I am thinking about growing Hostas to sell. This book gives a lot of great info such as soil amendments and advice on location so enough sunlight will reach them. I plan on using it to plan my growing area.

This book was written by an "English" person (referring to the country of England) for "English" gardens and with "English" references! The author even referred to weather status' of that country...not the USA. It was very difficult to follow...and I am NOT A NOVICE gardener! (please know I am not showing prejudice towards another country....just referencing the contents of this book. I made a bad choice and will seek out another 'hosta' book.

Can't say enough good about this author. She knows her plants, including Hostas and Daylilies. This book is the 2nd one I bought about hostas. The pages I like best are the ones that show a leaf from each member of a family. What a great way to show variation and size differences between plants! As I have learned about the plants in my garden. During child-raising years I acquired some lovely hostas and other shade loving plants, but didn't have a lot of time to do more than be excited to see them emerge in the spring. Working in the garden calmed me and gave me deep wells of patience to help our children with special needs. Now, I know a lot about the plants in my garden, but I still enjoy reading this book; it tells me something new each time I open it. I'd love to see it updated with more current plants!

Buy this for the plant list. It is easy to spend more than the book price on a modest bunch of Hostas at some garden center, or a lot more, if you are in a big hurry. Grenfell tells us more than those pretty tags do, and even says some of the things they are likely to neglect. I would wish that she had been more explicit about the range of what one is likely to get in the way of plant sizes as one tries to compare garden center, nursery, and catalog prices and outcomes. Hosta "August Moon," p. 99, for example, is a wonderful plant here, pretty much as described, but the late-season potful I got at a garden center in the late 1980's took more than five years to get there; "Large," from what had looked, "Miniature" to "Small" when I bought it. The author may wish to pretend that the people she wishes to address do not haunt the close-out tables at regional garden centers and discount retailers or catalog web sites, but those are places where good information can help you find the good stuff. Likewise for dividing the mature clumps of unlabeled Hostas in the garden of the old house my sister bought in 1998. (Yes! Those purple shoots are Hosta "Patriot," p. 130.) Grenfell grows her Hostas in England, where USDA Zone 6 is thought to be rugged and my Zone 5 is thought to be a howling Russian or alpine wilderness, so she misses out on the strengths that Dr. Rieth was able to deploy so effectively in the cold of Upper Penninsula Michigan, but the advice she gives on growing perfectly awesome Hostas,in Chapter Five, is worth paying attention to.
Grenfell pulls in essays by other experts to cover some of the territory she is not entirely familiar with, but the coordination between the text she wrote and what they wrote is not as tight as I would wish. When Dr. Pollock addresses the H. plantaginea's need for heat and some sun on p.86, he does not contrast North American performance, where long hot summers bloom them right up into Zone 4, to the English performance that Grenfell reports as; unlikely to bloom most years because the growing season is so much cooler. Less careful readers might follow her advice to plant warm, and end up with plants that get frost bitten for coming up too early, and then fried in July and August, or even June.
(Well, it is long and talky. Editing is ok, to be sure, but I do like to put some content in to support my assertions. It would have been helpful to have a word count utility pop up here or in the Perview version so I could get a better sense of how far I have gone here. Paragraphing would be nice too.)
