In case you hadn't found it, Dave now has added a nursery and gardens listing to DG. Let's start adding any nurseries around us on this link. That way, when you go on a nursery tour, you can map out your plant shopping trip. This will be great for scheduling vacation time also. This is the link for the above:

Edited to unlink the above (didn't work!) link and try this one...

podster, thanks for starting this thread. One of the important differences that will distinguish this feature from other general "trip advisor" or "yellow pages" sites is the input from each of us as gardeners.

Please add your feedback for the businesses you've patronized and the public gardens and parks you have visited. It helps other gardeners and the business or organization.

For smaller businesses and organizations, this type of "word of mouth" is their only form of advertising. And for businesses of any size, unsolicited testimonials are priceless - they can't buy that type of good will.

Here are the Texas listings so far:

You can narrow this down to a particular category (garden center/nursery, or public gardens, etc.) You can also plug in your ZIP and specify a radius (especially helpful if you live near the state line and want to see everything in your immediate area.)

If your favorite nursery or park/garden isn't listed yet, let us know and we'll add it, or start the entry and add what you know (we'll fill in the blanks.)

Josephine, I added all but the 2 wholesale nurseries and the landscape company - at this point, we're steering this feature towards businesses and organizations (public gardens, etc.) that can be accessed by the general public. Since you provided this list, I'm hoping you've done business with each of these retail sources, and can give feedback for the benefit of fellow gardeners ;o)

I have only done business with Redentas Garden, Weston Gardens, and Green Mama, the list was recomended by the Native Plant Society of North Central Texas.
I didn't know that you wanted only nurseries that we have had personal experience with.
If that is not o.k. you can remove the others, no problem.

Kadens Florist (its also a nursery)
1938 Rice AVe
Gainesville, Tx 76240

940-665-4354 website. This is the oldest single family owned nursery in Texas, 122 years. Mr. Kaden does all his own veggie starts and only sells what grows well in our area. If he doesn't have it it may not grow well here.

He is an Aggie grad and about one of the nicest people you would ever meet. I went in and one question turned into about an hour and a half conversation. He never seems rushed and will answer any and all questions. He also makes his own potting soil from his own organic compost that is out of this world...ask Melvatoo I gave her some.

Regarding bamboo, I'm not sure quite where the boundaries of the hill country are. My dad grew it for many years in Waco. Actually it's still growing. He started it with a piece he got while driving in the city's Cameron Park area maybe 30 years ago. Over the years it has become a good-sized stand in the corner of his yard. LiseP

A WONDERFUL Tx nursery is Pipe's Flower Ranch.

These guys grow and sell the most amazing, top-quality plants at very reasonable prices. The co-owners have been in the business for 20+ years and their employees are years' long vested people with a plethora of growing knowledge. Local municipalities frequent them for common area plantings and garden clubs have long kept them atop shopping lists. I highly recommend this nursery.
