The Johnsons have a great selection at reasonable prices. Hit with a bad frost in early spring, Jeff suggested delaying my shipment to let the plants recover a bit. When they arrived, I was just thrilled: big, healthy plants and several bonuses I'd not expected. This is a first-rate operation, professional but personable. I'll be doing repeat business with them for sure.

This company sent large, healthy plants. AND more bonus plants than I expected!!! Plus they shared additional helpful hints on overwintering my new additions.
Great customer service
3+ fans some 5, healthy + well labeled - fresh/plump roots when delivered. Also good advice about reblooming and also about what to really expect based on my zone5. all around great experience - also gave me good advice about what bamboo to buy for my zone and talked me out of buying his warmer zone bamboo-Their honest + earnest customer service is what will bring me back again!
I did business with Mr. Johnson last year (2006), and like the previous writer in this string commented, I would rate the business higher than "positive" if I could. I received huge, healthy plants in great condition, and the number of bonus plants he sent was unbelievable. There were as many bonuses as plants I had ordered. Without exception, every one of the plants I received from Johnson's Daylily Garden have performed exceptionally well. I could not have been more pleased with this company.

If I could give a higher rating than positive, then I certainly would. I purchased a $25 gift certificate back in Dec. 2006 and to my surprise, Mr. Johnson sent two, one for me and one for my gift receipant. I recently redeemed my gc with an order that came with a 50% bonus. The bonus daylilies were valued higher than my daylily budget. I would not have been able to afford the ones he included as my bonus. The daylilies were extremely large, some with signs of scapes. I'm proud to recieve mature plants! Another nice touch was the cultural guide handout. You can't go wrong with the quality of plants and the customer service Johnson Daylily Garden provides.

I also live nearby and went by this weekend. It's unbelievable and beautiful. The Johnsons are truly nice and honest people and it's refreshing to be told to buy the lower priced plants as a start-up. They also were good enough to let me know if there were any plants on my list that they wouldn't recommend for my area. I would highly recommend them for either mail-order or direct puchase, though the latter is well worth the trip. STU

Jeff and Linda Johnson are just wonderful people. My husband and I visited a few weeks ago, and Jeff was kind enough to spend several hours with us, allowed me all the questions I could ask, and was extremely generous with the bonus plants that came along with my purchase of 12 large, healthy, blooming plants. I couldn't have asked for a more positive first-daylily-purchasing experience from a specialized nursery.

I went tp visit Johson;s Daylilies with my husband about 2 weeks ago. We were treated to a walking tour of the place by the couple who owns the nursery, and they shared a lot of GREAT information on lilies suitable for our area. It was nice to be able to see all of the lilies growing because we could see the health of the plants before selecting. We were advised to amend our planting beds before ordering any lilies, and we took their advice. Even though we did not make a purchase that day, the owner insisted on giving us 12 Elephant ear plants that he dug up and threw in our pickup (free)-just because we admired them!
I have just placed a $300 order with them (a bargain for 84 double plants) and we will be picking them up tomorrow. These are the type of people that you want to do business with! I am looking forward to planting!! If you are ordering from them through the mail-I can tell you first hand that the lilies are all healthy looking plants, and it is evident that the owners love what they do.

I live nearby and went to select Daylilys during peak season. Not only did they give me a great deal on very beautiful HUGE healthy Daylilys but also gave extra including one to my daughter who now has her own Lollipop Dayliy and loves it. Will make the trip again when my Mom and Sisters come down to get them their own Daylilys.

I have ordered plants from Johnson Daylily Garden several times, and have been pleased every time. The plants are always large and healthy.
