I've placed several orders with Hallson Gardens in the past and just received my latest order this week. As usual it was fantastic! Nicely packaged with individual labels for each plant. Large bulbs and huge roots, as well as a very nice bonus. This is by far my favorite mail order nursery. You'll not find better products, better service , or more honest business owners anywhere else. Don't be hesitant to order from Hallson's. I'm sure you'll be satisfied too. :-)

Sometimes it is difficult to find newer cultivars here, so last year when I wanted a Rozanne geranium I ordered from a local co. that picks up plants in Denver. Got a one quart Rozanne for $10. Loved the plant, but this year when I wanted more I went looking for someplace that might be a little better value. Found Hallson, and ordered 3 Rozannes for $7 each. Huge roots, far bigger than my one quart from last year! Also got 3 Mr. Goodbud sedums, again large, healthy roots. And a bonus lily was included. Thanks, guys; I'm happy with the plants, I'm happy with the service, I'm happy with the price!

Today I received my first order from Hallson Gardens.
The lily bulbs were large, healthy, and sprouting. The perennial had an enormous root system and the crown had new growth. The person I spoke with on ordering said he'd go dig one up for me that day. He must have because my order arrived via US mail only 4 days after I placed it.
All items were packed in fine peat in plastic bags, labels included.
I was impressed with the product and the customer service and will definitely order from them again.

This is a wonderful company. The plants I ordered look terrific. The roots of the Hibiscus I received are the largest of ANY plant that I have ever ordered. The ferns and pulmonaria were massive. The packing was done with great care. I am overjoyed with this company. Thank you for the outstanding plants and service.

I just received my order of lily bulbs and some other items. WOW! The packaging was so well organized. All the plants came with a pictured plant tag! The Pulmonaria's and ferns, that i ordered have good size crown and roots. This company is as good as everyone says. They are at the top of my list.

This company amazed me! One of the best online purchasing experience to date for me.

Very courteous and kept me well informed when one set of bulbs were not in on time.

I purchased 30ish Lilium bulbs (this last spring) for my Father-in-law and I and they were in perfect health and as described.

Prices were VERY reasonable IMO, and I will be purchasing from them again.

During their fall plant sale I bought about 4 hostas from them - they arrived in a timely fashion and packed very nicely, all were of good size with good roots.

I ordered 6 Mother Earth iris's, the communication was EXCELLENT. I knew when and what was happening as far as shipping. The plants arrived today-very fast shipping, very well packaged-they are nice big root balls with a decent top of green. I am thrilled! They look healthy as can be. I even got a nice little extra too, will look great in the flower bed. I will for sure order from this company again.

I ordered 5 Bertram Anderson sedum. They were sent bare-root (as made clear in their on-line info); they arrived quickly and well packaged. They've been planted and are doing well. I was truly surprised at the generous size of each plant. There was another sedum included in the order as a bonus. I will do more business with these folks.

This was my first purchase from Hallson and I am already planning my next. I didn't realize that buying from this company could become addictive. It is a pleasure to deal with people who take such pride in their business and care so much about their products.

I have been ordering from Hallson's for years. I placed two orders this year; one in January and one just last week. It arrived today and I couldn't be happier. I actually received orders from two hosta nurseries today and the plants from the other place, which are nice, can't even compare to the ones from Hallson Gardens. Hallson's are double the size with double the leaves.

I have always received healthy plants and never worry about HVX when I order from Hallson's.
I would recommend Hallson Gardens to anyone looking for a single plant or a garden's worth. I only wish they were closer to me. I would love to visit the nursery and really do some shopping.

I did some research on Hallson's before I contacted them. I looked on this site and decided to go ahead and order. Let me say, this is an absolutely wonderful source for hostas. I received beautiful healthy plants and a bonus also. I would highly recommend talking with Chris first, then order away. He's honest with what sizes will be sent and when they ship, they take extreme care in making sure your plants will arrive fresh and looking like they were just dug 10 minutes before you got them. I'm highly pleased with this company and highly recommend them.

If you can only order from one nursery this season... Hallson's the one! Don't hesitate... They're simply the best!!!

Every plant I've received (including their thoughtfully chosen bonus plants) is a winner! I only wish I had a bigger garden.

I ordered for the first time from Hallson's. I was very impressed with the size and quality of their plants. The fact that their hostas are field grown is the primary reason I purchased from them vs. a competitor.

I had a small mistake with my order. Chris remedied the problem quickly and politely. Good customer service is key with me and hard to find these days. I definately will be back.

WOW! I was amazed at the size of these hostas and so healthy and well packaged. I can hardly wait to order more from them. Hallsons is definitely the the ultimate hosta source. And the bonus plant is just as is Holy Mole(was on my wish list). Love the Kiwi Gold Rush I picked out....get this one. It is a big, really bright one and will stand out in the garden.

The lilies are great also and am wanting to order some of their other perennials.

They're having a great sale right now so check it out. Any questions about their plants, just email Chris....he is very friendly and helpful.

Just got my second order of hostas today from Hallsons and am just as happy with this order as the first. BIG plants and packaged so well. Also received another bonus hosta which I'm really pleased with...Nightlife. Thanks, Chris!

This is the first hosta I've ordered from Hallson's and I'm SO impressed! It was much bigger than I have received from other mail order sources. The way they package it is ingenious and virtually assures success when planting. All the soil is removed and the roots wrapped in a wet paper towel. Then it's put into a plastic bag (not a Ziploc -- far too expensive) and sealed. No disturbance at all in shipping, which was priority mail. My mail carrier knocked on my door when it was delivered and I was able to plant it right away. It's larger than the same hosta I lost to drought a few years ago. I was pointed to Hallson's by somebody on the Hostas forum, so it was a reliable reference. You can't be too careful these days with HVX popping up at big box stores and mail order nurseries alike.

If you want perfect hostas, buy from Hallson's. Oh, and they sent me a beautiful lily bulb as a bonus. A little late to plant, since my all-container garden is full, but I appreciate very much their thoughtful gesture.

Hallson offers the most gorgeous plants. My hibiscus plants were so huge it was unreal. So healthy with new shoots popping out everywhere. The bare root ostrich ferns I ordered are already a foot tall in less than 3 weeks. I was so impressed that I placed a second order and got that shipment in 2 days. The complimentary plants that Chris tucks in are so great. I have ordered off of Dave's other Top 20 but Hallson is by far the best. My hosta, ferns, hibiscus, and perennials are THRIVING. Exceptional customer service. Highly recommended.

I received my first order from Hallson this week. Unfortunately, for another company, their order arrived on the same day. The comparison was unbelievable. Hallson beat the other company hands down in packing, instructions, and oh, the plants.

My hostas from Hallson were up to 8 inches tall, with almost that much in root, too. Their plants were exceptional.

The other company had sent one that was not even up 2 inches and had little roots, and their prices were higher!

I plan on doing all of my Hosta business at Hallson. And will definitely check their other selections.

Ordered from Hallson Gardens on Jan 21, 2008 for an order in zone 7a. Knew I was ordering late, but had trouble with another company (wish I had found DG long ago). Was surprised to find they still had enough stock to completely fill my order (about 45 lillies). Order was placed and within 30 minutes I received my e-mail receipt, confirmation and expected ship date. After having the ship date come and go (mid March), I sent them an e-mail as to the status and within 15 minutes got a return phone call. Seems Mother Nature decided to drop a late season foot of snow! Chris offered to split the order into two shipments based off what they had in the coolers and what had to be dug later. Got the USPS tracking e-mail 2 days later (next day was Sunday) and had the bulbs in hand 4 days later. Bulbs came very well packed, in individual bags and with garden tags for each variety. They even threw in a couple of "bonus" bulbs of a variety I didn't order...nice touch. Wish I could post pictures here since these are some of the biggest bulbs with plenty of roots that I have seen in quite a while. All in all from finding Hallson Gardens on the DG Top 30, to the order and the product arriving everything couldn't have gone better. Hopefully the product will grow as promised and if not, I have confidence they would make it right. I would definitely recommend them to friends!

This was my first time ordering plants by mail, and was very pleased with the results from Hallsons Gardens. My daylilies were nice size fans, with strong root systems, and the tops freshly cut and green. I also received a wonderful bonus daylily with my order, 'Barbara Mitchell', which I was very surprised and excited to get. Their prices are very reasonable, and I also received an email of when my order was shipped. Can't be more happy with this company. Definitely looking forward to placing more orders with them in the future!

This is the first time I have purchased thru Hallson's. Absolutely great experience! Ordered again a few weeks ago. Same great experience!

Purchased only hostas. They were extremely healthy with very large root systems. Chris is very helpful with advice and great customer service. Hallson's is also very proactive in the effort to control the HVX virus being spread throughout hostas, and I feel very confident of the plants I purchase there. Will most definitely buy there again, and recommend them very highly!

First time to order hostas by mail. They were shipped priority-on Saturday of a holiday week, no less, and arrived Tuesday carefully wrapped and lovely big plants. Came with good instructions and a note on my order, and a free lily as well. Great experience! It's easy to tell they really care about their plants and their customers. I'll try my best to give my new hostas the TLC they're used to.

Due to my complete satisfaction with last year's shipment, I placed a large order with this company this spring - varied perennials including hostas, astilbes, daylilies, heuchera and many others. The plants were shipped exactly when requested and arrived in perfect condition. Everything is growing well. The hostas are larger than some I purchased elsewhere two years ago.

Order with confidence from this quality company. I have ordered from numerous mail-order locations, and they are simply the best.

I have never ordered from Hallson's before, but have received plants from a number of different hosta suppliers. The order that I got yesterday was among the best that I have received through the mail. Well packaged, large plants and what I thought was a reasonable price.

I placed my first order at Hallson's in early spring and requested that shipping be delayed until April 30 since I would be out of town. Then I emailed an addition to my order. Everything was handled exactly as requested -- the addition to my order was shipped along with everything else and the timing was perfect. The plants are beautiful, most are much larger than expected. Information sheets on planting each different kind of plant as well as a "bonus" plant were unexpected and very nice extras. It was great to be able to refer to the included instructions as I was planting instead of running into the house to consult a book or the internet. I will definitely order again, probably this year.
