Customer Reviews

"Thank you so much for the quick delivery of three Hostas. They are beautiful, larger than I imagined and I am so pleased! They are now planted and I am sure they will be bright spots in my gardens for many years to come. Thank you!!"     Pat D. - Kewanee, Illinois

"Hi Rich and Crew: Just a note to say that again this year we have enjoyed our visit to your great nursery, and our purchases are doing well. My family from New Zealand also enjoyed the visit over the Memorial Day weekend. Hopefully I'll make it back down there in the Fall."     John P. - Downers Grove, Illinois

"Thank you so much for making our day a huge success! The group enjoyed the class and came away with some great ideas for their gardens. Your grounds are beautiful and everyone enjoyed being able to walk thru the gardens looking at the plants and the garden art. Your staff was very helpful, and always courteous and professional. I heard many comments on how attentive the staff was. I know it was not an easy task to get 53 of us checked out and keep all those plants organized and get them labeled with the correct name. But you did! It was awesome!!"     
             Linda K. - Blue Grass, Iowa

"Greetings - our first visit to Hornbakers was a wonderful experience! Everyone was so very helpful - Angela, Rich and Bob answered all of our questions - and there were plenty. Gorgeous gardens, beautiful plants and so much inspiration. We can hardly wait to plant our purchases. Cheers!"     Denise & Ron - Big Rock, Illinois

"I'd like to thank you again for all the assistance before and during our visit. It was a great experience. Customer service was exceptional. The selection and quality of plants was outstanding. The plants I bought were very healthy and have done well since I got them home. The root systems were in excellent condition, much better than I've seen at a lot of garden centers by July and August. I had a clump of daylilies dug up from the field, and we've enjoyed some beautiful blooms since getting it planted here. I wish that more businesses offered the same kind of exceptional experience. P.S. The lunch recommendation was great, too. Kramer's Kitchen is a winner."     Anne - Chicago, Illinois

Your daylily pictures and detailed information on each one helped me find what I needed."     Janice - Pennsylvania
