Here is a resource list I hope to expand on over time. I don’t receive any compensation from companies on this list, I just like them enough that I thinkthey deserve mentioning!

Regional Mail Order Nurseries

Dancing Oaks
I ordered well-packaged hardy geraniums and carex in 2021. Plus theyhave a whole web page dedicated to the nursery cats and dogs!


Gardener’s Supply Company
I’ve purchased a few items from this Vermont-based company. They not only have a great selection but seem to have a great company culture and commitment to giving back to the community.

Greenhouse Megastore
I found some great looking trellis cables on this UK-based company’s site after not much luck stateside. My order arrived quickly and the system was super easy to assemble. I highly recommend their MiniPro cable system if you are looking for something a little nicer than typical hardware store offerings.


I love that this horticulturist and former nursery owner,unlike many other garden channels, both shows plants and posts their common and botanical names. And he’s chill! (the irrational exuberance of many YouTubers wears me out). As of this writing he posts several videos a week plus, and you can peruse his large library of propagation/division/transplanting and general gardening know-how videos. Based in North Carolina in zone7B.

Garden Style NW
Garden Style NW is the YouTube channel for local nursery owner Debbie (Sunnycrest near Port Orchard). Each episode she introduces a few plant varieties and talks about their uses and care.I find this more informative than simply looking at photos online, and everything she shows is curated for our local climate.

Design tips and garden tours from Portland-based landscape designer Darcy Daniels.
