    How far do you want to drive? I know a few good wholesale nurseries but they are a little ways away.

    Dudley nursery is a little east of Atlanta proper, I dont remember what town in though. When I worked for Post Properties, we would go out there and pick out our stuff. The place is huge with a good selection.

    There are two that I deal with: Swafford's Nursery in Cleveland, TN. Their website is swaffordsnursery.com. Another is Burkhart Farms in Rock Springs, GA. They don't have a website that I know of. Both of these guys are good and only sell wholesale, no retail. Also don't bring customers with you, if you do that. They both don't allow that. Swafford's is my personal favorite. Aaron Swafford is the owner and I like him alot.

    Just planted a crepe mrytle (15 gallon size) on Oct 18th, 2009 I wanted to know if I could use a fertilizer [Bondie 4-10-3 Root & Grow Fertilizer] or should I just water and fertilize next spring 2010.

    I wanted the root system get developed as soon as possible before winter comes. The leaves turned yellow/orange and fell off since I've planted on Oct 18th and today it just seems dry?

    I'm in Atlanta, GA 30314
