About

The husband and wife team of Charles and Donna Seitz have had a love of hostas for over 20 years. Our own collection of hostas has grown to over 450 varieties. In 2004 we moved from Hanover to York Springs and brought our collection of hostas with us. We soon discovered that our new home was a perfect location for growing and displaying hostas. In 2007 we had a vision of sharing our gardens and our love of hosta with others. In May 2008 Donna officially opened The Hosta Hideaway Nursery and Gardens of York Springs, Pennsylvania with approximately 50 varieties of hostas for sale and two display gardens. Our business quickly grew and in 2009 we were able to double the variety of hostas offered and to significantly increase the number of display gardens. We currently have approximately 400 hosta varieties for sale along with other select shade perennials. At the Hosta Hideaway we endeavor to be more than a business which can be seen in our mission and goals. We strive to demonstrate good stewardship of God’s creation through our business, gardens, products, the relationships we develop, and our interactions within the community. To help fulfill the goal of demonstrating good stewardship within the community, The Hosta Hideaway donates 10% of gross sales each season to local, regional and international human service organizations. We work hard to develop strong relationships with our customers and have found that the relationships we develop have enriched our lives.
