There are many growers in Tennessee, especially around Minnieville (sp?) that should be willing to sell to you. You can also use a paper publication called The Plant Locator or go to on the web. These sources all seem fairly heavy in southern grower listings. If you look in the various trade magazines that are frequently referenced on the forum, you should find listings for shows where you can go and meet the growers and gather lots of catalogs as well as place orders. Good Luck!

There are numerous wholesale nurseries around McMinnville, and also down around Athens, AL. I have a relative who is in the landscaping biz and she gets lots of her shrubs and trees from growers at both of these areas. If you are interested email me and I can get you a list of the ones there.
