    We are looking into establishing a retail sales location soon. I was just looking for any pointers and tips before we get started. I have an unbeatable mulch, soil, and stone supplier now, but I'm having trouble finding a good plant supplier. All I am looking to do is retail the plants not do any growing. Prices on plant material so far have been $7.25-$7.90 for a 3 gallon plant...reasonable? Any help greatly appreciated, I'm located in Rienzi, MS 38865 if you know of any supplier nearby.

    Take a trip to the Gulf and visit wholesale nursuries.

    If you have a box truck and about 10000 cash you can get some great deals.

    No because there is so many. I do know if you rent a uhaul and have 10k in cash you will make some great deals. It would be worth while to take a day trip and find some that will deal with you.
