Just recieved a late season order, very happy! As usual, I recieved LARGE, healthy plants with multiple crowns. Even the giant hosta had two crowns, and when I opened it they had already disconnected from each other, so really I got two of those lol- but I\'m gonna leave \'em together! Thanks guys!

Just recieved ANOTHER shipment (I went out of my mind this summer), top notch, healthy plants with multiple crowns as usual. I had a hard time deciding between Kiwi Full Monty and Forbidden Fruit, but decided to go with Kiwi. When they arrived, there was a note that there weren't any Kiwi's left so they were subbing a Forbidden Fruit- now they're reading minds lol! And the FF is a more expensive plant. Thanks guys!

I was looking for Mouse cultivars of hosta for the grave of our much loved cat Mr. Mouse, and this nursery had the best selection and excellent prices. Based on the glowing reviews, I placed what is (for me) a rather large order, and am so very glad that I did. The plants are lovely, extremely healthy and made their cross country transit very quickly. One of the varieties I ordered was out of stock, but I received two beautiful and thoughtfully chosen plants as a substitute plus the offer of a refund if I wasn't happy. A perfect mail order experience.

I've ordered from Naylor Creek several times and have always been thrilled with the plants I've received. I placed an order just last week and two days later I had beautiful, healthy, beautifully packaged hostas delivered to me. Gary and Jack are awesome

Have been buying from gary/jack 4 years once, I won a auction from them for 50 bucks! They would only take 20 dollars 4 the hosta because they said was not worth the $,hows that for good people!

Ordered a bunch of Arisaema tubers. They came very well packaged and were much bigger than I was expecting! Most other nurseries I have ordered Arisaema from sent bulbs about half the size as the ones I got from Naylor Creek. I would order again in a heartbeat!!!!

I've been buying from Naylor Creek for about 5 years and have NEVER BEEN DISAPPIONTED with any plants received. The root system on their plants are massive, they are packed with care, and shipped very quickly. Buy with confidence from Gary and Jack!!

I have been buying plants for the past 5-6 years from Naylor Creek. All my plants, that have been sent to me are of the highest quality and very generous in size and number of divisions. The Boyz are the best! They give good sound advice on everything! I put in multiple orders each year and it is hard not to buy everything in the catalog! I will continue to buy from Naylor because they take good care of their customers.

I bid on and won a hosta from the Lbrary Auction. I talked with Gary and asked to add a couple of other selections and I received the order in 3 days, they were in perfect condition, far larger and nicer than I expected.

Just got another order from Naylor. All I can say is WOW!! All were at least two eyes, big and beautiful and they traveled across country in 90's temps. You won't be disappointed with Naylor Creek!

Update: I just received two plants from Naylor Creek via the Library Auction. Both of these plants are quite rare and can't be found anywhere else on the web. What surprised me was how large these plants were. I was expecting perhaps a first year TC. These plants had foliage at least two feet tall and root systems to match the foliage. Very impressive.

I was so happy with very first order from Naylor that I ordered again on 6/1/12. It was even 2 hours later that I had received a shipping notice from them .... HELLO! Hostas arrived today in absolutely beautiful condition (once again)!
Jack & Gary obviously love what they do .... Thanks so much again once again for the beautiful hostas.
If you haven't ordered from these folks, you won't be disappointed ......

Great company to do business with! I have ordered a few times already and have been very pleased with the communication from them and the beautiful hostas I've received. The plants arrive in great condition, and are packaged with extreme care and labeled. The plants from previous years are thriving in my garden.

I read about Naylor Creek on DGW, and was impressed by the comments posted. Their website was easy to use. I received both written and electronic order confirmation. They shipped my order at the requested time, and emailed me that it was shipped.

Like all reviewers before me I have had only positive experiences with Gary and Jack at Naylor Creek. I've emailed them countless times for advice and have always received prompt responses. Their nursery stock quality has consistently been nothing short of awesome. Oh that all on-line dealings were this easy and positive!

I just received my 2008 order from Naylor Creek, and WOW. I knew prior to ordering H. 'Stitch in Time' that it would be on the smaller side, and I am not complaining, the plant looks great, and the roots are GInormous! The other 2 hosta that I ordered: 'Allegan Fog' and 'Tattoo' were HUGE clumps. I think Gary and Jack mixed up, because within each clump were 1-2 smaller clumps; making my order more like 5 hosta instead of 3!!! I have ordered twice from them, and have been impressed both times.
Their customer service, OUTSTANDING!
Their quality in plant material, SUPERB!
I will definitely be a repeat, repeat customer!!!

After a hosta buying hiatus, I recently won/purchased 4 hosta from Gary and Jack. Not only were the plants great, they are larger than what I thought (I think they grew during shipping...lol!) Gary and Jack also sent a personal email to me, welcoming me back into the bidding/winning of their hostas. These guys are great, their plants are always great, and as always their customer service is superb.
Here's to me bidding and winning some more :-)

Its nice to be able to share positive experiences for once. I ordered several Arisaemas from Naylor Creek this spring. The tubers arrived so quickly I was almost unprepared for them. They were very large, and so far have produced some impressive plants and flowers. (Especially the griffithii!) Shipping and handling costs were more than reasonable.

I ordered some epimediums as a gift for my father, and Jack got back to me right away to tell me what was out of stock. He was very nice and patient and helpful with finding substitutions. The plants arrived very quickly, and though I haven't seen them myself, my Dad was thrilled with them (like a little kid, said Mom), and said they were good-sized plants and arrived in great shape. Naylor Creek has the best selection of epimediums I've seen anywhere, and decent prices and shipping rates.

My plants arrived on time, well packaged. These are lovely,healthy epimediums. They are nice sized plants now but also they have so much new growth! Within a few weeks these should be very big plants. This is my second order from Naylor Creek. I have been delighted both times.

I did the same thing as the others. Ordered my first from them off the Hosta Library's Auction. Then turned around and ordered a 2nd, and now a 3rd time. (That blasted auction! lol) These guys are great communicators, have great plants,and know how to ship them. You can feel at ease knowing they will not ship out anything that they would not want to receive themselves. I will continue to check their website whenever I am wanting to add hosta's or shade perennials to my garden ! Thanks to a great company that makes my garden beautiful !

I received my first order from Naylor Creek Nursery throught the Hosta Library Auction; lovely! So I did it again, even better! Their plants are so nice, I finally contacted them and now I am ordering directly from their catalog. They are knowledgable and have all the latest. My plants came all the way to Indiana and they never missed a beat. I could not buy better from my local nursery, and certainly not these varieties.

From my experience, Naylor Creek is truly committed to quality and customer satisfaction. Communication is excellent, and plants are high quality. When I did note a problem with a plant (two years after the order), it was immediately replaced.

I recently received a plant I "won" on the hosta library auction page. Much larger and better than I expected, shipped very fast, arrived in perfect condition.

This year I ordered half a dozen hostas from the Naylor Creek Catalog. Communications with the company were excellent, they even accomodated my request to ship the order early because I wanted to plant my hostas before I had to go on a business trip. I am happy with everything that arrived. One plant was smaller than I expected but it is a rare one and seems to be doing just fine in the garden, growing slowly but surely.

These guys are top notch. I can always find the newest additions to the hosta world from Naylor's. They always ship large healthy plants at good prices. Can't go wrong here!

I was a first time customer having dealt with other mail order companies in the past with good results. These people are by far the best. Originally ordered 1 hosta. A couple of days before they were to be shipped, we called to see if we could add to the order. They were very friendly and more than happy to adjust the order. The hostas we received were the biggest we have ever gotten and the packaging was the best. Will definitely do business with again and will tell all my friends about this awesome company. AAA+++

I found this company very very late in the 2007 season, but because they are a local company, I contacted them to see if I could make an order even though it was past their last shipping season. I got a rapid positive response and made a large order of Epimedium plants which was shipped almost immediately. I order from MANY mail order plant sources and these were some of the largest Epimediums I've ever seen. This spring they are all putting up new, fresh growth and E. ogisui is already blooming (lovely white!). I'd order from them again without reservation.

I beleive every rave written here is true and accurate. I have never seen such quaility in mail order plants. These look like something a generous neighbor dug from their own garden and hand delivered to you front door. They are beautiful. I am in Texas and they are in Washington. Every aspect of this transaction was great. Thanks, Gary and Jack.

My friend had been looking for the hosta 'Red Dragon' ever since we saw it in a display garden during the AHS convention in Indianapolis. I ordered one from Naylor's for her birthday. Not only were they the least expensive of anyone else, they also sent big plants with many eyes. I will definately order from them again. I also bought some plants from them while at the convention and they are doing awesome!

I ordered hellebores, epimediums and hostas. These are the largest plants I've received from anyone and packed very well. Communication was excellent and they answered questions I had about plants in a very timely manner which I appreciated. Shipping was timely. What more is there to say? If they carry a hosta or shade perennial I want I will definitely order from them again. Very highly recommended.

I just received my first order from Naylor Creek!!! What took me so long???!!! Multi-eyed hostas were carefully wrapped as were the Hakenochloa and Hellebore. And I do mean carefully. They had told me via email that it's fall and the leaves aren't in good shape, but they look awesome. I ordered on Mon. Columbus Day, a holiday for the PO and I still got em on Thurs. Customer Service is excellent. They answered silly questions for 4 day before I made up my mine what to get. Debbie
