What is the cheapest place to purchase Dogwood trees in the area. We are not looking for anything that huge and do not mind waiting and watching it grow (Although we would not turn down a large Dogwood tree either).

Thoughts?

Around SW Durham would be preferred.

You should probably try Lowes or Home Depot for cheap ones.

previous questions about where to purchase trees and shrubs around here have resulted in alot of recommendations for the farmers market in raleigh. This is a great place for good prices on anything green including trees, shrubs and perennials.

Others sing the praises of Broadwells and close by nurseries in Angier. They say you can fill up a pick up truck or large vehicle for about $100 but most things are not labeled, or priced and you need to know what you want without walking thru isles like Lowes. Apparently you drive around on dirt roads. I haven't tried it yet but will in the next few weeks

If you are only looking for a few trees I guess Lowes or HD would be best.

You said SW Durham. But, if you want to drive into Raleigh, Taylor's Nursery on New Bern at Trawick has a great selection of trees, shrubs, etc. and would be the size you want. They are local owned and have been here forever! I've found their prices reasonable and lower than many of the fancier nurseries in town. And, going thru Knightdale towards Wendell on hwy 64 E there's one on the right after leaving Kdale, Michael??? They have a great selection of plants and I would expect the prices to be cheaper than Raleigh.

Haven't been there in a while, but Broadwell's is indeed less expensive than most other local nurseries. Also true about the lack of prices and all the driving around you have to do. I always have trouble finding someone to pay when I've finally loaded up the car, too.

That said, there are a lot of other nurseries that have sprung up around Broadwell's, and some of them have pretty good deals as well. I'd say it's worth a trip if you don't mind driving a bit.
