I ordered approx 40 hosta liners in June. They arrived promptly. They were a bit smaller than expected but we had a late spring and I knew they would be young liners. I was just hoping to be impressed. I was still very happy with quality. The plants are still small but healthy and I expect them to reach maturity in another 2 years. They have grown quite a bit since planted; about tripled in size. The cost was reasonable and their selection is outstanding. I would definitely order from them again if I find more space.
I ordered seven plants at a very good price they arrived very fast but my issue was when I opened the box. My plants were not secured they were pretty beat up I sent the company two emails with pictures. I was told I had to go after Fed ex for a claim but the problem wasn't with Fed ex the box was in pristine shape the plants just weren't secured. They told me not to cut the leaves and plant them and tie them up which I did but the leaves are dying they were just to beat up but I'm hoping the roots take hold. So I'll just stay with my other suppliers.
Ordered several hostas that were on sale. I received the plants within a few days after ordering. Very beautiful, health plants with numerous, strong roots. Country Boy's also has a great selection of hostas. Will definitely order from them again.

Just received my first order of seven assorted hostas! Nice, healthy plants, in little pots with great root systems. Ordered on 22 May and they arrived on 30 May 2015 - with the Memorial Day weekend in the middle. Great packing system. They're having a sale now to celebrate their new website. Hostas, heucheras, and ground covers. http://www.countryboygardens.com
Some of the best plants I have ever ordered online !
The plants, and when I say plants I mean mature Hostas several inches tall in very healthy condition. They wait until a certain date to ship as to assure optimal growth in your zone. So if you order before that be sure to check for the shipping date in your area. Plants arrive quickly after that.
The only caveat is Fed Ex may handle the box roughly as I experienced a couple of broken stems. But the will grow back and I can't blame the company as they were shipped very securely.
If you are looking for very healthy Hostas that will arrive promptly, give Country Boy a try !

I placed 4 orders this spring with Country Boy and each was received in perfect condition. My plants were received within 4 or 5 days of ordering.All of their plants are potted, so you don't have to go into a MUST plant now mode. The plants all had big root systems. The pricing of their plants is the best I could find, and to add to the bargain prices they had a 25% off sale. After my first 3 orders I thought I have overspent my budget enough already! Butttttttt they then forced me, lol to place another order with an up to 67% off sale [which is still running] ...hmmmmm some varieties for $2 and $3 each; I couldn't pass up the opportunity and placed my 4th and largest order.
Thanks Odell and Joy, great value and super service!On July 15th, 2013, jfkiii added the following:

This year I placed two orders with Country Boy Gardens, purchasing a total of 12 hosta's. The hosta's arrived in perfect condition, packing is excellent, and all hosta's were just beautiful and healthy.
Last year, 2012, I had also placed an order for 6 hosta's. They also arrived in healthy, perfect condition and doing beautifully in the garden this year.
I highly recommend this company and will be continuing to do business with them. Thank you again.
I ordered 30 hostas from Country Boy Gardens. All were healthy and happy when they arrived. The packaging was excellent as well. They mailed the hostas in a timely manner. I am truly a delighted customer!

Talk about fabulously fast shipping - I ordered 9 hostas on April 29th and they all arrived on May 4th. I wish all net nurseries were so incredibly efficient. Plants look really healthy and I can't wait to get them in the ground and growing!!

Very healthy hostas, good packing too! Almost too good.
I was very happy to get a lot of different varieties so I can add new things to my Hosta garden. I ordered 18 and hope to buy more real soon. Love the prices, love the flat rate shipping. :)On July 9th, 2011, virginiarose added the following:

I've ordered from Country Boy a couple of times and am happy with them. They have a great variety of hosta at great prices and the specs they give on each plant is REALLY helpful in trying to find the right plant for the right spot. The packing must drive the workers crazy! Very well done. Thanks Country Boy! Your Hosts were the foundation of my little dewy meadow.

Heard about this site here at DG and decided to give them a try. First order was for 19 hostas . I know I know,, got carried away, however the prices were wonderful and the shipping cost was very low. I recieved my plants within days, expertly packed and looking great. I was so impressed I went back and ordered 25 more plants!!
I have never had such great service as I have had from Joy and her family at Country Boy Gardens and I have been singing about thier site to any and everyone who will listen. Excellent assortment of plants and excellent service.
I ordered 3 hostas. The plants arrived well and securely packaged and extremely healthy. I got an email from Country Boy Gardens when they filled the order, so I knew it would ship soon. The shipping was reasonable and timely. I would positively order from them again!
