I ordered 2 peonies yesterday from Homestead Farms. They were extremely friendly and helpful -- nice people to do business with. My plants will not be shipped until October, but they did ask me when I wanted my credit card to be charged, so I won't be charged until my plants are shipped. Providing the plants look good and are healthy, I would definitely order from them again.

When I placed my order, I mentioned that one of the peonies I ordered had no picture on-line. They personally mailed me a picture.
The order arrived as promised in October, and the roots were HUGE. 'Great company to do business with.

This was my first order from Homestead Farms but I will definately order from them again. The daylilies I ordered were all at least 3 fans and were large and healthy. The plants arrived exactly when Ron said they would, and it's only been two weeks since I planted them, but they all are showing new growth and one has buds. The free plants were as good as the ones I purchased. If you are buying daylilies this the place to go. They have a large selection and the prices are very reasonable.

Have ordered 30 different daylilies from them. Nice and healthy fans.

I have ordered Hosta as well as Daylily from Homestead, they were wonderfully healthy plants that established well in my gardens. Homestead service was good & fast, and Ron is a very helpful person with a wealth of plant information he is generous to share. I will definately order from them again in the future.

I was very happy with the plants I received even though Ron said their inventory was low at this time of year. The daylilies were freshly dug, healthy, and large. Ron was very nice to deal with, the prices were very good and the shipping charges were very reasonable. They have a great selection to choose from and Ron was very patient with me when I changed my order more than once. He also gave a very good discount. No bonus plants were included (which is okay because I'd rather have the discount).

My partner and I have ordered daylilies twice from Homestead. In the first shipment all of the 33 plants put on new growth within a week, and within two weeks one of them was/still is actually blooming(Chicago Royal Robe).

Did our first order with this company (new to daylilies). They were very helpful; took our order for 33 plants, checked to see what was in stock, got back with us with the final figure. When we received the plants (two days after they were shipped out); we were very pleased; good healthy stock. Each plant had at least three fans; a few had four. All looked healthy for the very reasonable prices on these plants.

I've ordered twice from this company and both times my experiences were great. They sent very large plants that bloomed the first year. Prices are also very reasonable, and the selection is huge. I highly recommend them.

I placed my daylily order by phone with Ron on 4-15. We discussed that I would like the plants shipped the week of 4-26 and that I would like a white bonus plant. Received a box of fantastic looking plants on 4-30. All 2-4 large fans with a HUGE 4 fan bonus of a beautiful white daylily. Would highly recommend Ron and Homestead Farms. Prices were also great.

This is the second year I have purchased daylilies from Homestead Farms. The first time I ordered ahead for pickup at the farm. This year I ordered for delivery. Both times I received large healthy plants with large root structures; at least two large fans, sometimes more.

My husband and I made a special trip to the nursery site in Owensville a couple of years ago and were surprised and very pleased with the operation. They dug our daylillies right as we made our selections as well as answered all our questions about the farm. The plants are every bit as healthy and beautiful as they appear on their website. Ours grew very well.

Ordered a few peony plants very late in the season, so they were out of some of the varieties. They called to make sure the substitutions would be OK, and the plants I received were all very big (several eyed divisions, not scrawny at all--some had 10+ eyes) and healthy looking. No leftovers here. Will be ordering from them again next year!

I've ordered twice. They were very helpful with 3-4 roots to a color. Plenty to share with friends. My early summer order bloomed true to the colors on their website. They had a field clearance sale with great values too this August.

I ordered nine hosta spring 2003 that were delivered timely and in excellent condition - they were bare root and didn't even show signs of wilting. All the plants were huge - larger than anything I have received from other outstanding hosta growers.

I ordered nine daylilies from Homestead Farm Nurseries. I was late ordering and so received them the week after Memorial Day. I received large, healthy plants. The plants are thriving and half are already setting buds. Only one plant was two fans - all the rest were three to five fans. The bonus plant was five fans of Untamed Glory, and I was able to discuss what I would like to have with Ron when I ordered. Imy was also very helpful when I called to check on when the order would ship. It was a pleasure doing business with this company. I also found there web site well-organized and I enjoyed browsing through the inventory.

I ordered for a second time in 2004 and found the experience just as positive as the first. I ordered the northern daylily collection and found it to be a great value for the price. I have about 75 daylily varieties in my collection.

I've ordered daylilies from Homestead for two years now. They send large , beautiful plants. My plants are thriving. Their service is excellent and Ron is very helpful. I would recommend them as a great source for daylilies. I plan to do business with them again.

Last fall I ordered 5 peonies from them, as well as about a dozen from other companies. Their service was extremely friendly and very responsive (even though I had to leave phone messages and rely on their calling back). The roots they promptly sent were beautiful and far superior in size to those of the 4-5 other companies I ordered from and their prices are terrific. Their selection is somewhat limited, so if you're a collector you need to look elsewhere as well, but they do carry a nice basic choice.

We ordered three times from this company in 2002. We were pleased with the quality of the plants in all instances. The divisions were large and many put up scapes and bloomed within a few weeks of being planted. Although they were out of a few plants and selected from our list of alternatives, in general, they filled the order from the list of 'first choices'. We plan to order from them again in 2003--I'm just having a hard time keeping the size of the order within reason.

My order was totally botched. Although I ordered early and was assured that plants were available, the nursery shipped first to the south and thus ran out of my plants. I hope that this practice (of being careless about reserving plants) has been corrected, but I will not order again.

Very nice person, excellent daylily plants, usually with 3-5 fans, easy-to-use website with many pictures. Highly recommend. Prices are very good, also. Homestead is a supplier for Paradise Gardens (but you'll save a few $$ if you buy from them directly.)
