    There is W&E Radtke, Inc. in the Milwaukee area, but they only do perennials. Good luck.

    That's about all the info I have. I don't live in the Milwaukee area. I did attend a seminar in Franklin, Wis. where George Radtke, owner of W&E Radtke, INC., gave a talk. I believe they are in the northern suburbs of Milwaukee. Try the yellow pages. Good luck.

    Radtke's is located one block north of Freistadt Rd. in Germantown and just east of Hwy 175. their office is on the south side of the street. Sorry I don't have a number or the street. When you turn off of 175 on your left is an empty field.

    Another wholesaler is Wayside Nursery. I believe it is right on 76th street north of County Line Rd. but south of Mequon Rd.
    That's the best that I can do, we get a lot of our material from Minor's Garden Center. THey have a special contractor office and can deal with large quantities.

    I made a mistake in my last post: It is east of 145, not 175. Sorry about that. In all actuality I work for one of the larger landscape companies in the area and don't have my own business. I wish I had the opportunity to start my own bus but just can't do it right now.
