I ordered 4 Hosta on July 13 and they arrived today July 18 via Priority Mail. Their website clearly states they only ship on Mondays to ensure your plants are sitting on a dock over a weekend. On Sunday I got a personal and friendly email stating the plants would ship Monday.

The Hostas arrived with roots still damp and leaves not wilted. Each plant has several leaves and a good amount of roots. Two of the larger plants did have one leaf each slightly damaged, however with how large the clumps are I'm not worried. I was also very happy to see a surprise when I opened the package! An extra Hosta made it into my shipment.

If you are looking for Hostas, this is a great place to start your search. They have a very large selection to choose from and reasonable prices. I will definitely buy from them again.

I was really surprised with the size and roots of the hosta I ordered. They were all large and healthy and in great condition. I am really happy with the order I received and I even went back to their website to order a few more on my wishlist. Great prices, great size. Can't go wrong!

My first order with Avalon Acres was a good experience. Communications, Hostas and packaging all met my expectations, with a bonus Hosta, too. Thank You for the nice Hostas.

We stopped in Avalon Acres while traveling. What a lovely setting. Dennis, the owner was very knowledgable and even shared an eye, from his personal collection, of a Hosta I had been looking for. All his Hosta look healthy and strong.
I will definitly go back and will mail order from him also.

I received my first order from Avalon Acres today and I am very happy with the hostas they shipped. The customer service was fine, good communication, and the plants were packaged very well. They included a bonus plant that was incredible also! I will do business with these folks again.
