Stuart's in Weatherford has the best selection, most affordable native shrubs and trees that I've found.

I like Barton Springs Nursery and The Natural Gardener in Austin. King Feed is the best in Wimberley.

A second for Stuart's. The prices and selection are great and they really have very knowledgeable folks working there.

Thank you for telling abot Stuart's. That is new to me. Weston Gardens in Fort Worth is nice, too.

Blue Moon Gardens
13062 FM 279
Chandler TX

Located a few miles west of Pounds Field (the airport) in Tyler, Texas. I could stay there all day.

I'm putting in a second vote for Weston's, and if you're into azaleas, rhodedendrons and maples, Metro Maples.

I'll nominate Heep's Nursery in Harlingen, as it's the best source of native plants that I know of. All 1 gallon plants cost $5, even for extremely rare species that no other nursery carries.

I second Blue Moon Gardens - Hand Nursery is nearby, always has beautiful blooming things, not a huge nursery, but I always find something I must have. Chamblees Rose Nursery in Tyler is the best for own root, reasonably priced roses. The Antique Rose Emporium in Brenham is another favorite. Cook's in Nacogdoches is excellent.

alameda....where is Hand Nursery? I saw a Hand Rose Farms online but it stated it was wholesale only.....

Green's Produce on Arkansas in Arlington had a great selection of hard to find plants last year and they are getting them in again this year. If you can't find what you want a Redenta's they are just east of them on the same street. Knowledgeable staff too. I'm a long time fan of Hare's on Division in ARlington too.

thumb's up to others mentioned. Sure wish I could get back to ARE this spring. Came back with a car full of plants last May.

My favorite nursery for native plants is Rohde's in Garland. North Haven is nice, too. A fun day trip is Blue Moon Nursery. I could wander around all day.

Barton Springs Nursery, Natural Gardener and the Great outdoors in Austin Texas are tied in my mind.

What nursery has the best selection of tropical fruit trees? Mangoes, Jaboticaba, starfruit?


 o
RE: nominations for best plant nurseries in state?

The Flower Ranch in Keller is pretty nice. A very wide selection and helpful staff. Lots of times, you have to buy a whole flat but they also have some individual plants.

I can't remember the name of it, so hopefully someone will know - it was a nursery just outside Fredericksburg. Huge, with lots of natives, seeds - I could have stayed all day.

@marti8a - Wildseed Farms?

I've never been there but hopefully will someday. My fav is Blue Moon Gardens.

In San Antonio I like the two Rainbow Gardens and of course Antique Rose Emporium.

Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg is wonderful! Bob, Tammy and I were there a couple of weeks ago. There was only one field of blooming wildflowers to be seen this time. I guess the others had already been harvested, but there were acres of beautiful plants and literally tons of gorgeous pots. The pictures below don't even begin to show them all.

They don't have the butterfly house any more, but instead a new butterfly garden, also a nice new waterfall garden. It's definitely a great place to visit and from which to buy plants and seeds; and also crafts from their gift shop.

The Friday we were there they had a tent set up and were selling plates of fresh barbequed brisket and sausage they were doing on the spot. I don't know how often that happens.

Plus there is all the other neat things in Fredericksburg to see and do. The Nimitz Museum is fascinating and well worth the time spent there, and all the quaint little shops along the main street are fun to browse.

Yes! Wildseed Farms. How could I have forgotten that. I even have it bookmarked. Loved that place.

McIntire's Garden Center, Georgetown
It's always nice to go to a nursery where the staff is friendly but most important they know what they sell.
