Cindy was great with any and all question we had about the shipping and buying process. My mother loved the new hostas she got. The white feathers one was a hosta she'd only seen images of and cannot wait to see it established next year at its fullest.
Plan on buying from Hosta Fever again for certain

This was such a great experience. Cindy was exceptional, and filled my order better than I expected. I was impressed that one hosta I had requested did not meet her standards, so it was not included in the order. Now that's a responsible and thoughtful seller! The plants are wonderful and I certainly plan on ordering in the future.

Thank you Cindy!!!

The seller explained the process of buying to me in great detail, and was very helpful offering suggestions according to my preferences, as I like variegated, and tri-colour hostas. The package arrived much sooner than expected, and the hosta plants were in healthy condition, with deep, well-established roots. Worth the experience, worth the planting, and the seller was so pleasant and helpful.

As a plant 'collector' (addict), I mail ordered many types of plants extensively over many years. My first experience with Hosta Fever is very satisfying; healthy good size plants and reliable services.

Very, very pleased. The hosta I received was a beautiful specimen – much larger than I had expected you would be able to send in the mail. It was in excellent condition and very carefully packaged.

I ordered a large number of quality Hostas. I received prompt & helpful information. Cindy was wonderful to deal with, and let me know exactly when I would be receiving my Hostas.
When the Hostas arrived the were packaged perfectly, and were large and healthy.
I would recommend Hosta Fever to everyone

I found Hosta Fever on line. What a great find! Cindy was very helpful and cheerful. I ordered the Empress Wu hostas and they arrived in great shape. They look great in my garden. Thank you to Cindy and the staff for their enthusiasm and hard work. I will be shopping here again in the future.

Cindy is wonderful to do business with and I was very happy with the hostas I received. There is quite a selection of hostas to choose from and the ones I received were beautiful plants. I received my order very quickly and the plants were in top notch condition. I would definitely recommend Hosta Fever.

The hostas I received from Host Fever were in great shape even though I live on Vancouver Island, British Columbia and they were shipped from Ontario. The service I experienced from Cindy was exceptional. I would recommend this business to other gardeners who are interested in hostas,

I found Hosta Fever thanks to Google. It was late in the season and I wasn't expecting to be able to still get anything I was really interested in for my new gardens. I called Cindy and was pleasantly suprised that there were still plants available. Her prices were great and Cindy was so awesome to deal with. My plants arrived just yesterday and all were in excellent condition and still very damp in their special packaging. Some were alot larger than I had expected, and yes, she slipped in an extra for me too. I can't wait to put my order in for next year. I am only sorry I don't live close enough to visit Cindy's gardens in person. Can't say enough good things about Cindy and Hosta Fever!

Cindy is a first class act and I really appreciated her communications (by telephone). I have ordered hundreds of plants on line from various suppliers, but this one ranks at the very top in terms of ensuring customer satisfaction. It was refreshing to be treated like this. I received my hostas within several days, they were in great shape on arrival and exactly as described on the phone. Each plant root was wrapped with moist tissue paper and, in turn, it was wrapped with a plastic bag, then the entire plant was wrapped in newspaper, folded and taped shut at the top end. She even provided wire on labels with the hostas name marked on it so that it could be readily attached (to a stake) during planting. The last touch, but special touch, is that I received a few extra plants because of my large order and, as she explained, some were a bit small (she didn't have to do that). Other suppliers should take notice! Customer satisfaction = repeat customer business + new customers. Customer dissatisfaction = not likely to return (+ bad reputations are contagious to other potential customers).

Cindy was great, this is my first time ordering from Hosta Fever, my
order came on time in fact very early, well packed and labeled, I will
certainly be ordering again and most of all I will be visiting her Hosta garden.
Thanks Cindy,

I did business with Hosta Fever for the second time this year and it was just as pleasant as the first time. Cindy is at her business tracking down orders and making sure the plants are to your expectations. Hostas I received were very well packed again this year and all alive. They now recover well in my garden...

I was told about Hosta Fever by a friend and I was very impressed with the website and the huge number of hostas available. The pricing is very reasonable and ordering was very easy. Cindy was most helpful and gave me some tips on acclimatizing my plants when they arrived. The plants I received were big, beautiful and really fresh looking.

I will be ordering from Hosta Fever again, no doubt about it.

My second year of orders. Service is very prompt, caring and most amicable. The plants are excellent, though a bit on the small side. Definitely a place to buy

Because of the HVX, I had all but given up collecting Hostas, then I met Cindy owner of Hosta Fever. Cindy is dedicated to selling strong, healthy Hostas, free of the HVX. I live very close to Hosta Fever and have spent many hours in her garden. I love this place.

I ordered from Hosta Fever for the first time this year. Received fine healthy plants two days after shipping (superb when you consider they were shipped across 3/4 of the country). I was very pleased with the size of the divisions I received, some of the larger (at maturity) plants having 5 eyes. Great communication, a really thoughtful and involved supplier. Highly recommended.

My first experience with ordering through Hosta Fever and I have to say I'm very impressed. Prompt, friendly and efficient service. Receiving the hostas; they were packaged excellently with name tags and moist considering the sweltering heat. I definitely recommend this company. Kim A from Stoney Creek, Ontario.
