Excellent! I just received my first order from Hoot Owl Hollow and couldn't be more pleased. I received a lot of personal attention from the proprietors, the plants were large and healthy, shipping was fast and cost VERY reasonable. I will definitely order from Hoot Owl again. They have a great selection of hard to find plants. I was looking for petasites in particular, and they had the best selection by far of any other place I could find on the web. They also have a great hosta selection. Very good nursery. Thanks!
I was a little leery about ordering from this company because of the feedback but they did have one hosta that I wanted and couldn't get else where, so I took a chance. It is a small hosta but it has a very nice root system and I don't think I'm going to have any problems growing it. They even sent an extra eye of the hosta I had ordered. I'm happy with the plant I received from them. My only complaint is the lack of communication on their part. Most mail order nurserys I've dealt with give you some kind of ship date idea. There was none from them, not even an automated "we received your order" email. Perhaps they can work on that part of their business to make it better.
I ordered 8 small/mini hostas over the phone. They arrived exactly when I was told the shipment would come. The plants were much larger clumps than I expected and in very good condition. I was also sent a cute bonus plant. I thought I got exceptional plants for my money and will definitely order from Hoot Owl again.
