Received the hostas today and they were packed very carefully and in excellent condition. Very nice instructions included. This is my second order in the last few years, and I am very pleased with the results.

Received my 2nd order in a month last weekend. As with previous orders, everything was in great condition. Everything has bee potted up and doing well. Once the heat breaks, I'll get them in the ground. It's just easier to keep an eye one them while they're in pots in one place.

I purchased 37 Hosta from New Hampshire Hostas via mail order and couldn't be more pleased. I received the plants in perfect condition. They are healthy and not stressed. When I saw how they packed the plants, I was very impressed.

Plants were very nice. It was as if I went to the nursery and hand picked the plants myself.

The website was very helpful and easy to navigate. The information from the website helped me easily plan out the hosta plantings.

Quality product and service. I'll be purchasing here again.

I recently ordered some starter plugs from New Hampshire Hostas. They arrived promptly (almost next day) and in great shape--well-wrapped and very healthy.

I was SO impressed with the excellent packing technique you use, and the perfect condition of the plants we received from you in May. We were also very pleased with your reasonable prices and the nice sized plants (not teeny tiny) we received, as well as the friendly answers to our questions over the phone. Our new hostas are doing beautifully! I certainly will order from you again, and will recommend your company to my friends. Thank you!

I got beautiful plants from New Hampshire Hostas. They were large Hostas, ready to go into the ground. I was very pleased with the size of the plants, they were healthy and in 4.5 inch pots and well packed. I got the order in four days. Prices were reasonable especially considering the size.

I have purchased over 75 Hostas from them and for an Internet business I would give them a A+ . There website is first class ,their servious is also. I know some people have had complaints about their shipping ,but to compared to some of the other dealers the potted plants are wonderful. Yes there maybe a little dirt loose in the box ,but a little water take care of that in a minute. Overall I find them to be the best.

First time ordering from this company. Went there in person while on vacation. Huge inventory and gorgeous, full grown hostas planted all over as well.Had twenty five hostas and heucheras shipped back home. All arrived in four days and all in perfect condition. You get huge plants for the dollar, not root stock. Will be ordering from them every year as no one online has a larger selection including four hostas farms I previously used here in Georgia.Very knowledgeable and helpful staff.Great sales as well.

I like miniature hostas and this company had two that I had wanted for a long time, silver threads and golden needles and tattoo.I paid 12.95 and 13.95 respectively where other nurseries were charging twice this, if they had them at all.The plants arrived quickly and were beautiful.They were also quite large and have settled in nicely.Definitely a quality nursery.

This is the first time I ordered from you and I was very pleased with the speed and the condition of the plants received. I'm always hesitant to order plants off line, but I can't find the mini and small hosta plants around here. I'm trying to find and collect the "Mouse Ears" hostas. I have a good start, but finding them is difficult, if not impossible for some. Thank you for your prompt service and beautiful plants.

I was very happy with my entire experience with New Hampshire Hosta. the ordering experience was great. the website has TONS of pictures and categorization, as well as great sales. they had a deal running for free shipping on purchases over a certain amount, which was nice, but shipping seemed pretty reasonable before having been removed on my checkout. on top of that, the package went from new hampshire to nebraska in two days flat. they were ordered monday morning, shipped tuesday, and planted thursday afternoon.

i was skeptical about the shipping involved. i really couldnt fathom how mature plants would be packed effectively for travel 1500 miles. i was amazingly suprised when i opened my box. not a single damaged leaf, not a single dried out root ball, not a single stressed plant. they were laid flat, but within 10 minutes in the air and a bit of light, and they were looking perfect... 'Toy Soldier' was particularly stunning. can't wait to watch my shade garden mature over the years. big thanks and highest recommendations for this companies products and services!

I have never ordered hostas online before. I ordered some "plugs" for a few that were otherwise sold out, so wasn't sure what I would receive. I was happy with both plugs and regular plants. Everything was well packed and arrived in great condition. It was like Christmas opening the box. Will be ordering from them again.

For my first time ordering from New Hampshire Hostas, I was completely overwhelmed after unpacking my order, which I received today. I could not stop smiling!!! Careful packing ... Not one leaf on the total of 20 different Hostas I ordered were damaged. That is amazing. Size of the plants is very much appreciated ... They obviously put a lot of love & passion into what they do & Hostas I could never find, well look no further ..... Choo Choo Train was part of my purchase because of my husband's passion for steam engine trains & it is absolutely beautiful!!!

Well, I wish I had found this company years & years ago, but I know of them now, so maybe I'll keep them a secret from my gardening friends ... That wouldn't be fair to NH Hostas, would it??? I'll have to re-think that.

Thank you all at NH Hostas!!!

After receiving and opening my hosta plants today I now realize that I have been purchasing plants from mediocre nurseries!
Impeccable packing and shipping, but the BEST part is that I couldn't have picked out any healthier plants had I been there myself!
Kudoo's to all.......from the growers, to the packers and even FedEx.........professional all...and it's greatly appreciated.

This is a great company to deal with. Just received my third order, and the plant quality and packing is excellent. Even the plugs were good sized, well rooted specimans. The Heuchera and ferns were also perfect. Thanks for the great repeat experience.

Ordeded 3 hostas last spring, I received the hostas in a timely manner. Upon opening the package, 2 of the hostas that I ordered had a letter attached to them with a check for half the price of the hostas. What a surprise! The hosta's foliage was accidentally frozen in shipment. I was assured that the roots were just fine. I planted both as directed in the letter and they are growing just fine. It was an over and above for New Hampshire Hostas. What an example of excellent customer service!! Thank you!

This is my second year ordering from New Hampshire Hostas, and I couldn't be more pleased. The packaging is great, they use recycled materials such as newspaper, and the peanuts are made from corn, I had no problem lifting the products from their sides with minimal spillage. A small price to pay to keep packaging out of the land mines. Now back to the number one reason why I will continue to purchase from them, their plants are awesome, healthy, and grow with great success. Their website is fabulous, so much to choose from and very easy to navigate, and free shipping over $50. You will not be disappointed.

Given all the great reviews, I was a little dissappointed in my order. First the positives: the web site is great, they have a tremendous selection (I've been looking for 'Glory' for years), prices are good, shipping was very fast and free with a $50 order. Now the negative: the packaging was not very good. The pots were lying on their sides in the box, so the newspaper and rubber band packing didn't contain the potting mix. I had a big mess of loose soil, damp newspaper, broken leaves and soil stuck to the leaf surfaces. I contacted the comapny and received an apology and an offer to make things right. I will wait until spring to see if the plants make it through the winter. Despite the packing mess, everything actually seemed really healthy.

I just received another order from NH and this is for Fall planting. The Hostas arrived in great condition and at exactly the day that I requested. I will continue to use this company.
I would recommend this mail order plant company to all Hosta lovers.

I placed my first order with New Hampshire Hostas about a week ago based on their very high rating here at Dave's Garden. I wasn't disappointed!

Theirs is a wonderfully informative website and they have a huge assortment of hostas. A real plus with me is that they offer free shipping with orders over $50! Nice!

The hostas arrived today. They were very well packed, and looked very fresh - (well, except that they were practically begging to be taken out of the box!!)

After unpacking, I placed them outside in a shady area to let their leaves stretch out a bit - and, boy, did they recover quickly! I checked on them after an hour and they look like they were never in a box travelling from New Hampshire to Wisconsin!

I'm very, very pleased with my 8 hostas I received from New Hampshire Hostas. There's nothing like purchasing plants from folks who obviously care very much about customer satisfaction.

This is my 3rd order from NH Hostas. I had always thought of hostas as a "filler plant" but the information on their incredible website made me see these plants in a different light and I will continue to buy new varieties from them. By the way, I ordered on-line on Wednesday, they shipped on Thursday and I received on Friday. Beautiful plants - great packaging - really good prices. Can I give a Triple Positive!

This was a first time ordering from this company, although I have ordered plants online before. I was looking for the smaller variety hostas and New Hampshire Hostas had a good selection., The plants arrived quickly, all were very healthy looking and packaged with great care. It has been a unique experience; often I have had to nurse my online plants along before they had that healthy well cared for look.

This was my first time ordering from New Hampshire Hostas. I was looking for some miniature hostas to add to my front yard.

I will highly recommend this company, and will definitely use them again in the future!

As first time customers we were totally satisfied with the service we received! They found us a few T.

We would recommend this company to anyone looking for Hostas.

I would recommend New Hampshire Hostas to everyone. The plants were exactly as pictured - single plants for large hostas and multiple plants for the smaller ones. The plants took 4 days to ship and were in excellent condition. They were still moist and not a broken leaf or loose soil in the package. I also sent an e-mail asking a question for comparison purposes and a recommendation on specific hostas. The response was prompt and to the point. It's very refreshing to get an answer that tells both the pros and cons of a specific plant, rather than highlighting only the positive aspects. A great company with a wide selection and good prices.
