I've received two orders from Green Mountain this year and just placed another. Plants I received in early spring were barefoot and leafless, but pips were showing. I planted in pots to be assured they would grow and was pleased with their superb performance. The order I received last week included huge plants. Only one of 16 had foliage trimmed, as they stated might happen because it's late in the season. But the root is huge and I can see there will be several eyes. Honestly, the crown area looks like a cut onion, it's big! I've ordered from Four nurseries this year and the plants from Green Mountain are, by far, the BEST,

I placed another order, and had in hand by the end of the week, giving them another feather in their cap for fast shipping. This order did have one small issue, however. The plants were packed in a box slightly too small, giving some of them a decent case of "bed head" and a few bent leaves on others upon unpacking. Nothing that can't be fixed with a little TLC, but still shouldn't happen. All the plants are now (a week and a half later) just fine and no worse for wear. Still my top choice!

I ordered another 24 hostas (varying sizes & varieties) on Memorial Day and they arrived thee days later. Huge, healthy plants that were expertly packed & labeled.
Green Mountain has always sent me the best plants I've ever gotten from an on-line nursery, the hostas are worth more than they charge and it is a pleasure to do business with them.

Last week I had ordered 23 hosta from Green Mountain Hosta Nursery late in the afternoon. The hosta were shipped the very next day and I received them just 2 days later. I didn't want any hosta to add to my collection, I just needed some of the less expensive hosta to plant along the driveway and I was very happy with their prices. The hosta that I received were beautiful. Not one leaf was broken during shipping. Some of the shorter varieties had clumps that were so large that I was able to divide one plant into 5 plants by just separating with my fingers. The roots were massive. I spoke to the owner on the phone and he was very informative and helped me choose the hosta that I needed (color, size & price) The only thing that I disliked was the way that shredded wet newspaper was used to cover the roots for shipping. It caused a mess in my yard as I was planting. I'm thankful that it wasn't a windy day. If I place another order from this company I will request that they use wet newspaper or paper towels to wrap around the roots as other online companies do. I highly recommend this online nursery if you're looking for big, beautiful hostas that are shipped quickly and have great prices.

Ordered some Hostas 6/17/14 and received them yesterday, 6/30/14. I was a little worried about the lack of shipping information on the website, and had no idea what to expect. I received 4 giant hostas, and they all arrived in perfect condition. They were much larger than I thought they would be, and had great developed root systems. Not a tear or bent leaf. Very pleased --- and loved the 10$ shipping. If I buy more hostas, I will definitely buy them from Green Mountain.

I have been buying hostas on-line from Judy & Michael for several years & I have not once been disappointed with any plant I received from them. I received my first order for this year yesterday & once again their plants exceeded my expectations. Plants are all carefully packed, top growth is always beautifully leafed out & healthy + the root systems of their plants are unbelievable.

Telephone contact with this company was friendly, professional, and informative. I ordered six hosta plants, which are reported to do better than most in my Mid-South area. Plants arrived fresh, well- packed, with full and beautiful roots. These plants thrived as soon as they were planted and I intend to purchase more next season. Ordering from them was a very good gardening experience. Great on-line catalog, very fair prices, and excellent plants.

Just wanted to concur with all the positive reviews here, as I've placed three orders with Green Mountain in 2013. This is a very underrated company that sells very nice-sized hosta with great root systems, and their prices are excellent as well. Order 100 bucks worth of plants, and they'll send your order with no shipping charges. It's VERY easy to get to 100 bucks while putting an order together!

I just received 7 hosta from these folks. It's late in the season, so they had already gone dormant, but the roots were HUGE. They all seemed to be outstanding specimens. They were well packed and received in good condition. I will definitely order from them again.

I just received my order of mostly large and variegated hostas, and I couldn't be happier. The shipping was fast, and the plants were large (much larger than I have ever gotten from any other company) and in great condition. The roots were moist and very healthy, and they were well packed. I'm very pleased with the quick service and will order again.

Last month, for the first time, I placed an order for three hostas with GREEN MOUNTAIN HOSTA NURSERY.

My second order of 25 plants arrived 5 days after I placed my order and again were huge and healthy. All plants were so large that they had to be planted in 2 and 3 gallon pots Of the 25 that I ordered, I was able to make a price comparison of 18 which were offered by 2 other popular vendors. I compared their prices, using the less expensive one and found that their prices were much higher than Green Mountain. The same plants would have cost 54% more from the other sources!
Hey Hosta lovers this is a terrific choice for a good variety of cultivars.

I, too, was impressed by the size and health of the hosta I ordered. Really incredible rootball system. Planted it last weekend & it is looking fabulous. Fast service too. I highly recommend this company.

I ordered 3 hostas on Sat. 6/8 and they are in the ground today, Thur. 6/13. I was surprised at how big the plants were and also how developed the root were. I found the prices to be reasonable, and better than my local nurseries in some cases.

I ordered two Royal Standard Hostas, and they arrived today. The shipping was fast, and the plants were in great condition. Each plant was bare rooted, but they were well packed. The roots were moist and very healthy, and each hosta had three eyes, which I believe is quite a bargain, since the plants only cost $5.00 each + s&h.

Green Mountain is such an underrated company. I state this as someone who has purchased from and loves that GWD Top 5 hosta nursery based in Cement City, MI. Green Mountain is right up there with HG. Granted, Green Mountain doesn't carry all of the latest and greatest cultivars, but what they do carry are, with few exceptions, heads and shoulders above every other online hosta nursery in terms of plant/root size and price -- particularly the older, classic cultivars. Last year I bought H. Bill Brinka and H. Wide Brim, and the plants were massive. This year I bought H. Radiant Edger and H. Lemon Lime, and again I was floored by what I received. Unless hosta gardeners are trying to keep Green Mountain their best-kept secret, I don't understand why the nursery isn't more popular and acclaimed on GWD.

I recently placed a large order with them, and I could not have been more pleased with the size and health of the plants, the price, and the speed of delivery. I will definitely order from them again.

Even though there are very few reviews on the company, I decided to place an on-line order with the company because it listed several hosta varieties that I have been interested in. I ordered on late Saturday evening. By Monday, I received an e-mail stating that my order should arrive by UPS the following day. As I have ordered hostas before (both bareroots and container-grown), I do have preconceived notion of what I'll get. So, imagine my surprise when I saw a huge box sitting outside my front door when I got off from work on Tuesday. What I then saw when I opened the box was beyond my belief. I was going "wow" each time I took out a plant from the box. Every plant was fresh and the roots were all cleaned and securely wrapped so that they would not dry out. All plants were clearly labeled. Based on the size of the leaves and roots of the plants, I would definitely consider them divisions from mature plants, not new shoots that would still require a few years to get established. I have to say that out of the 3 hosta orders I made with different companies this year, Green Mountain Hosta Nursery definitely has the best quality and size. The communication is prompt. The company really deserves more recognition on Garden Watchdog. I would highly recommend this company.

This is a great company. They send really large hostas that are freshly dug.
