We are going to be in the Cleveland, Columbus area sometime during the second week in April. I realize it might be a tad early for this, but, can anyone recomend a nursery I should not miss during my visit? Thanks a lot for the help
When your in columbus Oakland park nursery is very nice, a great selection and they almost all look great.
yes, Oakland Park is nice.
Also, Ehmann's and Sons, near Grove City has about the greatest selection of annuals I've seen.
Anderson's near Sawmill Road is great for shrubs.
Strader's is good for buying 'things' to put in the garden, or for accessories like pots and birdhouses.
Baker's Acres is north Cols. and there is another one close by there that I keep forgetting the name of... oh darn. Cedar Brook, maybe? It's down the road and around the corner from Baker's Acres.
Then, south on 23 - around Circleville or maybe just south of there, is a small nursery called Royal Nursery (I think), on the East side of 23, resembles an old hotel set-up, has good prices, and some interesting stuff, as well as smaller shrubs at affordable prices, should you need lots of them.
Oh, there's more for sure - but I can't even remember the name of most of them, I just know where they are.
Oh, if you go to Sutherland's, you can sometimes get great bargains on perennials and annuals. I purchased a mass of primrose for 25 cents each one year. Their annuals are a little smaller than typical and just about 1/2 the price of them too.
