Best Places to Buy Bloomers
Great online nurseries you might not yet know about
June is National Perennial Gardening Month, and when we asked where you buy your favorites, many of you named the biggies, like White Flower Farm, Jackson & Perkins, and Wayside Gardens. But we were psyched about all the lesser-known nurseries on your list, including:
Perennial Pleasures, Vermont
This nursery specializes in heirloom plants and herbs. Its fields and greenhouses are tucked behind the owner's 1840s house.
Carroll Gardens, Maryland
They earned kudos for offering a wide variety of perennials, bulbs, and roses. Get advice from the site's Garden Club Connection community.
Big Dipper Farm, Washington
Shop by variety or yard condition at this Pacific Northwest nursery's website, which offers tips on caring for flowers and plants once they arrive.
High Country Gardens, New Mexico
Just like the name says, this nursery stocks varieties that are adapted to high altitudes, as well as dry climates and drought conditions.
Spring Hill Nursery, Ohio
Visit their "step-by-step garden" section to browse more than a dozen mixed gardens designed by their pros, along with one-click ordering for all the plants and flowers you need.
