    I am searching for a good wholesale nursery (Bryan/ College Station) to build a relationship with as I grow. I am in the process of calculating an estimate to replace 9 waxleaf privets, a few dwarf yaupon holly and boxwoods. I can estimate using the prices from Home Depot, but I would rather work with local nursery if I could just find one.
    Also looking for a good mulch supplier too. I have been using American Stone& Turf with no complaints, but would like to find out what else is around.

    BTW before anyone replies with "google it" I have tried and I have wasted my gas driving to these "listed nurseries" only find that they have been replaced with apartment complexes and such.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Nice to finley see someone here close to me....

    It may be Quite a haul for you, BUT If you have filed your DBA, and have your sales and use tax permit, Houston garned center will wholdsale to you.

    Also there a tree farm in Summerville, that will wholesale.

    and your right. DO NOT QUOTE prices from home deopt. or Lowes. you will eat a TON of CROW.....

    I would really like to visit you sometimes and see your operation. and your certanily invited to visit with me.....

    I know everyone here in my area that's in the Landscaping Business. and it looks like your 1st starting out.

    WE can really help each other. I wish I knew you a few months ago. As you know Chunc norris lives in Anderson. and he was seeking someone new to handle his lawn.

    It was Just too far for us....

    Hope to hear from you soon...

    PM me ans we can email each other.

    Howdy Andy,

    For a wholesale nursery I use R & R Plant Nursery. Also if your just looking for trees there is one in navasoto right behind martha's bloomers and also one south of wellbourn.

    For Mulch I use american stone and turf, but there is also one on hw30, can't remember the name of it.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks for the replies. R&R is one that I went searching for and could not find. On google it shows their over on Cross Park Drive over by Copperfield, but there is nothing buy new apartments. Did they move? Could you send me their whereabouts.

    Thanks for the reply. I defiantly will take you up on that visit sometime. I was just thinking that I really need to start meeting local landscapers. I am going to be looking for a walk behind around the end of August. It seems like all the deals are down around Houston on CL so maybe we could coordinate something at the same time.
