Fantastic service. Received an email confirming my order the same day and letting me know when to expect shipment. Received my order 3 days after placing my order and the packaging was great.

Posted on May 19, 2011, updated June 3, 2011
After I read the previous comments reagarding 'In The Country Garden & Gifts', I placed an order for 4 heuchera (Autumn Leaves, Cherry Cola, Ginger Peach & Midas Touch. The plants arrived healthy and in good shape. I was a bit hesitant at first as the plants were to be shipped unpotted. But to my surprise they came in great shape. I will be purchasing again from this vendor.

I placed and received two more orders of Heuchera's and Heucherella's. All of the plants arrived in good shape. I am extremely pleased and will order again.

My plants came today and they are beautiful and big! I was very pleased with the plants and the prices. I found the same plants on another site for almost twice the money. I will be ordering more plants from you in the future.

I ordered three heuchera and brunnera from Josh and the plants, though smaller than expected, are doing great. They are all doing very well in their new homes and have put on some new growth. They came with their root balls with bit of moist soil, wrapped in moist paper and then wrapped in plastic in very good condition. He answered my emails promptly and sent my plants when he said he would. The prices on the plants were the cheapest I could find anywhere through the mail and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from this company again. Thanks Josh!

This is my third year (and order) from Josh and I will always buy plants from him. The heuchera are some of the best priced out there and they are nice, healthy plants and don't come to me puny. I bought 'Captain's Adventure' hosta from him this year, the first time I've ordered a hosta from Josh and it was much bigger than I expected. I was expecting a little two-year-old from TC plant. It's going to replace the 'Tattoo' hosta I lost, at the front of the narrow bed along my front patio so it'll be the first plant in the bed all who stop buy will see. Great plants, great company, I will always by from In The Country.

Received healthy green nice sized plants promptly after ordering. Received on Thursday just in time for weekend planting (nice timing). Shipping doesn't appear to be a profit center for them (which I really like) as opposed to others where the shipping costs as much as the plants! Are the hostas at your local garden center bigger and cheaper? Of course they are but the locals don't have Devil's Advocate or Empress Wu. In fact there aren't many mail order nurseries that have both of those which is how I found them in the first place. Great selection, great customer service, great plants.

This is the second year I have ordered plants from Josh and I am always happy with the plants and the service I get. My garden is getting very full by now but as long as I see something I like in his site, I can usually find a, place for it! The latest, Mourning Dove was bought at the request of my grandson who is 9 and "into birds" right now. He was here yesterday when it arrived and was impressed by the size of the plant you sent. So was I! Thanks Josh!

"In The Country" was recommended by a friend who was pleased with her purchases. My plants arrived quickly, and were well packaged. All were good-sized, and with well developed roots. Can recommend this company without hesitation, and will definitely purchase from them again.

I ordered "The Hostapedia" as a Christmas gift from my family to me. Due to individual schedules we have to hold our family gathering early this year. Time was tight and the order was short notice, but Josh came through with my "gift" arriving with time to spare. Josh sent an email letting me know when it was shipped and included a tracking number so I could follow the progress. A great first order experience!
I also have a hosta order placed for next spring and am looking forward receiving that.

I wish there was a higher rating than 'positive'. Something like OUTSTANDING would be a much better description of Josh's company.
I just recieved the plants I ordered from Josh, and they are OUTSTANDING. The biggest, healthiest and best packed plants I have recieved yet.
Thanks so much for another great plant order Josh!

Will do business again, and again!

I ordered hostas from In the Country. They shipped very promptly and arrived very quickly after shipping. The plants were very well packed and looked no worse the wear for their trip.

The quality of the plants was great! All 3 with very nice root systems and healthy, substantial top growth.

Great communication and easy to navigate website.

Thanks, Josh! We'll do this again! :)

I visited earlier in the season, dropping in completely unannounced without any real agenda on what hostas I wanted. Josh was extremely patient and we dug a few that I wanted on the spot. Everything I have is thriving. I especially love my Savannah Supreme and Sunshine Glory!

The Plants arrived very neatly packed and a GREAT Root

Josh is a great seller. Very honest with fair prices. I bought N. Midnight Embers from him. The plant was big, healthy, and pest free with several buds. It was well packed and shipped fast. I would do repeat business with him in a minute!
