    Unfortunately, out of the 5 nurseries within a 15 mile radius of my town none of them offer wholesale prices or even discounts for landscape contractors.
    So I've decided to go online to find a wholesale nursery.
    Does anyone have a suggestion, pros/cons.
    I've thought about NatureHills.com. They're only about 2 1/2 hours from me in Omaha, does anybody have experience with this company or any other.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I think that you have to be a licensed nurseryman to buy from a wholesale nursery. Well, if it's a well respected wholesale nursery you can expect to have to have a license. It's pretty bogus that the local nurseries won't give you a discount on plants. Around here they usually give a 20% discount. Another thing that you can expect, They usually have a minimum order per plant that you get. The wholesaler here has a minimum of 10 of each plant/tree.

    You can go to Topeka, Hefner Nursery.
    I am very suprised there are no wholesale someplace close to the home of K-State.
    Always drive into KC if you have to.
    I only order stuff online if it is bareroot
    Hope it helps

    You don't have to be a licensed nurseryman, but you do have to have a live plant dealers license in Kansas.
