Buying Wholesale Plants?

Question:

Answer:

Jim,

Are you looking to get into the business, or just looking for a price break on buying a large quantity of plants? Here is a helpful link to nurseries in the state of Minnesota:

To purchase plants at wholesale rates, most nurseries require a tax ID number and/or a nursery license. Unless you're in the business, gardeners are not allowed to purchase plants wholesale, or there would be no one left to buy retail. Still, if you are looking for hundreds of bulbs or a large number of one type of item it might be worth checking an individual nursery's policy regarding price breaks for buying in bulk. It has been my experience that the smaller, local nurseries are more willing to negotiate price breaks.

You might try your phone book under Wholesale Nursery. I found one here in Indianapolis that way. They had unique species that the big box stores didn't carry for a good price.

You might check this place---I think the plants are free and you only pay shipping.

I am a master gardener with the state of Florida, and we regularly have plant sales. So try your local extension office and see if they have a master gardener program and plant sale.
