McCorkle Nursery Sale
Just learned that McCorkles nurseries will be having their big, semi-annual sale June 16, 17, and 18 at their Dearing Georgia location.
For those unfamiliar with McCorkles, it's a LARGE wholesale nursery that has a huge sale twice a year with trees, shrubs, azaleas, rhododendrons, daylilies, hydrangeas, hostas, etc. available to the public. They hold the sale in one of their large fields and bring plants in on beds pulled by tractors. Went last year and filled up the back of my pickup truck for under $70; even going on Saturday (the last day), the nursery was bringing plants out at the end of sale (around 4 pm). Lots of landscape folks out there poking around! Folks often come back several days in a row to see what new things have been brought out.
The address (for an internet search on directions) is McCorkle Nurseries, 4904 Luckey's Bridge Road SE, Dearing Georgia 30808. Toll free phone number is 800-533-3050.
If you go, bring a wagon (for loading up your plants), water and a hat; the sale is held in a open field and you can sometimes tell whose been there the longest by their sunburn.
