I've placed 2 orders with NW Hostas this summer and I'm very pleased! I buy a lot of my plants online because of the convenience.
After seeing them on the Watchdog, I placed my first order. The plants arrived quickly and were in excellent condition. I love hosta (particularly BIG hosta) and finding them locally is impossible. I will be a customer for years to come!!

This was my first time buying a plant online, and I was not sure of how it would work. The clear explanatory video they have on their site made me choose New Hampshire Hostas, and I am happy I did.
I got prompt delivery of my hostas, and the packaging was so carefully done that the leaves did not have a wrinkle! Pricing is reasonable and the plants look nice and strong. I will recommend New Hampshire Hostas to my friends, and come back to them next spring when I start gardening again.

Very impressed with the quick response from this company, the quality of the plants received and the price selection. Ordered on Monday and had the plants arriving on Wednesday ready to be planted. Can't wait to see them thrive! Will do doing business with New Hampshire Hostas again!

I just planted the hostas so that's all I can comment on so far. The starter plugs had lots of very healthy roots. The 4 inch pots were very healthy looking, tall, green, moist soil and roots. All were very well packed and undamaged. So far I'm very happy with the products. I also bought a fern and only disappointed that there was only one left but at least I got one.

So very happy with my dealings with New Hampshire Hosta. Placed order, which was hard in that their selection is superb. Received order in less then a week. A little apprehensive regarding the 4.5 inch and bare root. Boy was I surprised. The plants were extremely well packed and very healthy. Was concerned over bare root, as I have received other plants this way and was not happy. What a surprise, the health of the roots and top growth was amazing and it made planting so much easier then dealing with a plant you need to loosen and dig out the dirt. Thank you New Hampshire Hostas for having such a dedicated business...

I needed a specific Hosta and this was the first place I went to. Not only because of the reviews, but in the past I needed a Hosta identified, and I got a quick detailed response. This is a big order company, you can tell by how the order is handled. That being said, the hosta arrived wrapped in newspaper like they picked it the day before, which they probably did. I looked at it the other day and I cant believe how big it already got! There are many varieties of Hosta, look here first.

This was my first experience with NH Hostas and I ABSOLUTELY will order from them again. I ordered about 20 hostas (5 large varieties, 4.5" pot size). Sounds cheesy, but I feel that whoever packed my order did so with love, which explains why my order took some time to ship (ordered May 18, arrived at my Alabama home on June 7). Each plant's bareroot was carefully wrapped (its roots snug in damp newspaper then placed in a plastic bag and secured with a rubber band) and labeled with informative tags, including the plants expected size. Then the plants were gently packed in more newspaper into the box.

The roots were clean and substantial in size. The leaves were all in perfect condition...on average, each plant had about 5 leaves. NH Hostas also included planting instructions and a little brochure. I can't wait to watch these hostas mature around my home.

NH Hostas has varieties of Hosta not found elsewhere. My Hostas and epimidium arrived quickly and were very well packaged. No damage to these great looking Hostas. I am very pleased with the Hosta and that the man who I spoke to was pleasant to buy from. Ill be buying more from NH Hostas!

Over the course of a few days, I placed 3 separate orders with Dave @ NH Hostas. Communication was terrific; response to emails was very timely and shipment was quick. For those 3 orders, Dave ended up consolidating the 3 into one shipment and refunded shipping costs back to me.

Now, for the products I ordered. I couldn't be happier. Everything I ordered, arrived in great shape. Plants were properly marked and wrapped in wet newspaper.

I will definitely order again!

This is the second time I've ordered from New Hampshire Hostas and I am again very pleased with their plants. I ordered five hostas this time. They were packed perfectly and the hostas were in great shape. Their hosta selection is the best I've ever seen. Everything was exactly as described, with healthy plants shipped at the proper time for planting. I'm so glad I found them!

I ordered months ago and they shipped after our frost date. They were well packaged. I could not plant them right away because of our Florida storms, but put them on the porch, in a sheltered spot and kept the newspaper around the base of each plant. They absolutely loved the rain and our doing quite well in their pots. I will get them planted soon. I ordered four and will order more!

Purchased over 20 hostas from NHHostas. They hold them until there is no longer a chance of frost unless you email them. Purchased in February, now the end of March, our weather has warmed up. I emailed them to see if they could send the plants out early. Got an email within 24 hours and 2 days later on the other side of the US, I received a box full of Hostas. Can't wait to get them planted and see how they look. Will definitely be back for more. THANKS!

I'm in the process of having to replace all the plants in front of my house. The trees in our front yard have grown so much in the last 20 years, that we now have a front foundation that is almost completely shaded. I chose NH Hostas because of their wide selection of hostas. I received my shipment very quickly and the ferns and heuchera I purchased look very healthy. The hostas are going into dormancy, but what I received were packaged well. I was most impressed that they refunded part of the shipping. I decided to make an additional purchase after I had already placed an order and they refunded the majority of the shipping cost on my second order, since I had made the purchases so close together. I didn't even ask if they would...they took the initiative and gave me a $10.50 refund. That says a lot about this business and taking care of their customers.

The first thing I love about this company is the customer service. Here in New England winter was refusing to leave. My plants were due but the ground was still frozen. I called to check on delivery and got the owner who explained how his schedule is being effected by the weather and when I could expect my plants. They arrived just as promised and at a perfect time for planting. They were shipped overnight and came in great shape. I was a little startled by how small they were but fortunately they were going in a new bed and would not get lost in my existing plantings. This order included astilbe, ferns, columbine and two grasses. They are all thriving and beautiful! I will use this company again for more unique plants.

Ordered several plants which only took three days after ordering to arrive. FedEx delivered to wrong address (frequent occurrence here) but neighbor redelivered the same day. Certainly not the seller\'s fault. High quality plants with about the best packing I\'ve ever seen. Good selection online and easy ordering process.

NH is now in my top 2 nursery websites. Very easy to use website and beautifully setup. I ordered 4 hostas, 3 different types. They came in 4 wide x 5 tall pots, very nicely packaged with tall, wood spikes in each to keep them from sliding in the box. Each plant was tucked in a thick layer of wet newspaper and the plants were placed in the box very carefully with wet newspaper rubberbanded in the top of each pot to keep the dirt in place. They were totally undamaged.
The plants are just gorgeous!! They came out of the box at 8 12 tall, excluding the pots. Multiple leaves and beautiful color. Quite impressive. Will definitely be buying from them in the future with complete confidence!!! I wish I could include a photo of the plants but no option to do so on this website.

I just got three hostas today. Two were supposed to be Royal Standard, and the third Fortunei Aureomarginata. One had a tag for Fortunei, one had a tag for Regal Splendor (wrong hosta), and one had no tag. All three were identical, instead of two being the same and one having green with a margin of color. I ordered the two gallon and these were quite small for such an expense, just two small clumps with about 4 leaves total unless they're late risers. The ball is so small, and the leaves were a little tattered on a few. I can get comparable named hosta here of this size for about $7. I emailed early in day. I'll try calling tomorrow to see if and how they will resolve this. Not happy and likely won't order from them again.
Company representative comment on May 11, 2018:
On May 11, 2018 7:42 AM, New Hampshire Hostas responded with:

We are very sorry for the confusion with this order. We received your email and responded and we will fix this issue. As for the size, the plants are still emerging so judging them now is unfair. They all had several eyes and will make great clumps this season. Once planted and allowed to fully leaf out they are worth every penny. We are not a box store with cheap prices and we stand by our plants. Mistakes happen but we always try to fix them. Sorry you were unhappy with this order but hopefully we can make it right for you! Thank you!

The hosts I ordered came quickly and I couldn't be happier with what I received. Each individually packed with the roots wrapped in wet newspaper and a name tag to identify each one. The were as fresh and crisp as if I had just dug them from the garden. They arrived lickety split except for a SNAFU by the US postal delivery service. I was worried and e-mailed and called and there was always someone that answered the phone and e-mailed me back within 12-24 hours. Customer service by P.J. was marvelous. I have used other companies before but NONE has been as great as this one. I got 10 plants and I got 10 BEAUTIES!

I am so happy with my first order from NH Hostas. Because I live in Washington state, the nursery is required to ship bareroot. When they arrived, the plants had a strong root system and top growth. Since my garden is still pretty wet, I took their suggestion to plant in 4" pots before moving to their permanent location. They arrived within 2 shipping days, amazing! I will be ordering again from NH Hostas.

I've ordered from NH Hostas twice now, and both times they have exceeded expectations. Their plants are just larger and more robust than hostas I've gotten from some of the other well known outlets. And they really do a great job of packaging the orders to protect those big plants while being shipped. I am a total fan of these guys. They do a great job!

My first order with this company and I'm very impressed. The package allowed lots of space and layers of packing material so there wasn't even a bruised leaf to be found. When planting, I found that the 4.5 inch pot held a healthy mass of roots equivalent to the root mass of gallon sized hostas I've previously purchased. I have no doubt it will settle in well.

Highly recommended.

My first order of three hostas arrived in beautiful condition! I had been worried about how they would hold up traveling all the way from New Hampshire to Minnesota. I was amazed at how artfully they were packed! Also, helpful printed information was included. Obviously these people know what they're doing! I won't hesitate to order again.

I am a new customer and I am very happy with the hostas I ordered. They arrived quickly and were well packaged. In fact, the box sat on my dining room table for 3 days and the roots were still moist when I opened the box. There is new growth appearing already. The photos showing the sizes for each type of order is very helpful. I am looking forward to placing my next order!

NO ONE...absolutely no other company....that I have ordered from packs their plants better!!!! I live in Michigan and have ordered from NH Hosta several times. They are in "pots" with sticks to keep them from moving and keep them "in place" in the box. They are packed with so many newspapers that those dear little plants have no room "to wiggle or move" at all!!!! I would order ALL my hostas from them if they carried all the varieties I am seeking. THEY ARE THE BEST....(and no, I didn't get a discount for reporting
