I ordered from them last September (Sept. 2020.) I received fabulous hostas -- all of them were very big and very healthy. They were well-packed and delivered fast! Just great to deal with. Will order more hostas this year.

It was hard to order a helleborus because all stock is
depleted... THAT IS except for New Hampshire Hostas.
My plant arrived quickly, well packaged and looks very
healthy.. I have it potted up and it looks like it is adapting
well... Will order from them again!

Ordered from NH Hosta for the first time last week, the garden watchdog’s reviews are accurate!

This late into the planting season I was a little nervous at the appearance of the plants, as I have received many a horrible looking ones from other sites. But NH Hosta’s plants arrived speedily and packed to perfection. All the plants were of such good size, the plugs of hellebores that I ordered were larger in size compared to the other 4, 6” potted ones. I also love the fact that no items were sold out or unavailable, I have had so many bad experiences when I have purchased the plants months ahead yet when they shipped few of the plants were unavailable, all plants from my order arrived, and I am seriously impressed! I also have to compliment on NH Hosta’s selections, I had so much fun just browsing through the epimediums and the hellebores!

I cannot wait till your heucheras are available! I will keep returning as a loyal customer!

This was my first order with this company. I knew nothing about them except that they had the ferns I wanted available.
We are new to this area, coming from NYC with little outdoor experience. We have a lot of deer and other animals here and the plants we had here have been chewed down etc.
I learned that Ferns are disliked by deer and the area is near the woods and shady. I wanted smaller ferns and a variety.
From reading I selected a number of Ferns and New Hampshire hosta
happened to have them all. I chose the ferns I wanted and called to ask some questions about them. They were very helpful and gave me some good advise. After I placed my order I called back and asked if I could add another fern to the order. They checked and it was possible. It was added to the order and they arrived the same week. Everything was well packed and the plants looked every healthy. Also appreciated the reasonable shipping charge. This was a really good online experience and I appreciate all the help.

Ordered three hostas and a fern. The shipment arrived promptly with everything carefully packaged and all root systems kept moist. The four plants are now in the ground and they are all thriving. I am in the process of planning a large shade garden in front of my house, and will definitely order again from NH Hostas.

Purchased 5 hostas from NH Hostas.
I wasn’t the wisest because I ordered them in August to be delivered to California. (Some gardeners can be desperate to get new gardens completed. 😃).
In spite of the heat, the plants arrived in perfect shape. A good size for the size I ordered. All planted and doing well.
NH Hostas is now on my list of mail order nurseries - already planning my next purchase.

I purchased some blue hostess and Tokyo ferns from New Hampshire Hostas and was delighted by both the product and the service. The ferns started growing immediately and are so natural and beautiful. I actually planted some in my bathroom as well as in a shady spot in my yard and all plants look exquisite. The blue hostas are also lovely and something you wouldn't find in a local nursery. They were carefully wrapped with planting instructions and very healthy and well-cared-for plants. They are also a local family co. which I really like.

I ordered four hostas. They came in just two days and in excellent shape. All are healthy and beautifully leafy with some blooming already. I was so excited and impressed that I ordered four more.
I will definitely order from New Hampshire Hostas again!

Ordered one mini hosta from this company as a first time buyer. There was accurate communication regarding shipping and delivery times. My perfect plant was carefully packed to prevent damage and it made the trip successfully! The soil was still damp and the accompanying information sheet was very helpful. It has settled into its new home and is doing very well. What a positive experience!

I received my 4.5" potted Minute Man hosta very quickly, despite the covid slow down to business. It arrived in great condition. I had a moment of panic when I realized the Post Man had laid the box down rather than standing it upright, but when I opened the box, the hosta was so well cushioned inside that it didn't much matter which way the box had been handled. I am extremely pleased. The hosta looked healthy and vigorous, dirt was in good condition (not dry) and I planted it straight away. It was labelled, and I received planting instructions as well. Will shop there again.

I'd never ordered from New Hampshire Hostas, but was happy with my purchase and will return for more plants in the future. The plants I ordered were healthy and carefully packaged for the ride to my home in Virginia. I was impressed with the care taken for the plants. They are now in my garden and doing well.

I recently placed my very first order with NHH: three starter plugs for curbside pickup. The staff were very helpful by email, suggesting I wait a few weeks due to frost worries. When I did pick up, their curbside arrangement went smoothly. The plants were packed securely. When unpacked, the plants all seem good with many strong roots. Few leaves, and a couple of leaves on one hosta have brown patches, but the plants seem very healthy overall so I'm sure they will grow in fine. I'm very pleased with the quality of these plugs, which allowed me to obtain some favorites on a budget. Thank you!

I've been purchasing plants from New Hampshire Hostas for more than 5 years and have always been happy with their plants. I particularly like the selection of heucheras they offer. Five plants arrived today. They are just what I ordered and in great condition, as has always been my experience with NHH.

Fabulous! I've ordered hostas from several other companies but NH Hostas send the freshest, larger and most healthy hostas of them all. The only reason they'd not be my hosta resource for all my hostas is if they don't carry it! I can't say enough good. They are wonderful to deal with and very accommodating and happy to help. The hostas arrive very carefully and completely packaged so that they'll arrive in the best condition possible.

Ordered a selection of Hostas in 4.5in pots. The plants were extremely well-packaged, not a leaf was damaged. I appreciate that they used old newspapers as packing medium, environmentally friendly AND I got to catch up on the local New Hampshire news.
These plants were large, beafy, healthy and well-rooted. I am very impressed. Planted out 1 week ago and they appear to be thriving. I will definitely order from this company again. Highly recommend.

I have ordered several times from New Hampshire Hostas, and each experience has been excellent. Plants arrive in a timely manner, well packed, and very healthy. The plants live and grow beautifully. When I have called the company to ask a question, they are quite helpful and friendly, even during the busiest of times. This is really my favorite online nursery.

I have placed a few orders with New Hampshire Hostas over the years and have nothing but good things to say about them. The website is easy to work with, the plant selection is vast with relevant and informative plant detail, the prices are reasonable, and the customer service is personal and responsive. The plants are meticulously packaged and shipped promptly when the weather permits. And the plants themselves are healthy and beautiful. Highly recommend!

This was my first time ordering from New Hampshire Hostas. I came looking for Hellebores and was surprised by the selection they had. Although I didn't purchase a hosta, my experience with P.J. Beaulier and the nhhosta team makes me consider buying some from them in the future. After placing my pre-order, the manager reached out to me and apologized in advance if they weren't being clear on the shipping timing of my hellebores as some were missing this in their product descriptions. My hellebores came in great condition and were shipped very close to the date that was expressed in the email months before. I've never been happier. Thanks!

My second order from NH Hostas. Happy to report the plants I purchased last year are all up in my garden. This years order arrived exactly when I requested but because of some later than expected frost warnings I've waited to plant them. No problem keeping them looking great in the pots they came in. Already looking for some additional hard to find varieties. Keep up the good work.

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.

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...
