The North Liberty Garden Club met June 11 at Wade and Gatton Nurseries in Bellville .
Van Wade took the group on a scaled-down tour around the nursery’s hosta gardens.
There are 9,000 varieties of the plant. Some are named after children, Native American chiefs and even lacy ruffled edges of American pie crust.
It was an informative walk with Wade and his wealth of knowledge on local history and his gardens was greatly appreciated by the club’s members.
Garden Club members then proceeded on to CrossRoads Café in Butler for a lunch meeting.
