No one knows the native plant life like your local gardener. They are well informed and know what plants can be planted with each other and which ones complement each other. Helping you figure out what type of plants you are looking for. Maybe you are looking to attract different types of butterflies or even the different kinds of birds you want to have in your garden.
Aware of the Local Climate
Local gardeners are able to keep you informed as to what time to plant which types of plants. Plants that need a lot of sunlight should not be planted during the rainy season.
Care of the Plants
For the most part, local nurseries’ employees care more about their neighbors and are more willing to help out with much needed advice especially for new gardeners. Not only do they care about your garden, but they also care about beautifying the local neighborhood.
You will also be assisted with what type of pruning and watering schedule you need to do to take care of the plants.
By buying local, you support the local community. This is crucial for small businesses. Plus you are keeping your money in your neighborhood which helps fuel the local economy.
Plus most local nurseries grow all of their own plants. This gives them an advantage over big box stores which more often than not get them shipped in. Most likely their plants are also more robust than from other stores.
