Why buy from HostasDirect, Inc.?
See our Youtube Channel for all our videos on a wide variety of topics
Since 2005 HostasDirect, Inc. has been selling affordable, quality, pesticide and disease-free plants in two maturities. Hostas, coral bells, and foamy bells are more disease-free plant families, but there are a few common hosta diseases that our plants have never had because they are tested by our growers and grown in screened in greenhouses.
Plant diseases and foliar nematodes are heartbreaking!
Plant diseases and foliar nematodes are ugly, expensive, time consuming, frustrating, and at times impossible to remove once they are in your garden. It pays to buy from a reputable supplier like HostasDirect and avoid bringing unknown diseases into your garden. Learn and see pictures of plant diseases.
