Hi, I'm Chris Wilson, the moderator/administrator of these forums and one of the owners of Hallson Gardens, along with Brian Hall. (Get it? Hallson?
) My main interest is in hostas and hosta companion plants (sometimes known as shade plants
) We started a gardening business in 1995 called "Perennial Planters". In 1997 we expanded to selling perennial plants a few weekends out of the summer. In 1999 we made the jump to mail order, but it wasn't until a few years later that we really got the mail order business to where it is now. The thing that makes us different from other nurseries is that we really try to let our hostas and perennials grow naturally at their own pace out in our growing areas. That usually translates into a plant that will take off or continue to grow in your garden instead of sitting there trying to make the adjustment from a pampered childhood in a controlled environment to the garden. At least that is our goal, and I think we get it right most of the time. If we don't we will take care of it.
Right now I don't have a personal hosta list put together. As we continue to plant our display gardens I hope to finally put together a listing of "my" plants.
I guess that's about it for now. Drop me a private message or an email if you ever need anything or have any questions about the forums, website, or nursery.
See you around the forums!
