Planting a garden, regardless of size, can be an exciting and fulfilling experience. Whether you're a green thumb enthusiast or a first-time gardener looking for some fresh greenery in your backyard, you've probably heard of wholesale nurseries. But what exactly are they?

Wholesale nurseries are businesses that produce and distribute large quantities of plants to retail stores, landscapers, garden centers, and even directly to the public. Take a look at some of the types of nursery wholesale products available on the market today.

Trees & Shrubs

The main categories of trees and shrubs available from a wholesale nursery include ornamental trees, shade trees, fruit trees (for home or commercial use), evergreen shrubs, flowering shrubs, conifers, hedges/screening plants, and ground cover plants.

Ornamental trees offer aesthetics such as beauty, color, and fragrance. They can also create a natural barrier or windbreak around your home or garden. Shade trees are important for providing cooling shade in the summer and protection from wind. Fruit trees can provide fresh, homegrown fruit, while evergreen shrubs create an excellent backdrop for your garden.

Flowering shrubs are ideal for adding color to the landscape and can attract beneficial pollinators like bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Conifers provide year-round interest with their unique foliage colors and textures.

Hedges or screening plants effectively block noise and create privacy in your yard. All these types of plants can be found in abundance at wholesale nurseries with unique varieties to suit any landscaping need.

Ground Covers & Vines

Ground covers are easy-to-grow perennials that spread quickly by runners or stems that root at each node. Examples include ivy and vinca vines which make great ground cover options for areas where grass won't grow well due to lack of sunlight or challenging soil conditions.

Vines add vertical interest while softening hard lines around patios or other outdoor structures. They also provide seasonal color with their flowers and foliage. In addition, vines can be trained to cover trellis, walls, and arbors for additional privacy. This process takes some time and patience, but the end result is a beautiful way to enhance your outdoor living space.

Perennials & Annuals

Annuals are plants that complete their life cycle in one growing season. They live only during the warm months and then die off when temperatures cool down in autumn. On the other hand, perennials come back year after year.

They may die back in winter but will regrow again in spring when temperatures warm up again. Both annuals and perennials provide many different colors and textures suitable for all kinds of gardens – from cottage styles to formal designs.

You can find various kinds of seasonal plants at a wholesale nursery, allowing you to create a one-of-a-kind garden that reflects your own style and tastes. Just remember to read the plant tags to ensure you get varieties suited for your growing zone, as well as ones that are hardy enough for your intended use.
