I am in search of a good and if possible family run nursery or gardening center in the Traid that sells a variety of items such as organic mulch, seaweed emulsion, seeds and high quality plants (such as lemon trees, Japanese maples, etc.) Lowe's and Home Depot have not impressed me since we moved here 6 months ago and I am looking for an alternative. I'm willing to drive up to 50-60 miles out of Winston-Salem, if I have to...

LA Reynolds in Winston-Salem is nice. They have a huge selection! They are a bit pricey, but the quality is good. They are located on Styers Ferry Road. I also like House of Plants on Harvey Street in Winston. Both places have a web site. I am not sure if I can post the link on here...

I, too, am always in search of good Gardening centers, as I love to garden and always love to visit and see what is new.

Best of luck to you! I'm so glad that Spring is almost here, and that means time in the garden!

I, too, would like to find a good gardening center with plants that are not the generic ones they sell at Lowes & HD. I've been to LA Reynolds, wasn't too impressed. If you like azaleas and basic roses, they're ok. One place I've found that has pretty much all types of plants (trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals) is Tom's Creek Nursery, down by Denton. The place is huge, it takes about a half day to see the whole place. They have a website, I think it's tomscreeknursery.com, but I'm not sure. I've never found organic mulch or seaweed emulsion anywhere in the Triad area.

The Briar Patch felt like it had more trinkets than plants!

What about the Triad Farmers Market off I-40 between Kernersville and PTI Airport?

Just thought of this one... Mitchell's Nursery and Greenhouse is an excellent family-owned nursery on the outskirts of King. mitchellsnurseryandgreenhouse.com - (336) 983-4107

Southwest of Winston on S. Stratford (just south of clemmonsville rd) there's Meyer's Nursery. I haven't looked for anything exotic, but they always have a nice selection of plants/shrubs. We picked up blueberry and raspberry plants there a few years ago and all are doing quite well. The PTI farmers market is ok, it's a good starting point, since some of the growers there might not have what you're looking for at the market, they may have it at their nursery. When driving in, the plants are usually concentrated over to the building on the right. We have 2 hardy kiwi's that are now producing after only being in the ground for 2 yrs.

Hi akwebb, good call on Myers' Greenhouse. I visit there often during the growing season. They have a great selection of flowers and vegetable plants at great prices. They also have a large selection of herbs, houseplants, cacti, and succulents.
