The Site Map will lead you to pages with
information about choosing and growing
hostas and information about our plants
and our nursery.
Shipping charges, plant sizes,
blah, blah, blah.
If you are new to hostas and don't know where to start
or if you just want some really inexpensive plants, consider our pot
luck collections. Just tell us how many plants you want, we
require a minimum of 10, and we will choose a variety of different
colors, shapes and sizes.
A Bridgewood Gardens Introduction
We are not importers and we are not an internet pretend nursery
that that sells plants grown by others. We grow the plants we
sell. We've been doing it for over 35 years and we're
finally getting the hang of it.
Hostas are easy to grow perennials grown
primarily for their colorful foliage. They thrive in light
shade and can survive for decades with little or no care.
If you're a bit leery about buying plants on the
internet, you can see what our customers have to say about our
quality and our service at
shipping season has ended.
We have left a
sampling of our catalog posted for those
who would like to see an example of the
plants we sell. We will have many
more varieties available in the spring.

sorry, but we are unable to ship plants to AK, AZ, CA, HI,
ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, UT, WA, WY or outside the U.S.
Plants shipped to these states
must be shipped bare-root (by State law except for AK and HI). We
ship all plants in pots, and the time and expense involved in
bare-rooting make it impractical. We are sorry, but we are unable
to comply with these requirements and we cannot ship to these states.

Our 1986 Catalog
began growing hostas in 1979 when we opened our first
garden center, The Crownsville Nursery. In 1984 we
mailed our first perennial catalog.

A warning to casual Hosta users:
Many of us, when we first started using Hostas, thought we could stop
whenever we wanted. What begins as casual experimentation can quickly
develop into a serious addiction. If you find that you actually want to
know the differences between ‘Inniswood’ and ‘Paul’s Glory’, if you tell
your spouse that you paid less than you really did for a new
introduction, but brag to other gardeners that you paid more, or if you
no longer care what your spouse thinks, you need help.
Help is available from Bridgewood Gardens, a nursery that specializes
in caring for gardeners afflicted with Hostas.
We built and maintain the site ourselves, and since we change it frequently,
and since we don't always know what we are doing, you may occasionally find
something that doesn't work. If you find a broken link or something that
doesn't work, please let us know and we'll see if we can fix
We don't share the information you give us with anybody, period.
