My plants arrived in good shape and a day before I expected them. I love the hosta selection and the company's attention to detail.

I received my 4.5" potted Minute Man hosta very quickly, despite the covid slow down to business. It arrived in great condition. I had a moment of panic when I realized the Post Man had laid the box down rather than standing it upright, but when I opened the box, the hosta was so well cushioned inside that it didn't much matter which way the box had been handled. I am extremely pleased. The hosta looked healthy and vigorous, dirt was in good condition (not dry) and I planted it straight away. It was labelled, and I received planting instructions as well. Will shop there again.

I ordered 2 sweet hostas, milk and honey astilbe and the “Lenten rose” hellebore. Everything arrived looking healthy and well. It was all very carefully wrapped and packed. This was my first order from New Hampshire Hostas. It will certainly not be my last!

I'd never ordered from New Hampshire Hostas, but was happy with my purchase and will return for more plants in the future. The plants I ordered were healthy and carefully packaged for the ride to my home in Virginia. I was impressed with the care taken for the plants. They are now in my garden and doing well.

Just received my first hosta from NH Hostas! Very pleased with my purchase and planted my hosta in my garden right away. Came packed securely and moisture retained. I can't wait to see my wheee hosta grow! Thank you again. I will remember in the future whenever I need more hostas or to suggest to others for speciality hosta purchases.

I recently placed my very first order with NHH: three starter plugs for curbside pickup. The staff were very helpful by email, suggesting I wait a few weeks due to frost worries. When I did pick up, their curbside arrangement went smoothly. The plants were packed securely. When unpacked, the plants all seem good with many strong roots. Few leaves, and a couple of leaves on one hosta have brown patches, but the plants seem very healthy overall so I'm sure they will grow in fine. I'm very pleased with the quality of these plugs, which allowed me to obtain some favorites on a budget. Thank you!

I've been purchasing plants from New Hampshire Hostas for more than 5 years and have always been happy with their plants. I particularly like the selection of heucheras they offer. Five plants arrived today. They are just what I ordered and in great condition, as has always been my experience with NHH.

Fabulous! I've ordered hostas from several other companies but NH Hostas send the freshest, larger and most healthy hostas of them all. The only reason they'd not be my hosta resource for all my hostas is if they don't carry it! I can't say enough good. They are wonderful to deal with and very accommodating and happy to help. The hostas arrive very carefully and completely packaged so that they'll arrive in the best condition possible.

Ordered a selection of Hostas in 4.5in pots. The plants were extremely well-packaged, not a leaf was damaged. I appreciate that they used old newspapers as packing medium, environmentally friendly AND I got to catch up on the local New Hampshire news.
These plants were large, beafy, healthy and well-rooted. I am very impressed. Planted out 1 week ago and they appear to be thriving. I will definitely order from this company again. Highly recommend.

I have ordered several times from New Hampshire Hostas, and each experience has been excellent. Plants arrive in a timely manner, well packed, and very healthy. The plants live and grow beautifully. When I have called the company to ask a question, they are quite helpful and friendly, even during the busiest of times. This is really my favorite online nursery.

I have placed a few orders with New Hampshire Hostas over the years and have nothing but good things to say about them. The website is easy to work with, the plant selection is vast with relevant and informative plant detail, the prices are reasonable, and the customer service is personal and responsive. The plants are meticulously packaged and shipped promptly when the weather permits. And the plants themselves are healthy and beautiful. Highly recommend!

This was my first time ordering from New Hampshire Hostas. I came looking for Hellebores and was surprised by the selection they had. Although I didn't purchase a hosta, my experience with P.J. Beaulier and the nhhosta team makes me consider buying some from them in the future. After placing my pre-order, the manager reached out to me and apologized in advance if they weren't being clear on the shipping timing of my hellebores as some were missing this in their product descriptions. My hellebores came in great condition and were shipped very close to the date that was expressed in the email months before. I've never been happier. Thanks!

My second order from NH Hostas. Happy to report the plants I purchased last year are all up in my garden. This years order arrived exactly when I requested but because of some later than expected frost warnings I've waited to plant them. No problem keeping them looking great in the pots they came in. Already looking for some additional hard to find varieties. Keep up the good work.

I've placed 2 orders with NW Hostas this summer and I'm very pleased! I buy a lot of my plants online because of the convenience.
After seeing them on the Watchdog, I placed my first order. The plants arrived quickly and were in excellent condition. I love hosta (particularly BIG hosta) and finding them locally is impossible. I will be a customer for years to come!!

This was my first time buying a plant online, and I was not sure of how it would work. The clear explanatory video they have on their site made me choose New Hampshire Hostas, and I am happy I did.
I got prompt delivery of my hostas, and the packaging was so carefully done that the leaves did not have a wrinkle! Pricing is reasonable and the plants look nice and strong. I will recommend New Hampshire Hostas to my friends, and come back to them next spring when I start gardening again.

I just planted the hostas so that's all I can comment on so far. The starter plugs had lots of very healthy roots. The 4 inch pots were very healthy looking, tall, green, moist soil and roots. All were very well packed and undamaged. So far I'm very happy with the products. I also bought a fern and only disappointed that there was only one left but at least I got one.

So very happy with my dealings with New Hampshire Hosta. Placed order, which was hard in that their selection is superb. Received order in less then a week. A little apprehensive regarding the 4.5 inch and bare root. Boy was I surprised. The plants were extremely well packed and very healthy. Was concerned over bare root, as I have received other plants this way and was not happy. What a surprise, the health of the roots and top growth was amazing and it made planting so much easier then dealing with a plant you need to loosen and dig out the dirt. Thank you New Hampshire Hostas for having such a dedicated business...

I needed a specific Hosta and this was the first place I went to. Not only because of the reviews, but in the past I needed a Hosta identified, and I got a quick detailed response. This is a big order company, you can tell by how the order is handled. That being said, the hosta arrived wrapped in newspaper like they picked it the day before, which they probably did. I looked at it the other day and I can’t believe how big it already got! There are many varieties of Hosta, look here first.

This was my first experience with NH Hostas and I ABSOLUTELY will order from them again. I ordered about 20 hostas (5 large varieties, 4.5" pot size). Sounds cheesy, but I feel that whoever packed my order did so with love, which explains why my order took some time to ship (ordered May 18, arrived at my Alabama home on June 7). Each plant's bareroot was carefully wrapped (its roots snug in damp newspaper then placed in a plastic bag and secured with a rubber band) and labeled with informative tags, including the plants expected size. Then the plants were gently packed in more newspaper into the box.

The roots were clean and substantial in size. The leaves were all in perfect condition...on average, each plant had about 5 leaves. NH Hostas also included planting instructions and a little brochure. I can't wait to watch these hostas mature around my home.

NH Hostas has varieties of Hosta not found elsewhere. My Hostas and epimidium arrived quickly and were very well packaged. No damage to these great looking Hostas. I am very pleased with the Hosta and that the man who I spoke to was pleasant to buy from. I’ll be buying more from NH Hostas!

Over the course of a few days, I placed 3 separate orders with Dave @ NH Hostas. Communication was terrific; response to emails was very timely and shipment was quick. For those 3 orders, Dave ended up consolidating the 3 into one shipment and refunded shipping costs back to me.

Now, for the products I ordered. I couldn't be happier. Everything I ordered, arrived in great shape. Plants were properly marked and wrapped in wet newspaper.

I will definitely order again!

This is the second time I've ordered from New Hampshire Hostas and I am again very pleased with their plants. I ordered five hostas this time. They were packed perfectly and the hostas were in great shape. Their hosta selection is the best I've ever seen. Everything was exactly as described, with healthy plants shipped at the proper time for planting. I'm so glad I found them!

I ordered months ago and they shipped after our frost date. They were well packaged. I could not plant them right away because of our Florida storms, but put them on the porch, in a sheltered spot and kept the newspaper around the base of each plant. They absolutely loved the rain and our doing quite well in their pots. I will get them planted soon. I ordered four and will order more!

Purchased over 20 hostas from NHHostas. They hold them until there is no longer a chance of frost unless you email them. Purchased in February, now the end of March, our weather has warmed up. I emailed them to see if they could send the plants out early. Got an email within 24 hours and 2 days later on the other side of the US, I received a box full of Hostas. Can't wait to get them planted and see how they look. Will definitely be back for more. THANKS!

I'm in the process of having to replace all the plants in front of my house. The trees in our front yard have grown so much in the last 20 years, that we now have a front foundation that is almost completely shaded. I chose NH Hostas because of their wide selection of hostas. I received my shipment very quickly and the ferns and heuchera I purchased look very healthy. The hostas are going into dormancy, but what I received were packaged well. I was most impressed that they refunded part of the shipping. I decided to make an additional purchase after I had already placed an order and they refunded the majority of the shipping cost on my second order, since I had made the purchases so close together. I didn't even ask if they would...they took the initiative and gave me a $10.50 refund. That says a lot about this business and taking care of their customers.

The first thing I love about this company is the customer service. Here in New England winter was refusing to leave. My plants were due but the ground was still frozen. I called to check on delivery and got the owner who explained how his schedule is being effected by the weather and when I could expect my plants. They arrived just as promised and at a perfect time for planting. They were shipped overnight and came in great shape. I was a little startled by how small they were but fortunately they were going in a new bed and would not get lost in my existing plantings. This order included astilbe, ferns, columbine and two grasses. They are all thriving and beautiful! I will use this company again for more unique plants.
