I often need to buy starter plants and have been delighted with the quality and health of your plants! I love having the tiny host as to fill in in my edible garden tree and shrub pots. The Blue Mouse Ears just make me smile. (Posted on May 31, 2018)

I have had these hosta and they are so beautiful that I ordered more. Starters are small, but very healthy with good root development. Doing well. Variety is a real winner! (Posted on July 21, 2017)

Last spring, I decided to try planting a border, alternating blue mouse ears and mighty mouse. I've never used the starters before, and I have to admit that I was a little pessimistic. But, they are off-and-running this year! :) (Posted on July 11, 2017)
