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 Hillview Restaurant is located north of French Road and south of Rehm Road ************ 


*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 seating with the restaurant. 


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).
