The Georgia Hosta Society hosted its 19th annual Hosta Show & Sale Saturday May 17th, 2008 at The Wesley Center of Tucker First United Methodist Church Association building.
The weather was outstanding and vendors sales were very brisk beginning at 8:30am. The GHS vendors included many local and regional growers of hostas, ferns, Japanese maples and other companion plants in addition to vendors that offered unique garden accessories and the Georgia Daylily Society.
The show was well organized and had a record number of entries for the Artistic Exhibition. As one of the oldest local Hosta Societies in the United States, the GHS holds the distinction of having the most local shows of any group within the American Hosta Society. GHS holds these shows as an educational project to help introduce the general public to the genus hosta. Hosta leaves are displayed in vases and are judged by panels of judges accredited by The American Hosta Society.
The Hosta Show and Sale was held on the same day as the “Tucker Garden Tour” hosted by the Tucker Historical Society and allowed gardening enthusiasts a rare opportunity to combine a plant show, garden tours and shopping in one day.
