soule-southwest-nurseries
We have all heard the plea to “Shop Local” but what if you are new in town and don’t know where the local nurseries are?! 

I am here to help you succeed with your Southwest Gardening, and thus I am working to compile this list of local (for you) nurseries that sell plants adapted to the Southwest.  I have not been to them all (but working on it!) so let me know if you have had good or bad experiences, or notice one I am missing.

Please also let me know about plant selling locals – including folks that may sell at Farmers Markets!

A big shout out to Mountain States Wholesale Nursery!  This Arizona-based wholesaler helped me start this list and provided input for some of these further away areas.

Scroll down for Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah.
