Foxfire Gardens

Well I hope I didn't get anyone all excited by posting that title.  I was just thinking the other day how much I missed visiting Foxfire Gardens.  Foxfire Gardens was a hosta nursery located of Marshfield, WI.  Last fall Foxfire announced that it was going out of business.  They had a large variety of hostas, and also had a nice hosta display garden.  It's unfortunate that they went out of business, and are sorely missed by many hosta fanatics like myself.  I noticed that many people visit my blog looking for information on Foxfire Gardens.  I have not seen it for myself, but someone visited Foxfire this summer hoping that at least the display garden was still open.  They said that the power had been turned off on the electric fence that kept the deer out, and the hostas had all been eaten to the ground.  Very sad.  Below is a video of my friend Gina and I at their going out of business sale.

Would love to know if at least the gardens were still there.
