Here are the very beginnings of a resource list I hope to expand on over time.
Dave’s Garden Plant Files
A large repository of information about all kinds of plants.
Most of my hostas came from this company. I made a big order in 2011 and have been pretty happy with the results. I really like that you can filter their hosta selection by slug and sun resistance. They have other great shade plants too, along with a few sun selections.
Savage Plants & Landscape
I love this nursery! It’s not far from our house as the crow flies but unfortunately there’s a ferry ride involved. If that weren’t the case this would be my go-to plant source. Savage is a bit smaller than the mainland nurseries I frequent which makes for a less daunting browsing session. And they make up for their smaller size by having a better selection of unusual plants. We’ve picked up some great hard-to-find shade plants on our way back from trips to Bainbridge or the Olympic Peninsula. If it’s open when we pass by, it’s pretty much a given that we will stop and have a look around.
