This is my first time ordering from Hallson Gardens. They are just as fantastic as everyone has said.

Excellent packaging:

Labeled and nicely wrapped, measures about 18"

But wait, there's roots to measure, looks like 24"

Ah yes, the bonus everyone was talking about, 'Red Alert'! For me it will be just the right size at maturity.

I'm very pleased with the experience. I wrote Hallson an email to let them know that the hosta arrived safely and how happy I am. I have a huge wish list saved on their website for Spring. It'll help me survive cabin fever round about January :-)

Whoa ... look at the size of that bonus plant! Nice hostas with great roots! Looks like you like the red stems too!

Yes, the bonus plant is an unexpected pleasure. Red stems are neat! If I am to be limited to smaller/fewer hosta, I'd like a variety.

The roots spread out nicely over the "cone" I made while planting.

I hope the blooms don't drop off or wilt, but being fresh transplants, that's asking a lot.

I always liked Hallsons' plants. Those large roots will establish the plants quickly for the winter and will create a wonderful spring.

Almost better than Christmas! OK maybe it is better sometimes lol. Great looking set of plants. You did a sweet job of planting them up too. One cannot do wrong with Hallsons. Paula

I echo everyone's sentiments on Hallson's. I got a huge order from them about a month ago. Several of them had scapes which have since grown and flowered. Good sized plants and they are all doing great in the ground. Enjoy your new hosta and give us more pics next year.

The package has a familiar look to it! :)
The plants also have a resemblance to those I've welcomed home. I've exclaimed aloud at what I find upon opening a box of goodies from Hallson. And no one anywhere around, just me, so bringing my appreciation to the Hosta Forum to share, is a must. Who better to know what it means to another gardener....

Outstanding-looking Hostas....I have an order coming (hopefully) today from New Hampshire Hostas, who, the previous 2 times I've ordered from them, have been great, but I think next season I'll have to order some from Hallson. I have heard nothing but great reviews from them, and their plants are HUGE, and look just as healthy as NHHostas' do. In fact, I'm gonna go browse Hallson's website right now!(Be strong, Don...Just browse LOL)!! Later today I'll take some pics of NHH's stock when they arrive, just as an FYI for anyone who isn't familiar with 'em. Enjoy!

Oh my goodness. . you just had to show a picture of that box. My fingers started to itch, my heart rate went up. . I'm trying so hard to be good and you had to show that box. . . .arrrrggggggg I could unpack a box of hosta all day. . I wish I had an order that would take me a whole day to unpack and plant. . .

Oh man, Ken, you are so right. There is nothing so great as getting hostas in the mail. . . ENJOY DEB! BEAUTIFUL PLANTS!
