Beautiful gardens - Worth a visit. Went during Canada Day Sale - good deals, healthy plants.
Spoilt for choice especially for hemerocallis and hosta, good idea to look at website and photos
before going. Haven't tried mail ordering because I'm only an hour's drive away.

Thank you for the prompt service. My hostas arrived in excellent condition and are now resting comfortably in their new home. The plant material is everything you describe on your site and a lot more. Great plants, great service. Thanks so much. I now have to build another garden so I can order more plants from you. Thanks again Phil

Subject: hosta order
Hi there! I just wanted to let you know that my plants arrived as promised on Monday. How beautiful they are!!!!!! I have NEVER seen such healthy root balls in my life. The only drawback I had was that I was at work when they arrived
so Canada Post ignored all instruction on the box and left the box standing on its end in the sun. So not only were my babies boiling but they were all mushed to one end of the box. A testament to the strength and health of your plants, they seem to be
doing much better this morning all but one have settled in nicely. The one that got mushed the worst is still slightly limp but as today is not very hot and it has been watere d again I know when I get home they will all be standing proud. Thank you so much for these wonderful additions to my garden. I love them so much. I look forward to ordering from you for next year!
Yours Truly and most satisfied Vivien

Subject: Beautiful Hostas!
I just wanted to thank you and let you know how pleased I was with my parcel I received yesterday! I have not ordered like this before and I was very worried! I could not believe my eyes when I opened the box and saw all the hosta leaves, all 11 are happy planted in my garden. I will certainly order from you again, Thanks again Brenda
Hi Dawn, Wow, my plants arrived bright & early Wed morning and they are all just beautiful. I have planted everything already and am more than pleased with what you sent. I'd like to say thanks to you for your personal attention to me, Dawn, you made my 1st mail-order a most pleasant experience. I would not hesitate to order from you again and will recommend you to my friends. Sincerely, Elaine
Hi I am sorry I have just discovered you this year - I have been disappointed in the past by other companies like yours. I wouldn't of expected such great plants seeing you are in such a colder zone and your prices! I will be talking about your business with my gardening friends. You also do talks? would you come to BC>>?? Sally
Hi Dawn The Gray Cole Hosta arrived today. It is all potted up and ready grow. Thank you very much for sending such a nice hosta. It looks great. Thanks again, Marion

Hi gardensplus I received my "Niagara Falls" hosta this morning. It arrived in excellent condition. It is already planted and looks great. Thanks, Robert
Re: My Order
Hi Dawn, WOW, Received my order yesterday. I have been ordering for a number of years by mail order and then heard about you by a neighbor. The past company I dealt with was ok - BUT you are the only company I will be using from now on! No small babies from you! So nice to have maturer stock shipped and great roots. The minis were small but that is to be expected! Good luck with this coming season hope to be able to make it up you way for a weekend and thank you again in person! Thankx for the bonus plants. If not will order again for fall! Take care Mike

Hi Dawn, Many thanks again for the Hostas. They arrived in good condition and I have planted them. Some of the colours look a bit different but I imagine they'll look more like the pictures once they mature. Thanks also for remembering to send the map. I will definitely try to make a trip later on to see Gardens Plus and meet you. Thanks for everything. Ranvir

Aug 12, Re: Quick Delivery! Hello Dawn. Just wanted to thank you quickly for the smooth transaction (sounds like I'm on Ebay). I was really impressed with the way you packed the daylilies and how quickly they arrived (Tuesday morning). They've been planted and I look forward to the results next year. I'll definitely shop from you again. Thanks again, Steve
Tue, 21 Jun My order did arrive safely. My computer on the other hand has been out of commission for the last couple of weeks. Well this is year number four (4) that I have been receiving Hostas from Gardens Plus. Can't say enough about the quality and the service. So again Dawn, thanks a bunch. Jocelyn
June 13th, Hi Dawn: I received my Hostas today. They are all in good shape and very beautiful. I really liked the way you packed everything and the quality of the plants. I also appreciate the fact that the most expensive plants were not the smallest roots. I have dealt with gardens that give only the tiniest of roots for the higher priced material. I will definitely order from you again and recommend you to other gardeners. Thanks so much. Sylvia BC
June 7th, Hi Dawn, I just wanted to let you know the daylily plants plants all look good. I'm really impressed by your nursery operation and how you were able to utilize your available space so well. Your hosta collection looks just incredible. I'm looking forward to picking some up a bit later on. I'll order them in advance before I come down there. Kathy
June 7th, Thank you for my great additions to my collections. I am too addicted to Hosta and Daylilies and will hope to have one of each of yours - now that I know your qualilty and special service I will be buying often. I am just so glad I found you - just too bad it wasn't earlier when I ordered prior from others and found myself disappointed! Looking forward to my next order and coming for Hosta Fest!! I am also attaching you my wish list.
Wow, For your prices was not expecting the quality and size! I will
be placing another order very soon.
Thank you for your great service and thinking I will make an efford to come and see your place in July since I am only 3 1/2 hours away! Seems like a nice thing to do on a Sunday in July. Sue
July 29, Just received the order of hosta's and am very impressed by the quality of the plants. I'll be adding you to my list of regular mail order nurseries and passing on your name to others! Sarah
July 19, I came to check you out in person this past weekend. I have been mail ordering from you since 1999 and have always been curious. All I can say is 'WOW" - what beautiful gardens and great perennials. I will continue to mail order but your garden will be on my list every July to visit!!! Good work and you should be very proud of your business!!! Karen

May 27, HI Dawn, I received the hostas today and they are great. They are in really good condition and they are a nice size too. Many thanks. Marion
May 27, Hi Dawn! Thanks, I received my daylilies this afternoon. I'm very happy and satisfied, very good service. I soak the roots for a couple hours and they are in my bedding now. I will think of you when they blooming, hoping this summer.... Have a good season.... GINETTE
May 27, Hi WOW! I can not believe the sizes of your plants for the prices. Will definitely be ordering from you again soon. Also planning a trip your way in mid July as would love to see that may varieties blooming on one property! Thanks a million - so glad I found you! Jessica
May 26, Dawn, Received my order this a.m. Please tell me the little Iris was not a mistake!!!! Thanks for the surprise. Will be planting later today and hopefully the sun will come out for that. It has rained here for 6 straight days. The grass looks great!! Thanks again. Will try and take a picture of all the Hostas that have come from your nursery and send it later in the summer. Jocelyn
Hi Dawn, The daylily shipment arrived today in great shape. Thanks for
plants and good luck with your growing season. Take care, Regards, Larry
Jul 19-wow, I have been ordering from you for three years and had to come to see you in person. What a place you have and hard to believe most gardens are only 4-5 years old. Your passion is really something else and it showes in your perennials. So glad I made the trip today. My new daylilies are planted and look great. Don't know how you do it for your prices you charge! Keep up the good work! Dave C Look forward to your 2004 listing
Jun 23-I received my order of Day Lilies and Hostas in early June as per your note. They arrived in very good condition and have all taken very well. I just wanted to pass along my thanks for the quality and condition of the plants! Tom
Jun 11-I can not believe the quality of your plants for the price. I was skeptical about ordering through the mail but you obviously know what you are doing. The plants look great and are settling to there new home. I just love daylilies and look forward to there bloom. Keep up the good work! I plan on adding to my gardens again in the fall - you will be hearing from me again soon. Sara
Jun 10-Received my order today as promised. They are all beautiful. Something about Hostas I can't resist. All four are planted. Now hopefully it warms up soon so we don't have to grow them indoors!!! Again thanks for the great service and first class plants. Jocelyn
Jun6- I just want to let you know how satisfied we are with your hostas this year. Montana Aureomarginata has roots to die for and the little Sea Fire you were worried about was actually two separate plants. They seemed to be being strangled by what looked like fern roots, when I cleaned them all off their root system looked great. The rest of the hostas also have great roots. Have to mention Stained Glass she is just glowing in my garden. I am more than pleased with my order this year and will order again as soon as I get more room. Again thank you for the great plants. ...Ron and Sandy
Jun 3-In as much as I was very disappointed for not receiving H. Inniswood, I must admit that I am very delighted with the rest of the order...which was received today Tuesday June 3. The great majority of the hostas are nice and big, and healthy. I have planted them right away. Thanks for your wrapping method in a newspaper to protect each species which had big leaves already. If you ever come across Inniswood please let me know. Thanks for your cheque as reimbursement of the missing Inniswood. I am very satisfied and will buy again from Gardens Plus. Ghislain
May 29- Order has been received and daylilies are in the ground. Thanks for such a good service. Lise
May 29-I have received my order of daylilies on Wednesday, they are all looking happy and wonderful planted in the ground already. Can't wait to see them blooming. Have a nice summer.
May 28- Dear Sir/Madam: My order of stiletto hostas arrived this morning in great shape. Thank you very much. Jo-Anne
May28- I was very happy with the quality of the plants you sent me. I had a bad experience with another mail-order service a number of years ago - the plants were tiny and shriveled. It put me off ordering anything through the mail until I saw your web site through a gardening association link. I am very happy I took another chance! No doubt you will hearing from me again. Tania
Jan 2- Thank you for your prompt response. I am also looking for .... if you find one you can add it to the order. I was really pleased with your service and the plants last year and we are looking forward to meeting you this spring. Ron and Sandy
Aug 24-I received the hostas I ordered on Sunday noon on Wednesday! The plants arrived in good condition, and I was pleased with the quality. Yesterday I called on a business contact and we eventually discussed gardening. After she mentioned she has difficulty locally obtaining daylily cultivars she is interested in, I suggested she visit your web site. Leonard
Aug-Please see attached file for my order. I have today sent you a cheque in the amount of .... I placed my first order with you this spring and I was impressed by the quality of the plants and the tags! Anne- Marie

June 26th- I got my order yesterday-wow that was fast and thank you so much! They are beautiful, shipped real nice and in awesome shape. They are much much bigger than I expected. I will definitely be ordering from you again! Thank you Connie
18th- Thank you very much, flowers arrived today in PERFECT condition.
See you next year. Appreciation and good garden season, Michel.
June 15th-I'm impressed! I've purchased by mail order from all over, but your daylilies take the cake. I'm used to getting them in bags with labels stuck to the outside... You supplied the plants with names(hand written) attached by wire to each plant so they can't be lost. The plants were larger than I am used to. Now all we need is some sun!!!!!!! Thanks again Arthur
June 8-I received my order yesterday.I was very pleased with the quality of the plants and the condition they arrived in; Thanks again. Sonja
May 24th-Thanks, The parcel arrived yesterday, Thursday, in great shape. In fact, I want you to know that I am SO impressed with the quality of your plants - this is the first order I've ever received that has been in such good condition, and labelled so carefully. Usually, I have to guess at what everything is because I've misplaced the crummy little bag that they've come out of, and the poor condition of the plants has made me reconsider ordering plants from anywhere. What a treat to get your plants! I can't wait to get home from work tonight to plant them - sadly, it was late when I got home last night and 0 degrees C, so I wasn't rushing out right then! We have had probably the worst spring ever - one day over the weekend it was snowing and there were mosquitoes! Welcome to Northern Ontario! It does help to know that your weather is no better! Thanks again, and please keep me posted on your mailing list, or whatever you do - I would certainly order from you again, anytime!! Barb K
May 23-I received my order yesterday and planted them immediately. The hostas and cranesbills look terrific and I cannot wait for the lady's slipper to bloom. Then I will be very happy. I have been pleased with your plants in the past and I will continue to use you in the future. Thanks once again. A Very satisfied customer Tom D
