You cannot go wrong buying from this company. I have been ordering from New Hampshire Hostas for the past four or five years, possibly longer - I have so many hostas it's hard to be sure where they all came from. However, anything from NHH - every single order - I have received has been perfect - well packaged, generously sized plants, fast shipping, and the plants are always healthy - don't think I have ever lost one (other than to severe drought that we had a couple of years back and I just couldn't keep everything watered enough - but that was not their fault - it was mine). They have a great website - easy to navigate, fast and reasonable shipping, and their customer service is second to none! Definitely recommend them!

First of all I really, really enjoyed shopping on this web site. It's very user friendly lots and lots of pictures and categories and information. I put in the order on line and paid with credit card, easy. Then I realized I forgot one and it was the one that was on sale. SMH, I called NHH and Richard answered the phone and took care of the problem. :)

Well, I received some beautiful plants from 'New Hampshire Hostas', just what I've been wanting. These are large Hostas that are ready to go into the ground and get big. I was very impressed with the size of the plants, they are extremely healthy and they were in 4.5 inch pots and very well packed. I bought ten hostas and got free shipping over fifty dollars and I got the order in four days. Prices were very reasonable especially considering the size, they are all three or four year plants. I am very happy. I will post pictures of all the plants on the Host thread. Thank you very much !!

It's me again, I have been having a ball on the website. I have printed out all the slug resistant hostas and the sun tolerant. I could not resist the autumn sale with the 33% off, great time to get those hostas I could not afford mid season. Plus free shipping makes me very happy. I just ordered another five hostas and they are kinda dormant but the roots are strong and healthy. I am very impressed, as always with the fast shipping.

On April 23rd, 2012, virginiarose changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:

I was happy with my order over-all. The Great Expectations they sent was huge! There was another plant I considered to be a bit small but It all balanced out because of the extra large GE they sent. At first the plants were not in good shape, the packing was not as good as in the past and I had a big mess because the dirt feel out of the pots and the hosta's were slightly stressed out to put it mildly. However they did perk up rapidly after I repoted them and they are so very beautiful.
I did contact the company and was given a full refund, but by then the plants had perked up so well, that I just sent the check back. I really am happy with my order and since I did report the problem I believe it will be corrected quickly. :)

Oh, forgot to mention, I Received an apology from this Company, regarding the packing. They also gave me a come back coupon for 20%!!

On October 31st, 2013, virginiarose added the following:

Well, I finally got to use my coupon and yes it was still there! I loved the fall sale and I got 8 hostas that have been on my want list for a while and also got one that I already have because you really can't have too many 'June' hostas. Especially here in zone 8, they really tolerate heat well as with the others I ordered.
I put this order in late Sunday night and when I checked my email the next morning they had already shipped. Wow!! I got my box yesterday when I got home from work. Great packing, and still moist. I love that they are already potted and I had nothing to do but unpack and give them a squirt of water. Yippee!

Wonderful service; hostas at a great price -- huge variety to choose from with good info on them. Ordered and got my hostas 2 days later. They arrived in excellent shape (just starting to go dormant -- nice, big, healthy root systems). Really like their website too - easy. I'd highly recommend them.

I ordered 10 Hostas for my Hosta garden last year, and only 3 came back this year. It is my fault that I did not call them sooner, but today when I called with my concerns the representative cut me off and told me in no uncertain terms that it was NOT their product, and that he was sure of. I have never ordered Hostas online and will think twice before I do so again. I have many varieties in my garden that I have purchased and have been given to me from other gardener friends, so I do know how to grow them. These plants simply did not survive the winter, and not only did the company not back up their product, he was rude in handling my concerns. Lesson learned.

I found NH Hostas quiet by accident and was impressed with the number of Hostas available--much more choices than at a local nursery. I have order several times and all of the plants have arrived in a timely manner and have been very healthy upon arrival. I love looking at the different species and finding spots in my own yard for them.

First time buyer.

I bought and received 3 Hosta plants and 1 plug.

Each Hosta arrived in excellent condition, well-rooted.
One is flowering.

Prices are reasonable, plants securely-wrapped, super-fast shipping.

I recommend New Hampshire Hostas. A 5* Nursery.

I ordered from NH Hosta based on the positive comments offered by other gardeners. I could not have been happier with the heuchera plant plugs when they arrived two days later! The plants were healthy, great size and well packaged. I placed them in the ground immediately and they look like they have always belonged there. Great product, fine company...I will be ordering again in the near future!

I read all of the positive reviews for New Hampshire Hostas, and just had to place an order to see for myself if all the comments were justified. Well I can report they were and the plants were received in perfect condition. Large plants arrived in 4.5 inch pots and easily transferred to my containers.
Thanks Richard "Ill be back!" to order again

I ordered three Regal Supreme hostas on Saturday night. They arrived at my home on Wednesday. They were packaged with care, completely undamaged and intact, and very vigorous. I am very satisfied with the product and feel the price to value is excellent. I appreciate being able to select from hundreds of varieties and choose the hostas that best fit my space and environment. The website provides excellent information about each variety. The directions that accompanied the plants was thorough and complete. At the garden store, the selection is limited to only 4-5 varieties and the prices are expensive. As far as I am concerned, I will be ordering my hostas from NH Hostas from now on.

I received my first order of 7 hostas from New Hampshire Hostas last week, chosen from their weekly specials. I am absolutely delighted with the company. The hostas are very healthy and much larger than I expected. They arrived 4 days after I ordered them and the packaging was top rate. The hostas were very fresh just as if they were dug the same day.
I highly recommend the company and will definitely be buying from them again. Great job, Richard! Thank You.

Healthy plants, a large inventory to choose from, extremely fast shipping, reasonable prices…what more could you ask for? We ordered a total of 14 hosta, which were a combination of sizes ranging from 35 mm starter plugs to 4.5 inch pots. Our plants were delivered within three business days of placing the order, and the box was packed perfectly so none of the plants were damaged. The plants themselves were green and healthy. No brown, wilted leaves or visible disease. I fully expect them to take off without a hitch and become nice full mounds by this time next year. I highly recommend NH Hostas, and will definitely be doing business with them again.

I received my order yesterday. They came within a few days of my placing the order. All the plants were in perfect condition! The hostas are small, but priced accordingly. Full sized plants from a garden center are twice the price, and local garden centers have very limited selections. Very happy with my purchase, and plan on ordering from NH Hosta again and again.

I ordered 2 hostas which were very large and healthy, as were the ferns. They were very well rooted and should be very successful. The plugs were small. In fact, I didn't realize the 2 were wrapped together and I called the company to ask them where was the other plug. They told me to look at the packaging and I would see the second one. The person offered immediately to replace them if they were too small, but I think they'll be fine since they are healthy and well rooted. A very good value!

Since I recently relocated in the Northeast (west central PA), I thought I'd give this company a try. In general, I think it's a good practice to order live plants only from nurseries that are closer to your own locale, not across the country.

Ordered ten plants (Hostas and a Fern) and they arrived within a few days, as requested. PERFECT packing and one can see the plants were handled with loving care! Hardly a bend leaf in the bunch. They arrived fresh and moist and as lovely as if I had picked them off the nursery shelf myself. The plants are substantial and look vigorous and eager to grow. Even the couple of plugs were a decent size and healthy.

HIGHLY recommend this nursery for anything they carry. Very happy customer and plant to order again for years to come.

ANOTHER fabuous order. Plants arrived fresh and happy. Plants are gorgeous, huge, and healthy. Packed with obvious love and care. This owner obviously takes great pride in his nursery and it shows with old-world pride in every detail. Delightful. I hope to meet these people some day if I'm ever in New Hampshire. What a company!

(Holy mouse ears) was in great condition. out of the 6 online distributors i used this season NH hostas i ranked #1.
(good job NH hostas). if they had a con it would have to be their $12 flat shipping fee that would keep someone from small orders.

I have ordered plants from them twice. Each time the plants were received at an appropriate time in a healthy condition. This time I was in New Hampshire and stopped by the store. It happened to be a day when they were not open to the public. We realized the store was closed and my wife an I prepared to leave when the owner, Mr. Merritt, motioned me in. He had seen my license plate and noted that I was from out of state. He and PJ took the time to help me select two plants and make arrangements for them to be sent to my home. I appreciated the help and the consideration.

I received my order yesterday and was impressed. The packing of the pots with bamboo sticks to keep them from shifting in the packing box was excellent. All the plants were fresh looking despite the high temps during the journey from NH to TN. The size of the plants was as described on the webiste and all were well rooted. I had missed a plant on their website, and when I found that variety the next day they were still able to add it to my order. I would recommend this company.

I saw a garden program in which they talked about the Hosta 'Tongue Twister' and that it would retain its leaves late in the season. I checked New Hampshire Hostas, and they had it in stock. They were also having a sale, so I ordered some other hostas that were priced so low I couldn't resist. I ordered on Monday, got an email notifying me that they shipped on Tuesday, and had the plants on Thursday. All were nice and healthy with roots coming out of the bottom of the pots. I am very pleased!
