  13. I would like – no, LOVE a MAP of the best nurseries and growers of flowers/plants on LI. Every spring I need to replant/replace/restructure elements in our little garden and I’d really LOVE it if folks could put their heads together to not only come up with a list, but also a MAP so my annual Quest could become a regular Pilgrimage. THANKS, Fellow Garden Enthusiasts!

    • What say you readers? what is your favorite plant nursery? I haven’t bought a lot of shrubbery myself, so welcome any suggestions.
      When I first started out many years ago, I bought a lot from White Flower Farm in Connecticut, both through the catalog and on their site and had great success although you probably will pay more than if you shopped locally. Their daffodil-daylily package called “The Works” was stunning. I noticed that Stables in Deer Park has also carried some of their items. I also go to plant sales – there is one today & tomorrow at Old Westbury Gardens!
