Jonathan Hogarth - Will be our special guest speaker from ENGLAND!!


I've included an introduction of JONATHAN HOGARTH!    
Jonathan says that his first hosta come with his first house. One day, he decided to buy a hosta at a nursery... and instead bought ten. He then sought out specialist hosta nurseries, joined the British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society (BHHS), learning, acquiring and soon taking on various positions in the organization. 
Then one day Jonathan received a call from British hosta matriarch, Diana Grenfell, who suggested he take on the UK Plant Heritage Collection of Small and Miniature Hostas; a great honor. Within a year of being approved, he had received an invitation from the Royal Horticultural Society to display at their biggest show, Hampton Court. In an amazing trajectory of skill and luck, Jonathan won a top medal – a GOLD – on his very first time showing, and was also awarded “Best Exhibit” in the Heritage Section. 
From there, he applied to – and was accepted at – the best and most prestigious show of all; Chelsea Flower Show (which has a waiting list of eight years for mere mortals). He won a Silver-Gilt at that show and learned how to improve going forward. Since then, he has applied to and been accepted for both shows again. His star continues to rise. 
Jonathan’s talk, The British (mini) Invasion, is very much the story of his journey into hosta growing, selling and showing in England. From one hosta to a thriving business in small and mini hostas, an unusual propagation system and showing in the most prestigious shows in England, we will all experience the journey.
