Nurseries in Jax: looking for succulents

ChemGardner(10a SWFL)December 22, 2011

I am heading to Jacksonville soon after Christmas to visit my family, and i am looking for some suggestions of nurseries in town that you guys recommend.

I am mainly looking for succulent-type plants. I am from SWFL and there is not a ton of selection down here, so I am always on the lookout when I visit another city.

Thanks for any advice!

An excellent nursery that carries lots of interesting, uncommon plants is Plant Ranch located at 14108 Beach Blvd. When I was there last week (buying camellias) they had lots of succulents. If there is something specific you want, you could call them beforehand (904) 223-4546. They are my favorite nursery in Jacksonville. See link below for their website. http://www.plantranchnursery.com/products.htm

Rockaway Garden Center located at 510 Shetter Avenue in Jacksonville Beach, (904) 853-6572 âÂÂis only a few miles from Plant Ranch. Here is their website: http://www.rockawaygardencenterfl.com/

There are also quite a few Ace Hardware stores here that carry great plants. They all have good stuff and are all on my go-to list, but the best one, in my opinion, is Hagan Ace Hardware located at 12501 San Jose Blvd, (904) 268-9597. The Hall's Ace Hardware located at 11524 San Jose Boulevard, (904) 262-1965 is only a few miles away and also very good.

There is also Pat's Nursery, located on US 17 Between Orange Park and Greencove Springs. It is a large nursery but since it is pretty far from me, I don't get there very often.

Have fun!

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm going to try and swing by Rockawau over the next couple days. I'll update with pics if it results in any new acquisitions :)

I use Proctor Ace on University. He usually has a good selection and friendly advice. Paula
