I have been trying to find if they have a list of trees and shrubs they currently have available but no luck, tried calling twice but no answer. Would anyone happen to know?

Because they keep prices low (wholesale prices) they don't cater to home owners. After you visit once, if you are a landscaper who might be buying wholesale quantities, you might get better service. But generally, you just need to visit, and even then you might not find someone to spend much time with you. That said, they are nice people, just busy.

I wasn't looking for anyone to spend time with me, was just hoping to figure out what I wanted before going and then leave me to rummage through everything. Guess I'll just take a trip out make a list and come back with a truck then. Thanks!

It’s definitely DIY - if you’re very familiar with plants and so on you can do well.

Came across this site recently, to check inventory at various wholesale nurseries statewide (and others who ship):
North Carolina Nursery & Landscape Association

Broadwell's doesn't have its inventory listed, but many other regional/local ones do. If you're looking for something specific, it might save a trip.

If you are looking for common plants or trees (nandina, privet, azalea, holly) you will find. They stock the plants you commonly see around at shopping centers. They deal in volume and you need to know that nothing is labeled. You drive in and ask do you have ..., they will point you in a direction. Plants do not have descriptions, know what you want before you go. If you need a lot of plants and know what you want, its worth it.

If you go across the street to Old Stage Rd. nursery, the owner who is usually there is very helpful answering questions about 'do you have XXX?' or telling you specifics about a given plant that you might be interested in.
