    We are looking for a new wholesaler who will sell flats of annuals to landscapers. We usually go through 250+ flats a season. Also about 500+ mums in fall.

    Also interested in Palm trees 6-8'.. (they will be brought in during winter)

    The big guy up here closed due to a messy divorce. Not sure if someone bought out the operation yet. Seems like everyone here has 10000 mums, but the annuals arent as much. My suppliers get most of their supply down south if they dont grow it themselves. You can easily set up 250 flats in a medium sized green house for very little, minus the building.

    Try Vanwinderin farms in Lincoln Park, NJ. They are huge to say the least and they sell to contractors and most of the nurseries in the tri state area. They have very good prices especially for bulk. They also will supply seedlings to which we buy to grow our own. I'm not sure on the spelling but I am very close on it. They are located across from the Lincoln Park airport.

    Try Pleasant Run Nursery, that is in the South Jersey area and they are pretty large.
