Re: US Garden Centers

It probably was taken through the phone books.   I think it was  one of those 
new tech searches, like the GPS systems that come in vehicles  now that can 
show you every McDonalds and gas station.....it too doesn't show  the smaller 
individual owned stations.  Definitely not very inclusive and  did say it was 
Garden Centers and nurseries.....which I assume would mean larger  ones, but, 
I've found that usually folks that work in even the box stores can  recommend 
other more unique places.   I know here in Houston many of  the folks that work 
in garden centers are plant enthusiasts and can usually  point you in a 
direction of other places.  It's a starting point anyway, I  would think.  Heck, I 
consider myself a well informed person when it comes  to nurseries in this 
area, and yet every month I am told about a new one that is  even in my immediate 
area that I knew nothing about.   Recently found  out about some specialty 
orchid nurseries that I knew nothing about, less than  10 minutes from me.  Woo 
hoo.  LOL

I  certainly wouldn't trust it for Georgia. In my area they've missed all but 
one good one, put in a chain that treats plants like the big box stores,  and 
stuck in several that are wholesale only. It looks like they just  searched 
the yellow pages for "nursery/nurseries" and added anything they  found to 
the list.
