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 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.

Plants shipped to these states must be

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,

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.
