I didn't know, but this may be a way to tell a nursery who sels infected hostas, they have to do better

Last spring I went to the biggest nursery in my area, just to see what they had, to get new :wink: ideas, had a few plants in the basket, would no bye, just look
Came to the hosta area and found a Sum and S with mayor HVX. Close by were one of the emplyed gardeners, so I told her it was infected and so would all their S andS be. They had to trow them out and contact the suplier... Darvin Plants

Next week or so I came back... picked up the trees, clems, rhodies and other plants I wanted.. all in all $ 600 or so, then coud not resist to check out the hostas.
The very cler HVX hosta was gone, but the rest of them was still there :evil:
Found the gardener and told her it was NOT acceptable. She replyed that wisteria and tulips had virus too... and I said, no matter, you do not move or share those plants.... and then my bad temper took over and I followed with... if you sell infected hostas, I can't trust in any plants from here .. then I left the shopping cart and went out.
Angry, sure I was
Thinking, no way

Last week a frined of a friend told me, they were not seling hostas at all :o

So here is an idea if you see infected hostas... go fill up the card with expensicve plants.. find the infected hosta, find a employe..and if she/ he do not listen ... drop the cart :D :wink: :lol:
If she/ he listen.. feel happy and find the plants you want...... :lol:
