I have been ordering from Direct Source Hostas for years with great satisfaction. Clean, healthy and good size plants. Extremely well packaged. Nice customer service - prompt and friendly email replies. User-friendly web site with lots of hostas in a wide range of prices. I've tried other mail order companies over the years, but none compare. (Ambergate Gardens is a distant second.)

I stumbled across Dave's Garden site after being "burned" by an on-line company. I fortunately read fabulous reviews on Direct Source Hostas. I placed my first order last week. I am thrilled with the quality of their plants, their respect for me as a customer, and the fast shipment of my order. They will DEFINITELY be my first choice when planting additional hostas. You put the fun back into ordering nursery items on-line. Thanks!

Ordered three hostas in early April. They arrived in a timely fashioned and were packaged extremely well. They've been in the ground for a month now and are growing like weeds! Highly recommend.

i belong to a community garden and live in the city but do not trust package deliveries at my building. i have my plants shipped to a suburban address, i then pick them up (usually 3-5 days after their arrival), bring them to my apartment in the city and unwrap them. the next day i carry them to work in a structured grocery bag and walk to the garden after work to plant them. direct source hostas' plants arrived well packaged and in EXCELLENT condition; so excellent that they survived being knocked over and stepped on by my boss (the leaves literally have the pattern of the bottom of his sneakers on them). i also have to comment on their great selection, i do not care very much for what i consider to be traditional hostas, green leafed/lavendar bloomed; can't really stand them. i do however have shady areas that need plants. there were so many choices i almost wish i had more shade (almost) :)

Great company. These were the best packaged mail order plants I have ever received. The hostas were in great shape on arrival and the pots let me plant when convenient. The hostas are now thriving. The Drinking Gourd hosta is adorable.

This was the first time I ordered from Direct Source Hosta. I ordered four hosta's since it was the first time. They arrived in excellent condition, at the right time for planting and have already begun to grow. These have been the best Hostas I have ordered and will order from this company again.

First time I have ordered from Direct Source Hostas, and my Hostas arrived in top condition. I will order from this company again, even though it is quite a ways from my state of UTAH. Great personal service in choosing Hostas for a few difficult spots in my garden as well as for fragrant, white flowering Hostas for my White garden.

I have ordered many hostas from Direct Source Hosta. They are always in great shape when they arrive. Shipping in pots is the best.
I plant when I have time. Usually I just leave them in their pots and put the plant, pot and all, in the garden for a year or two, until they have a great root system. Now, if I can only stop the voles from eating the roots I would be a much happier hosta lover. I will continue to buy from Direct Source as long as I have some grass left in my yard, of which there is not much grass left. Direct Source is tops in my book.

Fantastic hosta's with great service, what more could one ask for?

This is my second year with Jerry at Direct Source Hostas and I have not been disappointed.
The quality of his hostas is top notch and he means it when he says that he wants "Your 100% Satisfaction!"
So, as I have said before... "What more could one ask for?"

This was my first order with Direct Source Hostas and it won't be my last. Plants arrived in perfect condition, very healthy and beautiful. They are all thriving wonderfully. Hosta 'Fantabulous' was huge! It made an instant impact in my garden. The two "Fireworks' I ordered were a great size with many eyes, wow, what gorgeous dwarf hostas they are. Thank you so much Jerry and Grace.

On June 10th, 2009, Cheryl8 added the following:

I placed an order with Direct Source Hosta because I just couldn't pass up the free hosta they offered through an email I received from them. The hosta I ordered, 'Cherish' is adorable, quite a good (large) size for a mini. I was very impressed! The free hosta katsagurawa beni is gorgeous! Wow, I love it!
I expected a small one eye hosta since it was free. Boy, was I wrong! The hosta was huge! Packaged perfect and very fast shipping. If you want big, beautiful, healthy hostas, Direct Source Hostas is the place to be. Thanks.

I have ordered from Direct Source Hostas for several years and wouldn't think of ordering hostas from any other mail order source. The selection is excellent, especially since I don't have a wide selection available in my local nurseries. I feel the prices are reasonable. Packing is excellent - all arrive in great condition - and the price for shipping is better than most mail order companies I order from. Every hosta that I ordered this year & in previous years are doing great in my garden.

I have been ordering from Direct Source Hostas for 3 years and have always been satisfied. One hosta did not make it over the winter the first year, and they replaced it free with a small, leftover plant of the same variety. This one survived and is now doing as well as all the others. Very good, reliable company.

There was a slight glitch in my order which I probably would not have noticed or questioned, but Jerry did and wrote to me about it. I called him directly; he knew who I was: why I was calling: and how he would like to fix the problem. I followed his suggestions and he rewarded me with extra plants - free!!!!

This was my third year of ordering from Direct Source Hosta and I have yet to be disappointed with their service and plants. I have ordered from other internet sites and found that the plants were weak, small for the money I paid and if they were out of the item, I got a credit to use at their site on my next order. (Like I really want to spend more money there!)

Being able to give this company feedback excited me as I feel they deserve credit for all they have done since their beginning years. I went back to check their negatives and feel that since they were given in their infancy, I could understand a couple of problems. Obviously they have corrected problems and continue to improve their site on a regular basis. Since I'm really not a computer flash, I appreciate the simplicity of Direct Source's web site and have found it to be most helpful when I'm checking out what I want to add to several of my hosta gardens.

This year I ordered 10 new "kids" and when the order arrived on the 7th of May, I was excited to see what they looked like live. Beautiful as usual, healthy and packed as if they were one of a kind. They did run short of two in my order and as usual, a check was in the shippment and not a credit to order next time. I just had fun and picked out a couple more "kids" and they just arrived this week, looking just as healthy as the others.

Buy with confidence and enjoy the many varities D.S.H. has to offer. You'll come back again and again. J.& G. you are doing a wonderful job...many thanks for all you do.

This was my first order from DirectSourceHostas, but based on the positive comments here on Dave's Garden, I felt confident...and I have been very pleased!

I ordered 10 different hostas, and all arrived in excellent shape, having been packaged very carefully. All of the plants were just starting to leaf out when they arrived, and within a week 9 of the ten were full of lush green foliage.

I did have one that didn't seem to be performing very well, and unlike the others was still very small after three weeks in the ground. I sent a quick email to Jerry, and he had me a replacement plant on my doorstep within 4 days! The new one looks great just like the others!

Jerry's plants are healthy, have very good size, and he stands behind his product...All for a very reasonable price. You can't go wrong with DirectSourceHostas!

I have recently found out I am a "hosta addict"...I have received two shipments of hostas from Direct Source in the last month to assuage this compulsion. Both shipments arrived beautifully packed and looked great...I can hardly wait to see how these babies fill out in their new home (and of course order more!). Jerry's company does a terrific job...I wish they were in Georgia!
