Looking for a large garden nursery that preferably offers classes in gardening and the local plants here. Also looking for some really cool pots. We went to Calloways and thought it was nice, but kinda pricey. We did find a hibiscus that I have never seen before called a Rum Runner that starts out red when it blooms and then the outside ring turns orange and then yellow.

Thanks for the help!

I don't know if they offer classes or not but Redenta's has a lot of native and unusual plants and employees who know about them. I wouldn't classify them as "large" but they have several locations in the area. We go to the one on Arkansas Lane in Arlington.

Jackson's in Dallas is a beautiful nursery with a huge selection of pots, etc. It's been a few years since I've been there but I doubt it has changed. It's on Lemmon Ave. near Love Field. It's not inexpensive.

Try Weston Gardens. I'm not sure of the address, but it is below I-20 close to Arlington. They deal in native plants and have huge gardens that you can walk around. They offer all kinds of workshops.

Redenta's is very good. They do organic and native plants. They have a newsletter online that has some good suggestions for seasonal help.

Also, TCU works with BRIT and offers courses. Good luck!
