, a seedling, a catalogue, a magazine, a book, a favorite garden tool, a new deer repellent, even an enormous bunch of flowers plucked from the garden that very winter morning (as Ran did one early winter day).


*There is only one rule. If you intend joining us you must let Mike Shadrack know, either by phone on 716-941-6167 or by email at before 5pm on the previous Friday to book the places with the restaurant.
