    Check with your local or national associations. Out here we have the ANA Arizona Nurserymen Association. There must be something like that in your area too.

    ANF, this is NJ, the Garden State. Where are you located and what do you need. I purchase all my plant materials from growers all across the state. 4 of the 5 Treedoc gave you are growers, Shemin on the other hand is a rewholesaler and you may pay dearly for anything you buy there. The advantage to Shemin or Northern Nurseries as wholesalers is they can find you material they or others may not have in stock. Most growers sell what they have and don't have much time to track down odd requests. Princeton Nursery has an advantage as not only being a grower that sells in bulk, but also managing a wholesale yard that you can buy individual plants. I deal with a few dozen growers regularly, so I should be able to steer you in the right direction.
