I hope I don't offend you but I'm going to suggest you read a book by Tony Avent 'So You Want to Start a Nursery'. I read this after my husband wanted me to start a nursery on the side. I didn't want to anyway & really didn't after reading that book! Too much work for something I wasn't sure I'd enjoy & knowing my husband, he'd be the 'supervisor' & the kids & I would be the 'employees'.

Depends on the kinds of products you are seeking and where you are located. What are you looking for and where are you located?

For woody ornamental nursery stock try these:
Lakeside Nursery Company, Byron, GA. - One of the Best in the country
Don Shadow Nursery, Winchester, Tenn. - Very selective varieties
Strain and Son Nursery, Athens, AL - Broad variety
S&S Nursery, Athens, Al - Broad variety

Azaleas, Rhododendron, & Evergreen liners:
Flowerwood Nursery, Daphne, AL

Specialty varieties -Iseli Nursery- I forget where on the West coast...Calif., WA, Oregon?
Also, do not overlook Monrovia Nursery in Calif. Lots of liner material out there but they're pricey.

First thing, Contact your Local Ball Seed Company representative if you are seeking tropicals, annuals, & perennials as well as almost anything in the trade. Plus it can't hurt to have someone knowledgeable of other growers in your area.
Express Seed Company produces mostly annuals and prefers to deal with the larger growers buying 100K & Up annualy.

Contact your local extension service to begin networking and using their listings.

Perhaps this info is a help to you...tell more about your Business Plans and I'll try to guide you more precisely.
