"Welcome to our Daylily & Hosta Hobby Garden"
We live in a small town Žiar nad Hronom, in central Slovakia. This place is about 200 km North West from Bratislava, capitol of Slovakia. Our country is a member of European Union situated in the central part of Europe, bordered with Poland in the north, Austria and Hungary in the south, Czech Republic in the West and Ukraine in the east. We have lived here in Žiar nad Hronom for more than 25 years, in a house bought by Milan's parents (his father died in 2010 and mother still lives here with us).
Our passion for hostas and daylilies started about 15-20 years ago. Since that time we have started to grow different ornamental plants in our small garden, surrounding our house. About 400 m² is really not too much, but for us it was more than enough... We started to collect different plants, such as geraniums, dahlias, gladioli, roses, peonies, Japanese maples as well as a few hostas and daylilies. Hostas and daylilies did very well and we loved them the most.
Approximately the same time Dana lost her job, she decided to produce ornamental plants for a local market with the goal of making a regular income - of course, mainly hostas and daylilies. Soon Dana offered hostas and daylilies to local garden sellers and also visited a weekly local agro-market in the surrounding cities. Income was very low and we recognized very quickly that this was not a good selling strategy. It was clear that Dana would have to try to sell plants through the internet. But selling plants through the internet would require having more cultivars...
