Redbud Lane Nursery in Canton, GA! It has everything; if not, they’ll get it for you! Great service! PERFECT location for the Cherokee County area!

I second AO, Garden*Hood is very cool place to get plants. Not too far from Grant Park, it’s got a unique and wide variety of plants, and the events are fun to attend!

Lowe’s has awesome prices and a great variety. If a store near you has a good nursery guy or gal, they can get you most anything you need. Also, Lost Mtn. Nursery in Cobb. Knowledgeable staff and wonderful variety.

Home Depot is by far the best one stop shop for all needs locally. As far as independents go, Northside Garden Center in Sugar Hill is great or, if you want the best in hydrangea’s, try Wilkerson Mill Gardens in Palmetto. Folks in the Woodstock area should try Twin Branch Nursery. Growers Outlet in Loganville if you have the time and patience (go on a weekday early). Shop around!

I buy from several sources — tomatoes and some herbs from Farmer D’s Organic at Briarcliff and Lavista; also Smith Ace Hardware on College Ave (peppers and herbs). Also whatever looks good at the time. Got some great okra one year at Ace Hardware on Scott Blvd. Also love the “mother store,” Pike’s huge nursery on Lawrenceville Hgwy. Then, of course, there’s always the kindness of friends who have donated cuttings and plants throughout the years.

I love going to Nature’s Fifth Season in Dacula. They have a small area outside with beautiful flowers and herbs for my garden and stuff I can’t find at Home Depot and Lowe’s.

Pikes Nursery has the best variety and quality. All plants from Moravia do very well. I really like Hastings too, more for the ambiance than the plants, it’s a great place, especially at Christmas time.

Earthscapes Enterprises! They have high quality plants, trees, mulch, and pine straw at unbeatable prices. Everything is beautiful quality! They are extremely helpful as well. They are very knowledgeable about their inventory, such as what plants do well in sunlight and what plants do not. They understand what you’re looking for and help you to the best of their abilities. Earthscapes Enterprises has, by far, given me the best experience finding and purchasing what I needed to spruce up my yard.

I do a nursery tour most Thursdays when they get their new plants arrive. I go to Habersham Gardens, Hastings (free popcorn!), and Ashe Simpson for “special” items. I also check out David Rivers Plants at the Forrest Park Farmer’s Market. He has quite a large selection and good prices.

This year I have been impressed with Home Depot this year at times for their prices and quality on some items, but usually their inventory is inconsistent.

P.S. Also bring your nursery pots to Grower’s Outlet who will recycle them! Don’t let them go to the landfill. Check out their website http://www.growersoutlet.com and you won’t believe the prices(examples: Sarah Bernhardt peony 1 for $3. or 4 for $10! Lantana $1 each)!

Pike – they’re usually more expensive, but we usually buy when they have sales – can’t beat their sales and their service is great.

Two places: I grow flowers in a cutting garden and I like Randy’s Perennials & Watergardens in Lawrenceville always has a very nice selection of perennials and annuals. For more flowers and for landscaping shrubs & such, I vote for Grower’s Outlet in Loganville on Hwy. 78 is also great!
