Wholesale Nursery Options

Would love input from you all regarding where you purchase your plants when doing new installations, or re-designs. I've stayed away from online purchases because of quality concerns. Working with local nursery's...they will, of course discount for resellers, but I still think I should be able to buy things like fruit tree's and ornamentals cheaper than I have found here locally. If there's anyone out there in the Seattle area that has any specific input...even better! Thanx in advance for sharing your experiences!

If you are buying small quantity (1-5) of items then your best bet is probably a re-wholesaler or negotiating a discount with local nurseries. When you are ready to buy truckloads head down to portland. There are several ornamental growers there. Check out local trade shows.

I have a nursery and I offer I my competitors a discount. Usually works out well for the both of us.
