I went to Hallson Gardens for the first time last week. It's hosta heaven. Chris is amazing, he knows each of his plants, their growing habits and he is happy to share his knowledge. He helped me find the perfect hostas for my garden. I can't wait until my next visit.

I've ordered online for two years and got to visit in person today and was so happy I did! The hostas were just emerging, and there were hundreds of them! Hallson's is not just a hosta nursery, but also a perennial nursery and you will find large heatlhy plants. Thanks Chris for all the time you took showing me around.
My absolute favourite source for hostas. The owners are very knowledgeable and are willing to take the time to help you find just the right thing. The prices are quite fair, and the specimens are usually very large! Much bigger than what can be found in a pot at other nurseries. One of my favourite things is that you can walk through the collection of plants in the ground and see how things "really look". Seeing a plant in the pot can only show you so much; the displays at Hallson Gardens are excellent. I will happily continue to make the drive to visit this wonderful place each spring.
