CANCELED: Not Your Grandmother’s Hostas

March 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Hostas are the #1 selling perennial in the United States today.  If you only grow The Green One and The Green and White One you are missing out on the huge variety of colors, sizes and shapes of today’s Hostas.  This talk will help you identify some new plants that you will absolutely have to have, identify the best places to buy them and teach you how to make them look their best.

Stephen Shaw retired from the Weston Public Schools in 2010 after 36 years as a teacher and principal.  Steve joined the Massachusetts Master Gardeners in 2012, becoming a Lifetime Master Gardener.  He has been gardening for over 40 years beginning by watching both Thalassa Caruso and Jim Crockett on PBS as a youngster.   His one-acre garden in Millbury, MA includes over 300 named varieties of Hosta, as well as a growing number of seedlings of his own creation. 

Sponsored by the Garden Friends of Georgetown.
