Western NC garden centers

eleanorb190April 14, 2014

We will be moving to Rutherfordton area, between Asheville and Charlotte, sometime in next six months. Does anyone have any recommendations for garden centers an hour or less away? I am interested in perennials, shrubs, trees and herbs and am already aware of Jesse Israel and BB Barns in Asheville and Lowes in Forest City.
TIA!

Goodness, Ronnie..(and welcome to you!) use your google. I did and found several in that vicinity. No experience with any of them so can't recommend for or against.

Thanks for your reply, Dottie. The reason I posted this is because I when I did a Google search I found wholesalers, landscapers and businesses that give very little information. Future neighbors get their plants from the local Lowes and Walmart Garden Centers. I thought maybe if I posted here someone might know of garden centers that a Google search does not reveal and/or one they can recommend from personal experience.

Hi,
I just saw your posting. Not sure how far Painter's Nursery is from you, but I make the drive from Winston-Salem atleast once a year. I have always been pleased with the selection and the price. Info is as follows:
Painters Nursery

Old Fort, NC 28762

Your reply is much appreciated, jdbheartease!!!!!
I checked it out online and it will be about a 45-50 min drive from my future home. Definitely my kind of garden center.
Thanks!!!!!
