    "Re-wholesalers" are common in this business. One of the better known companies is Shemins. Lots of small operators do this and also some larger 'garden centers' will offer a re-wholesale service/discount to local landscapers which is very convenient but you give up profit for convenience. Dealing directly with growers/nurseries will give you more profit if you can cultivate that relationship and that amount of sold material.
