About Homestead Division

Homestead Division is owned and operated by Peter and Jean Ruh who have been growing hostas for over fifty years. With the help of their daughter, Janet they intend to continue to grow them for at least another fifty years!

All of our plants are grown in raised beds or field rows. We use composted soil, sheep manure, and our own leaf humus to encourage strong growth. We fertilize lightly in mid-April with an organic fertilizer (available for sale at the nursery). We are convinced that our growing techniques allow us to offer you strong, naturally grown plants which will readily adapt to your garden.

About Our Garden

Our Home is surrounded by three and a half acres of plants, shrubs, and trees that have had years to mature from our original vision. From either side of the house there exists a gently sloping maze of walled and terraced beds. Ring the bell on the bell tower. Watch the birds at the bird feeder. View the water garden and stroll along the edge of the woods. You will see the many shapes, textures, and colors of Hosta in individual, natural settings. We hope they will give you inspiration for your garden, just as we have nurtured our own landscape by visits to beautiful locations in many countries throughout our gardening lives.

Visitors are welcome to browse through our garden.

Garden Planning Service is available through Homestead Division as well. There is a 20% discount on plants purchased through this service and a fee of $100 for a garden plan. Please contact Janet Ruh for further information.
