I found a couple nice hostas at BreezyPointNursery in Clarksville Michigan. The grower said he is just getting started.

Most chain or local places that only sell plants for spring summer do not carry the hard to find plants... Well this place has it all and the price is very resonable.. I  LOVE this place. It's an old Braums store in Ada Oklahoma. The owner added in the shade cloth this year and I am so glad he did!! This is on asphalt and in the heat, it gets really hot looking at plants. Their is also every kind of pot imaginable to be had too, but pic didnt turn out..

My favorite nursery is Summerwinds. They always have the greatest plants and the ones that I can't find at a normal nursery. Love going there!

 Well, of course The Pottin' Shed is my favorite nursery. It is located in Lake City, Colorado. The elevation is about 8,700 feet.

I grow most of my own plants. And have the coolest "living roof" I have ever seen, Check it out!

Not sure if I can find a photo.. my favorite nursery/ garden center is Tagawa's Garden Center in Centennial, Colorodo (South of Denver). It was my favorite before I started working there five seasons ago. It is one of the largest garden centers in Colorado.. it has 12 acres of greenhouse. Some of the greenhouses are devoted to production and some to sales. One summer I started looking for a second job and decided to try places that I would enjoy working; garden centers, book stores, fabric stores.. and was hired on at the garden center.

I feel that Tagawa's is a great garden center cause the people that work there LOVE plants, love their jobs, and love helping andsharing with others their love of gardening. If I don't know an answer, I find someone who does.. and they likewise. We have several Master Gardeners.. and they really know their stuff. But even, better, is we have the coolest customers. You can tell they love the garden as much as the workers. Very seldom do we get a disgruntled customer. Some people come in and are frustrated with their plants or their ponds.. and we are there to help and hopefully educate them on what to do to rectify their problem. Throughout the year we offer different events, Melon festival, pumpkin festival, koi show, iris show, chili roasting, garlic days, christmas days, wine and roses night, and the biggest event is Mothers Day. On that particular weekend we have live music, free hot dogs, and more. We also offer closes on specific areas of gardening.

I will find pictues to post later.. I have the website posted on my profile. If ever in Denver area... stop in... say hi... enjoy the atmosphere of the place, you'll fall in love too.

hello, My name is Debra and I have worked with a nursery and also a private home with their won Nursery in a large shed type metal frame with the sides that roll up for the sun with the black mess so that is really isnt "direct" sunlite" and the plants range from StagHorns, Palms assorted, starter plants of all kinds. Lots of tender loving care and water. i live here in Fl. so it is slot easier than up-North to do so.

"Yeah but you get heaps colder, so I,m sure you feel your heat the same as I feel mine. The plants don,t like our heat however , what I grow would not survive if I did not water them during summer. In fact a lot of people have stopped growing plants…"

"Thank you Keryn, you obviously are fertilizing just right!  Mine are indoors, but it has been a relatively cool summer.  I will try just a little fertilizer.  At least the plants look healthy and still alive!"
