    One of my customers has just finished putting in a pool and would like me to put in about 7-8 palm trees. Does anyone know of a good place to purchase palms without losing my shirt?:cool:

    Check with your local nursury's. I'd probably start with a John Deere Landscapes nursery, I know they've gotten them somewhere in their network before. I have no idea what they would cost though, I can't remember the last time I saw a live palm tree around here.:D They don't last too long when the snow starts flying!

    I would do as D Flex said and check with John Deere Landscapes they seem to have access to almost every type of plant. You might try RarePlants in PTC but they may ask for your shirt and pants.

    Let me ask you a question
    1 What type of palm
    2 Height
    I'll call my supplier and ask how much he whosales them for. This should give you a estimated price.
