A local nursery just called around noon and told me that a little tree, Magnolia Vulcan, just arrived with my name on it! I couldn't believe they remembered to get it for me. It was about 2 months ago when I first went to the nursery in an early spring day and I said to a salesperson that I was hoping to buy a rare magnolia tree called Vulcan. He wrote the name down and quickly asked my name and then hurried off to get something else . I never thought he would follow through, get the little tree for me and then call me to let me know that it's here. They even tagged it with my name already. Pretty awesome custom service.

I love my local nurseries also.
No way I'll deal with Home Depot or Lowe's; they are lacking in selection AND service!

Same here. My local nursery grows everything from seeds and bulbs and are acclimated to my climate. No Bonnie's Plant Farm generic stuff. Prices are about equal to the big box stores too. If I want something special, they will find it and let me know. And the veggies the hail storm destroyed? They replaced them at no charge.
