    Does anyone around in the Northern VA area especially around Manassas, know of any wholesale nurseries in the area?

    Thank you for any input on this.

    Justin-

    There's a place in Gainesville called Shemin Nurseries. It's on Wellington Rd. (I think). Anyway its on the same road as the Nissan Pavilion. You just need some proof that you are from a lawn care company (a business card should be fine)

    It's a little hard to find as it is tucked behind some other businesses and you can't see it from the road, but they do have a little sign out there. If you turn onto Wellington from Rt. 29, cross the railroad tracks and its maybe a quarter or half mile down on the left.

    Hoolie, thanks for the info

    If it is the nursery that Im thinking of it is just behind the Hertz rental building.

    Is the wholesale discount like Meadows Farms and Beaty's at 10 or 20%. Or is it like 30% to 50% off retail price???

    Thanks agian for the reply.

    I remember Meadows Farms is 10% on a lot of items, maybe a little more for some specials. Not sure about Betty's. Mostly I do residential mowing so I don't go to the nurseries much. Shemin only deals with contractors, the general public is not allowed to shop there.

    Do you do mainly landscaping?
