I've been keeping indoor, tropical houseplants for years, but have decided to build a greenhouse. As a result, I'm interested in hearing about good places to buy houseplants in the Northeast USA.

Here are the places that I know about, and like very much.

1. Mahoney's Garden Center. Winchester, MA, and other locations.

2. Russells Garden Center. Wayland MA.

3. Adams Fairacre Farms. Poughkeepsie, NY

4. Home Depot. National Chain.

5 . Lowes. National Chain.

6. Logees. Danielson CT.


Possibilities

7. Sam Bridge in Greenwich, CT
8. Woodland Gardens, Manchester CT
9. Gardeners Center, Darien CT




What other places am I missing?

Thanks!

Roger

Sometimes on eBay and Craigslist you can find local sales going on. It's not the first place you might think of, but every once in a while you can really score. One time I saw an ad where somebody's grandfather had died and they were selling his enormous snake plants for $5 each. I didn't get any, but that's the kind of deal that pops up time to time.
Keep going!

If you want really top quality plants and great care advice, then try White Flower Farm in CT. They are expensive but worth it. Request a catalog and settle back for an hour+ of enjoying the photos and information. A vista there in May and June is a must!

They are expensive. I think they produce show quality plants in expensive pots. They are far out of my price range.

I've scored some amazing plants at Home Depot lately. Got a 4 foot, white, bird of paradise plant for $25. 8 inch Lipstick plant for $10. They are all doing really well. I repotted them as soon as they arrived. Oftentimes, the plants from HD are root bound.

Found Clivias at Mahoneys and Logees. Split leaf philodendron at Mahoneys as well.
