What company do you order plants from? I usually order from Annies Annuals but S&S plus taxes make them so expensive. Plus -I am so disgusted with Brown and his taxes that I am going to avoid buying anything in my beloved Ca home state to avoid paying him and the crooked legistlature one penny.

One of Northern California's Largest Landscaper Suppliers.
Their wholesale and you must be State Licensed.

Since you live in the city of Orange, you should go to M and M Nursery at 380 N. Tustin Ave.
They carry a lot of the same things as Annie's Annuals which are grown by a local grower and you won't have to pay the ridiculous prices and S and H charges.
We're "in between seasons" right now, but in the fall they will have a VERY good selection.

Also, the old Heards Nursery in Westminster has been re-opened again and it's really nice.
I strongly recommend you ck. out both of these places. Once fall actually hits there will be a lot of good things to choose from at both nurseries.

But Snowtop wants to avoid paying California state taxes.

There are some very good nurseries in Oregon and Washington that won't charge an arm and a leg for shipping. Edelweiss Perennials is the very best online nursery, in my opinion:

Another one I like a lot is Sequim:

I have bought from Annies, but by the time she has it available, it's too late to plant here usually. Plant Depot in Capistrano is my favorite in Orange County. They have the widest selection of any others around here.
