The Middle Tennessee Hosta Society (“MTHS”) was established in 1998. Members’   interests include hostas, shade gardening and ponds. Programs and activities are chosen that  provide a learning experience for all, whether you are new to gardening or have a hosta collection. 

Visitors are welcome!



Get your hostas ready because we have a Hosta Show Scheduled for May 28, 2016.

Congratulations to Steve Watson on his American Hosta Society Award:
