I recently placed an order Bridgewood Gardens for several Hostas and was impressed with the quick delivery and exceptional quality of the plants when I received them.

Don't know how many orders I placed with Bridgewood Gardens last year ... at least 3 or 4, + 2 orders so far for 2013, which I recently received, which puts me at a grand total of at least 60 different hosta varieties I've ordered from them.

Love this nursery (and Chick's occasional blog/newsletter offerings). I no longer even look anywhere else for hostas. I have many that I got from them over the years-all growing strongly and looking great. I especially like the plant descriptions. I tried a few gold hostas due to their recommendations and now these are some of my favorites. All of their plants have been great-I've never received any plant from them that was less than top quality. Even their late autumn "ugly plant " sale offerings have had robust root systems and grew just great in my garden. Their packing is the best I've ever seen. Obvious care taken with shipping living plants. Top-notch nursery.

I just received my recently placed order and the plants are BEAUTIFUL!. They are larger than the average mailorder plant, and in excellent condition due to the awesome packing job. Bridgewood Gardens, YOU ROCK! I will definitely order from you again.

I absolutely loved my visit to the website. I did read about the move to Va. and Plantation Lily and fell in love.

I ordered from Bridgewood Gardens for the first time - and I'm very pleased with both the quality of the hostas I received and the quick shipping. Lovely!

Ordered twice this season, most recently "The Pot Luck Collection" (15 hostas for $75) and have also bought from their bargain bin and their "half-pint" offerings. Everything is beautifully packed (like Crownsville Nursery, which is somehow related) and the plants are always nice sized (half-pints are smaller) and great quality. Orders ship quickly; I will continue to order from them.

I really wanted hostas despite living in Florida so I ordered from Chick last summer. The hostas were very well-packed with excellent root systems and multiple eyes. This spring, they have all come back with 4 of my plants flowering. Highly recommend.

When I started my Hosts Gardens 4 years ago, Bridgewood was the first place I looked on the internet and I ordered one of their recommended packages and was very happy. I didn't realize it at the time, but Chick was spoiling me for other hosta growers. Bridgewood's plants always come potted, carefully wrapped and perfect! Not a tiny eye wrapped in a paper towel! I would say that at least half of the hosta in my gardens comes from them. When I want a specefic plant, I go to their website first and only go elsewhere if they don't grow it.

Fantastic. I ordered 5 Hostas : Birchwood Parkys Gold, Blue Angel, Fortunei Aureomarginata, Gold Standard and Patriot. They arrived QUICKLY in great condition, ready to plant. The sale that they are running now is great, too. I will be coming back for more. Highly recommended. Great Quality!

I've been on Bridgewood's mailing list for a couple of years, but just received my first order from them today. I have to say that these are absolutely the best hostas I have ever mail-ordered. That's pretty amazing when you consider that it's a mid-summer sale (what they usually call the "ugly plant sale"). The hostas are large with multiple eyes. In addition to hostas, I also ordered a cinnamon fern which was about 3 times the size I expected.

Just received my first shipment of over 20 more new hostas this year and I can't wait to plant them in my ever growing hosta gardens. I did start adding some ferns this year and I'm starting to get addicted to them also. As usual all the plants arrived packaged in beautiful condition. My second shipment was delayed because they had some damage from hail the other night and Chick graciously offered to replace the damaged hostas with a more expensive one at no extra charge to me (or refund my money which I was not interested in at all). The second package will be waiting for me when I get home today. Kudos to Chick and everyone there. Can't say enough good things about the plants.

Like other posts here, my experience with Bridgewood has consistently been wonderful. What impressed me most was that last year a sale started after my order had been placed. Chick gave me a refund and extended the sale price to my order. This was unasked for service and won my loyalty forever.

I have been ordering my Hostas from Bridgewood gardens since 2006 and have never had a quality or shipping problem. The plants are packed with care and shipped quickly. Looking foward to ordering more from them this season :)

I ordered 2 hostas and knew they were going to have only 1 eye. Oh My! What an eye ;o) Both are large with perfect leaves. Shipping was excellent and arrival was perfect. I will always do business with Bridgewood!

I just received hosta 'Korean Snow. Beautiful, healthy plant, great shipping, fantastic packing and Chick is a pleasure to do business with. All the hosta's I've ordered from this company over the years are all beautiful and thriving.

I have also ordered from Bridgewood Garden on line, another nursery whose hosta's are great. It is wise, I think to read these blogs regarding what people have experienced good and bad regarding certain nurseries and which one to definitely stay away from when ordering plants on line.

I just received my first order from Bridgewood and was absolutely delighted with the condition of the hostas, the packaging and the care given to insure their safe arrival. The soil was still moist. Small problem with computer/payment that was quickly resolved, excellent communication. Would buy from again anytime

I have ordered plants from several different gardening places and this is probably the best experience with one that I have had. Plants were still moist and in pots as stated . Shall get to see the results this spring. Good people to deal with. Good communications too.

Ordered 5 hostas in their ugly fall plant sale - all came in 4" pots with good roots, only one did not have roots coming out of the bottom of the pot. Great packing, plants were in their pots with little soil disturbance. Since it was an ugly plant sale there was no foliage - but Ill get to see the beauties next year.

I ordered 11 Hostas on a Tuesday, received the plants on Friday of the same week. All plants healthy and in great condition. And this was an end of summer "Ugly plant sale" where the prices on average were reduced by 40%.

I purchased 17 hostas last week and was very impressed with the size and health of the plants shipped. They look great and were a fantastic value. There were a few damaged leaves on the larger plants which I pinched off. The damage was minimal and the plants were in amazing shape for travelling several days in 90+ degree daily temperatures.

Ordered several hostas which were received three days after ordering. Plants were very well packed with no damage showing on any plant. Easy online ordering with large selection. Would recommend highly.

have used bridgewood for several years now, the owner seems ro be a character and makes the experience fun...with tales of his dogs and down to earth,common sense comments about his profession...I love the on-line catalog as is, plants,timing, packing and shipping are perfect. what i love best is getting decent sized hosta in a smallish pot (but not rootbound) that is easy for an oldish customer to dig a hole for and plant....yeah chick, i love sagae too!!!

I placed two large orders for hostas this year totalling about $350. About half of that order came from Bridgewood.

I always have a good experience here. They ship nice sized plants at a great price. One added bonus is the hostas are shipped in their pots so if the weather isn't agreeing with your schedule all you need to do is water the pots. This place is great!

I have ordered from Bridgewood Gardens in the past and have always been very satisfied with my plants. This year I ordered in January when they have some special offers for shipping on or after April 30. They shipped exactly as requested and this year their hostas are just spectacular. They arrived without a single broken leave, as usual given their great packing process. The plants are all very healthy and good sized, relative to their size in the hosta kingdom. Once again, Bridgewood has exceeded my expectation. Plus their website is kind of fun to read :-))

I ordered about 30 Hostas from Chick. I am not putting up a negative at this point becuase i believe that the problems that I have had nothing to do with the quality of the hostas or the company. I had two boxes one small, one big. The bigger box was pretty destroyed when it got to me and wet. The only damaged hostas that I had from this pitifull box(again not chicks fault UPS Ithink is to blame)were the larger one's i ordered 3 Blue angels and 2 sum or substance. They were pretty much mush by the time they got to me. I have written chick and we'll see what they want to do. BUt otherwise I am totally happy with the rest of my order and will definetley order again since now I have that HOSTA BUG!

Just got my email back from Chick very prompt and he let me know that he is sending out the blue angels and the sum and subtances out today. Again very postive experience and definetley will be ordering again very soon!

Ordered back in February and received over 25 hostas and ferns in April as promised. They arrived packaged very well, healthy and complete. All are in the ground now and thriving. This is the 3rd time I've ordered from them and will be back for more!

Received yet another order from Chick and all were healthy, nice size hostas. They came expertly packaged, moist and were quickly shipped.

Chick is the greatest. I have ordered on several occassions this year, purchased 28 hostas in all. I found them on the whole to be very nice plants. Excellent packing, very fair prices and great sales. Lastet is the 'Ugly Plant Sale'. Can't wait to receive these. The one plant I had an issue with I contacted him on. Chick weighted the situation and deemed I was intitled to a replacement plant. The replacement was very, very nice. The website is full of good information about growing hosta and entertaining to read. Chick has a sense of humor. He refers to himself as "a humble hosta farmer". He knows a great deal about the plant and shares the information.

I have ordered from Chick several times and each time the order arrived quickly and the plants in remarkable shape, even though I mainly order during the "Ugly Plant Sale". I highly recommend his company.

I was/am new to gardening and simply knew that hostas were what I wanted. I ordered from Bridgewood because of their easy to use website & their selection complete with necessary information about the various hostas.

I ordered nine hostas from Bridgewood Gardens this year and I am very pleased with the whole transaction.
