We have been planning on going there but are really clueless how it works. I understand that you have to "know" your stuff. Well we were just looking to hopefully get some Crape Myrtles for our yard. How much would we or should we plan to spend on about 10 of them?

Thanks!

Linda

We paid about 25.00 each a few years ago at Old Stage in Angier, they were medium sized. They do have workers there that can answer questions. I bought all my plants in Angier. It does save you tons of money if you are buying in bulk.

Thanks for the help. My parents went and made it sound like you were on your own and you had to hope you got what you wanted. That scared me.

We'll check it out for sure! $25 a tree is great!

Is it Broadwell's Nursery that you're talking about?

Yes,,, I went and found the same thing.

There isn't anything that is really marked to tell you ... what the plant/tree is?? or any prices.

Most of the workers I found were Mexican and the ones I encountered didn't
really speak english. So... it would be better if you know what you want
and have already done some comparison shopping.

It seems they have different prices for different people??

Good luck and let us know how you find it.

My mom said something similar. Like they made prices up or something. I don't know what to expect. We'll see! Thanks for any replies.
