The American Hosta Society's National Convention will be next week in Bloomington, Minnesota. If you love hostas, and have never been to a national convention, I strongly encourage you to attend. I attended the national convention a few years ago in Indianapolis, Indiana. What can you expect at the convention? Well for one there are lots of great hosta gardens to explore. This is a great opportunity to see all kinds of hostas to add to you want list. You will rub elbows with lots of great hosta people, and, of course, there are lots of hosta vendors to visit.
