Naylor Creek Hosta Nursery

As many of you know I lost my partner, Jack, to dementia just a few days after posting the 2020 catalog...we all miss him terribly but I know he would have always wished for me to go forward with the nursery that took us half a lifetime to build. The year has had many trials and tribulations but I have managed to get thru it. Dear friends and customers gave lots of support and understanding and I will never be able to Thank everyone enough...my heart is full of gratification!! My closest friends and allies in the Hosta World, the Fransens, in the Netherlands, have always been there to lean on. I have a young helper, Zephyr who has been with me for a year and even with a vast difference in age we have become good friends and I sure do depend on him. I still have all my animals and, they, just like me, aren’t as spry as we used to be. Covid has changed our lives forever more and taught us isolation is bearable.

Luckily, we are strictly mail order so please use the website to meet your hosta needs...I do my best to answer calls but it will probably come after a message has been left...emails are more than welcome and I do attempt to answer them the same day. We no longer do a print catalog but there is a pdf button on the home page that will allow you to print the website in a very usable form with photos and descriptions.

For 2021 we have many new hosta introductions from our group of hybridizers...Jeff Moore, Dan Wols, Don Dean, Rick Goodenough, Jim & Meg Dalton, Viktoria Serafin, Trudy Van Wyk and several others...also all of our partners in Europe...the Fransens, Jan Van den Top and a whole host of folks in Belgium through the efforts of Danny Van Eechaute. We feel we are working closely with many of the most serious folks who spend half their lives involved in the creation of exciting new hostas. We continue to grow mainly tissue-cultured hostas as this allows us to bring production to market at a reasonable price and maintain adequate supplies. Also, tissue-culture aids in the attempt to assure we are providing disease free plants. We are doing more dividing these days so we can continue to supply older varieties. We, and our suppliers, are testing old and new stocks on a regular basis in the hope of accomplishing this goal.

Please note the “HOSTA INTRODUCTIONS LISTINGS” TAB this is where you will find the NEW and returning plants that have been absent for a period all on one page...DON’T FORGET TO GO THROUGH THE REST OF THE CATALOG by clicking on the “HOSTA CATALOG” TAB as this is where you will find a complete listing of all our stocks and even inventory numbers showing what is available. Located in Washington state our growing season commences early and we can normally ship from the 1st of April through September15th

Happy Hosta Hunting in 2021...it will always be The Boyz at Naylor Creek, Gary (& Jack too!)
