Where do YOU buy fragrant plants?

I'm on a search for some fragrant plants but I don't know where to buy them.
Where have you found the biggest selection or best prices or most reasonable shipping costs?
I shop Forest Farm often, but they don't have any Michellias, and it makes me wonder what else they don't have ...

There are a couple of excellent nurseries in South Carolina, send me an email and I'll give you their websites.

Gardino's nusery is the best I have found so far. I have ordered several plants from them and all have arrived in great cond. I think they were hit pretty hard by Wilma but Im sure they will be taking more orders when normal mail service returns. You can google their name or send me an email Ill give you the website.

Thanks Heavinsent, I'll google their name.

I like Flower Scent Gardens. The owner, Glenn, searches for the most fragrant of each kind of flower. Last I knew, he was planning to put out a smaller list this year--something about health problems in his family, plus it sounds like he had to deal with some very unkind people this year. But hopefully things have smoothed out. Even a smaller list will be worth your time.

Everything he has sent me has been very healthy, and the packing is extremely well done. Good prices too. I've ordered from him for years.

The plant list is not your same 'ol same 'ol. Some of the things he carries are not available anywhere else.

RE: Where do YOU buy fragrant plants?

I just checked out Flower scent gardens, and looks like they have some great fragrant plants. I decided I'm not going crazy buying more roses this year, but am adding hummingbird attracting plants and fragrant flowers to my gardens. I will definitely be ordering from Flower scent gardens. Thanks for posting the link Jenn.


RE: Where do YOU buy fragrant plants?

I second the recommend on Flowerscent gardens. I have ordered for a couple of yrs and Glenn's plants and seeds are the best!

Bluestone Perennials and ForestFarm are 2 others that I order from a lot.
