Hosta 'Satisfaction'
A Bridgewood Gardens Introduction

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

We are not importers and we are not an internet pretend nursery 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.

After many years of operating as separate mail order nurseries, Bridgewood Gardens and The Crownsville Nursery are getting back together

About 20 years ago we found  that our collection of perennials, ferns and hostas had grown to hundreds of different varieties. Offering so many plants in one catalog became unwieldy, so we removed most of the hostas from the Crownsville nursery catalog and started Bridgewood Gardens. Well, times change, and the internet has made it easier to offer a large number of plants in one place and we decided that life would be simpler if we put everything back together again. Starting this season, all of our sales will again be through The Crownsville Nursery.  Our combined 2016 online catalog, including all available hostas is now on line at\store.

We still have hundreds of different hosta varieties, and now we can offer all of our shade perennials, ferns, and hostas on one web site.  They will still be grown and shipped by the same people, so you can expect the same quality and service.

Combining our nurseries will make things easier for our many customers that have ordered from both web sites in the past. All of our plants will be in the same place, so you will no longer have to place separate orders and pay separate shipping charges.

We also have a new shopping cart that will make ordering easier, with a cleaner look and organization and a simpler one page checkout. The new cart also has a vastly improved search function that should make it easy to find exactly what you are looking for.

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.

We specialize in caring for gardeners afflicted with Hosta
