I'm really missing Eastern Market in Detroit! I like to plant lots of flowers/pots. Any suggestions where to buy lots of plants-not the usual Home Depot/Lowes/Walmart-they are WAAAYYY too expensive when you want lots of flowers.

I saw a road sign the other day for TEXAS WHOLESALE (broken link) . It looks like it might be a good choice for you.

Travis I am pretty sure does just cut flowers and some plants.

If you want plants/flowers for gardening, try Fannick's on the eastside. Excellent place.

By the way OP, if you're new in town, you need to realize that outdoor plants in pots here will require daily and sometimes twice daily watering during the peak of summer to keep them from being cooked by the Texas heat. Do yourself a favor and try a few plants in pots this season before committing to a bunch of them.

I buy lots of my plants for yard, patio and indoors from the lady at the Flea Market on Eisenhower road...GREAT plants, great prices. I have no idea what her name is, but just go into the gated outdoor area at the far right of the FleaMarket as you face it and walk to the end of the building and you will see a lot of her outdoor plants hanging and just inside the doors she is in the huge stall surrounded by plants. Always healthy, and I can haul off an entire truck worth for between $100-150 (and I DO mean an ENTIRE truck worth!)

Yes, I've bought plants from her, too. She has a nice little shop set up in there. Very reasonable, too.

that's a great idea paka --- i forgot that my mom gets alot of her plants at the flea markets --- either the one in poteet or the one on fredericksburg behind the old jcpenney's place --- infact she just got 4 HUGE potted gerber daisy plants for $10 --- they were really healthy and looked great...

i was going to suggest Rainbow Gardens on bandera rd --- but i guess if you want to buy alot of plants at one time they would be rather expensive --- but they have a HUGE HUGE place and tons of selection ---

I second Fannick's. I know the owner. We bought a mexican lime tree and a mexican oak and both are doing pretty well.
