Nursery Recommendations for Northern Virginia (near Alexandria)
I'm taking on a landscaping project for my parent's house in Alexandria. I've got a general idea of layout based on plant size/placement, and my mother is very keen on getting a hydrangea, but besides that we would like to discuss our plans and plant options with someone in a store.
Does anyone have recommendations for nurseries in/around Alexandria that...
-Have a very helpful and communicative staff that would be willing to go over our plans and give plant suggestions?
-Are very reasonably priced?
A few names I have come up with:
-Hybla Valley Nursery (closest to us, not many ratings, but spoken of well?)
-Greenstreet Gardens (also close, but mixed reviews)
-Roozen Nursery and Garden Center (in Fort Washington, MD. Further, but someone way back recommended this to my dad for service/price, so he's really pushing it...)
-Gingko Gardens (in DC. It'd take a little longer to get there with traffic, but was well-reviewed)
-Merrifield Garden Center in Falls Church, VA: this name came up on similar NoVA nursery forum posts, but there are multiple Merrifields, so I was hoping someone had feedback on this specific center (about 20 mins away from us).
If anyone has feedback on these or alternative suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it!
