I am so pleased to be able to give an outstanding review to Homestead Farm's Nursery. They have become my new go-to nursery for daylilies. First, prices are extremely competitive and you get plants of outstanding quality that, for the same cultivar, costs several times the price elsewhere. They offer a nice selection of daylily cultivars (in addition to hostas, Siberian iris, hardy ferns, and clematis...but primarily daylilies). Now, the plants themselves are outstanding, big healthy divisions with beautiful plump root systems, my orders had at least three fans with most having additional fans ready to break the soil surface (I ordered in early April). When they say they dig the plants, prep them for order, and ship they same day, they mean it! I placed my order online at 6am; by 4pm I had the tracking number. Total time from placing my order to delivery was 2.5 days! That is an all-time best from any company. Plants were well packed with moist newspaper so when they arrived they look like they'd just come out of the ground. I can't recommend Homestead Farms enough to people who are looking for great dayliles. I don't think you can go wrong ordering from them!

I ordered several daylilies and an iris. All the plants arrived in great condition and have been planted about two months.

This is the 2nd year I've ordered and their quality is just as wonderful as my last order :) Thanks again!

I decided to order some Siberian Iris and after searching several sites found Homestead was still shipping and the prices were very reasonable. I contacted them and received an immediate response. I've never grown Siberian Iris before and found Ron to be very helpful.

Good plants and service at very low prices. I ordered 5 day lilies from them, all did well, but Golden Compass did great, about 20 blooms on a first year plant

These folks are the ABSOLUTE BEST. They provide friendly and extremely knowledgeable service, fast shipping, great prices and HUGE, perfectly health plants. Everything I've bough has simply bloomed its butt off.

This company Should be one of the top 5. They are great! My order was received earlier then expected. Wonderful size, very healthy. I got my money's worth and then some. I will be ordering from them again.

I've ordered from Homestead Farms twice before, and I'll never hesitate to do it again. I am a daylily addict, and ordered them both times. They were large, healthy divisions at excellent prices.

I ordered 8 clematis plants, they had the best price out there that I could find. All plants arrived very healthy and very well packed. I was a bit hesitated at first about their no online order. I ordered through email and got a response in just a few hours! Very fast and reasonable shipping. Will definitely order again.

I just wanted to add that I made an additional large order to plant a garden bed alongside our fence/main road. Ron was fabulous, helping me determine what might survive a hot California summer. It's a testament to his plants that they held on through one of the hottest summers we've had lately. I ended up having to move them into my main garden beds because it was so hot and the plants were dying-- now three weeks later, the puny, shriveled transplants are doing fabulously and I've only lost a few out of the dozens and dozens he sent. Bottom line is that his plants are strong-- apparently strong enough to survive my less-than-stellar gardening skills! The daylilies I planted in my regular garden beds have bloomed and are growing huge, not to mention many of them are sending up small volunteer fans, so the beds are going to fill in beautifully-- I can't wait until next year!
On April 23rd, 2010, amf94597 added the following:
Placed a third order this year to create a new purple-and-white daylily bed and was just as pleased as last year. Ron shipped exactly when he promised and the daylilies were once again outstanding-- huge fans, lovely condition. Everything is carefully labelled, well-wrapped and still moist.
Last year's plants are thriving and the early bloomers already have their first scapes. He also sent two huge bonus plants of King George and I'm looking forward to seeing those blooms. This year, I also branched out and ordered some hosta-- lovely and, in three days, already leafed out and looking great in the garden. Like a previous poster mentioned, now I have to try the iris and the clematis...

Super folks here! Placed my 1st order last year and my what beautiful daylily fans arrived! Will definitely order from again! Meant to order peonies in the fall but just didn't get around to it!

Ordered from them last year and all the plants were huge and healthy when they arrived. All bloomed this year. The 2 hostas are also doing great.

I ordered several daylilies from Homestead over the winter and I could not be more pleased with what I received. The plants were HUGE - many with three or four fans and terrific root systems. I've ordered from several highly rated companies in the past and these plants were far and away the best looking most healthy I've ever received. I would not hesitate to order from them again or highly recommend them.

I received the biggest, heathiest-looking peony roots with the fattest eyes I've ever seen - I bet they will establish & bloom in record time.

I have ordered several times from Homestead Farms and always recieve terriffic value for my dollar. My latest order was of more than 10 varieties of daylillies and 3 types of Siberian iris'. The iris' could have been (and at most places would have been) divided into three or more plants each and the daylillies are of excellent size and health. My only problem with Homestead is they give too many choices and I want them all! I will continue to do business with them

I recently ordered 7 Patriots, 3 August Moons and 3 Frances Williams from Ron the owner of Homestead Farms. I called the company on a Sunday to place the order and was surprised when Ron answered the phone. I was undecided about whether to order Francees or Patriots and he explained how much better the Patriots would be. He was extremely knowledgable, helpful and kind. The hostas just arrived yesterday and I planted them this morning. The plants are gorgeous..large leaves...very large healthy roots. I am sure they will really take off next spring. I am SO pleased with this company. You will be very pleased if you order from them. I have Siberian Iris still coming and a few other things. I can hardly wait!

I have ordered daylilies from several places this summer and I must say, that the plants from Homestead have the biggest roots. The plants are big and healthy and I am very happy with the order, that I received and planted today. The bonus plant was a nice surprise. The price range is nice and I will definitely order more from them. I also like their website, where it is easy to view the plants.

I've ordered daylilies, hostas,ferns,and peonies from Ron and Homestead Farms for years and have always been very satisfied with all plants ordered. always large healthy plants,rhizomes, and bulbs I've only lost one plant in the years of ordering and that was my neglect.Nearly all my daylilies come from Homestead Farms. I Highly recommend this company.

I called in an order this spring. The gentleman was very friendly and personable. Everything I wanted was available with my choice of bonus plant (love that--so nice to choose rather than get a bonus you already have). The prices are great. The plants were big and beautiful with extra fans of many. Shipped in eco-friendly re-used cardboard box and newspaper. I will certainly be back for more!

Received my fabulous daylilies today. Huge box with fifteen beautiful cultivars. Large fans and they generously give multiple fans for each daylily you order. I will definitely buy more from Homestead and highly recommend them to anyone who wants to buy daylilies. Also, prices are very reasonable.

I placed a late season order with Homestead as an early Christmas gift for my father. They shipped the order on the exact date I requested. My father called to thank me and said they were big, healthy, fantastic plants - some double and triple fans! He was very excited about them (I think that's the most pleasure he'd expressed about any gift I'd ever given him) and was digging a new bed in his garden just for these plants. I've already recommended Homestead Farms to friends and fellow daylily lovers.

I ordered one peony and was amazed at the huge root with seven eyes that was delivered yesterday.

Homestead Farm provides prompt and excellent service. This is the second time I have ordered from company. Even though I ordered the daylilies when they were on sale, the company is extremely generous, and most of the plants that were shipped have multiple fans (not just double). The plants were cleaned and well-packaged. I was also very pleased with the size of the peony plants that I received as well. This company is truly highly recommended!

Without a doubt, the daylilies I purchased from Homestead are the largest, healthiest plants ever. Outstanding !! They coud use some improvement in their communications. As in, I never heard from them until the package was delivered.

This was the first time I ordered daylilies from this company and I was very impressed. The plants arrived a few weeks ago and they were very beautiful — large and healthy. I received an order from another company today and was disappointed in how small the fans were after what I've seen from Homestead. I would definitely order from this company again. Can't wait until they bloom!

I have placed several orders and each one was excellent. Well packed, nice plants and great bonuses. Easily reached by phone they were delightful to deal with. I've placed orders with lots of plant companies, mostly daylilies, and if I were to compare them to others, they would be at the top of my list for quality, service and timeliness. A+

I placed an order for the first time with this vendor and I have nothing but good things to say. I ordered peonies and hostas from 3 different vendors this season and this company's product surpassed the others. Although the other company's had a high quality product, Homestead's plants were just outstanding. The hostas had huge root systems and the peony roots were absolutely huge. One of the peony roots had at least 10 eyes. Ron, the owner, is a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful and courteous throughout the process. He was willing to take the time to help me make the best selections for my garden. My receipt had a personal note of thanks from Ron. This vendor is a class act.

This is the second or third ? time I have received an order of daylilies from Ron and his family at Homestead Farms and I couldn't be anymore pleased. The size of the fans and roots are just as they promise, and they are very generous with the amount of fans you receive.This is one of the best vendors for daylilies I have ever ordered from and they will get more of my business. I suggested a sub, if need be, and I got it as a bonus. They are very nice people to communicate with and took my changes in stride. I have purchased many, many daylilies over the past several years (550+), and while the Southern vendors ship very large fans, Ron's fans are a good size, very sturdy and the root mass is great. They seem to settle in quicker than the 'leek' size fans and are very easy to work with. I am a very satisfied customer from central PA. J.A. Master

This spring I placed a large order for re-blooming daylilies and several ferns. They arrived as scheduled and were exceptionally fine daylilies, most with three to four fans and large and healthy. Lots of bonus plants also. Ferns were also excellent. Every one of them is doing well, most have bloomed or are budded.

Just received and planted another order from Homestead Farms. This time clematis and siberian iris. Wonderful plants. Large and healthy with impressive roots.
The daylillies I ordered this spring are still thriving through what has been here a record summer for heat and drought.
I'll order more next spring. In my opinion, Homestead Farms
is unsurpassed in quality, service, and price.

This nursery offers a wide selection with good annotations and descriptions, reasonable prices, and shipping costs. They send large healthy cultivars with multiple fans and healthy root systems. A very good source.

Another order that is just wonderful. The daylily cultivars are very large, healthy, clean and green. They are truly "fresh dug;" one has developed a scape while still in the pot!
If you're looking for a great selection of healthy plants that are large and will take off quickly, and are very fairly priced, this is your place. We're fortunate to have such a wonderful source of plants.

This company has the best you can buy when it comes to daylilies. And what a selection! Everything I have ever bought from them is absolutely beautiful. I started buying from this company about four years ago and all the plants I have ever bought are still growing strong. No worries with this company.

I ordered 3 daylilies, a hosta and two irises in the spring of 2004. They were packaged well and arrived in good condition. They gave me as a bonus an additional daylily that I suggested. The plants took a little while to settle in, and only 1 bloomed that summer, but this year all of the plants grew and bloomed very well and were true to name. The prices are good and the owner was very responsive when I e-mailed him with questions.

This is one of the friendliest, best companies I have dealt with! I ordered several fans of daylilies from them because they had the BEST prices. The man I spoke with on the phone was VERY friendly and patient, and I recieved generous clumps of the daylilies ordered PLUS a nice bonus. Since I planted mid-summer, they did not bloom this year (as is expected) but all have survived and thrived and are already putting out new fans! I am so excited about these new plants and plan to continue to order from this company for the new plants I want in the spring.
