Land of the Giants streaker order :)

Kate1970(7a)August 14, 2014

Jeff Miller was a really great sport. I placed this order while I have been at home recovering from a concussion which has caused some short term memory issues along with other things. Needless to say he never once missed a beat or complained when I emailed him that I somehow ordered hosta Nancy Minks, when I really wanted Brave Attempt. Or when I told him 3 times I wanted Allan P. McConnell when I really wanted Allen C Haskell.

I more than likely would have lost patience with me if I were in his shoes. Not only was he super nice and accommodating, he even sent me a 'Dorothy Benedict' as a get well gift! Wow! Dorothy Benedict is the reason I got into hostas! I saw a picture of a fully grown DB and the rest is history.

I have read about Jeff Millers generosity with others on several occasions. I was fortunate enough to experience it first hand today. :)

Getting ready for a soak.

Sir Richard

Dorothy Benedict

Brave Attempt was already taped up.

Allen C. Haskell was also taped up before I remembered to get a photo.

And last but not least. Sea Prize, this might be my favorite one yet.

Another shot of Sea Prize temporarily propped up against some hellebores.

Any experience, photos, growing/light suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Can't wait to get in the dirt tomorrow.

First off, best of wishes to you and here's to a full and speedy recovery.

Secondly, I too have had great experiences with Jeff and love his great service and hosta's. You have a great selection there and now I'll have to add on to my land of the giants order next week ! Sir Richard is the only one I have from your order so I don't have any real advice for you. Good luck with your new additions and enjoy that beautiful gift from Jeff! I'm ordering Dorothy Benedict next week after seeing yours. Thanks go sharing.

Mac thanks so much for the well wishes. I don't think you will be disappointed with DB. Here's hoping I can find a spot where she flourishes!

Mac I don't believe you will be disappointed! This is so exciting, I like being an enabler! Usually I am the one drooling at everyone else's photo's while reaching for my debit card. :P

I can resist anything............except temptation. And you just had to tempt me with your hosta's! It's all good though. If I can pry Gunthers Prize and Blizzard from Jeff I'll really be happy.

Oh man I'll look forward to those pictures Mac, I have eyed both Blizzard and Gunthers Prize several times. I need more property/shade!
