Does anybody have any recommendations on a good, inexpensive place to buy mature trees/large shrubs? We are looking to plant some leylands (or other type of fast growing large trees) in our backyard to seperate our yard from a sidewalk/road. Any recommendations would be helpful! Thank you.

Check out Broadwell's nursery in Angier; it's worth the drive. It is a wholesale nursery with acres upon acres of plants. A few words of warning: the plants are not marked with any sort of identification so its best if you can id plants yourself or take a gardening buddy with you. Also, they do not take credit cards. We have always paid in cash, but I think they take checks. I'm not sure if they are open on Sundays.

They are located at 7110 Old Stage Rd N. in Angier. Expect to pay about $25 for a tree you would find for $200 in a commercial nursery. Seriously, its worth the trip.
