Question Tampa Wholesale Palm Trees

I did my landscape a while ago in Tampa. I posted a photo up here before and people told me what they were and I went and got them. However I paid a pretty penny for all those palm trees at some retail place in Tampa Florida off of Nebraska or was it Linebaugh. I forget. Well I spent close to 1,000. I wanted to find a wholesale place in Tampa that will sell to the public. I want good prices with out paying for their over head. Any one know of any wholesale plant or palm tree nurseries in Tampa? Tampa is congested but there has to be some growers of palm trees close by. I wanted to ask if Royal Palms will grow in Tampa too?

On my list of palm trees to get from a wholesale place in tampa are:

European Fan Palms
More Sago Palms
Queen Palms
Mexican Fan Palms
and Sylvester Date Palm

I looked on here for prices but its looks like they are retail. I might call them to see if they will do wholesale since I am ordering lots of different palm trees.

Default Tampa Palm Wholesale and Growers

Well it looks like Tampa is more a city town, lots of buildings almost like Miami or St Pete. You may want to try to look on the outskirts of Tampa for palm growers. Maybe somewhere that there is lots of land. Most likely palm growers and plant growers are located out of surrounding city life. They need lots of land to grow these palms and to turn around there money. I bet if you did a search for palm growers or wholesale nurseries in surrounding areas of Tampa, I am sure you will find something. Now the next issue is how for you to buy wholesale at these wholesale only fields. There are a few tricks I have learned from past experiences. If you have a large order that is even better. You will first want to come up with a landscaping name or a company name that deals with plants and palms. Then contact them as if you were contacting them for your boss. Same your name and then your name of the Company. Find out the Botanical Name of the trees and refer to them as that. Once you have the list call them and ask for those palm trees. Tell them you will need to pick them up for a job that needs to be done asap. Most likely if you know what you are talking about, they wont ask you for papers or identification. Palm growers are laid back its the nurseries that offer wholesale give you the hard problems. they want tax Id number and business license. I whole bunch of stuff. Well Hopefully I helped. I haven't personally delt with any palm growers in that area so I cant help you out there..

good luck with the palm search.

Default Tampa Wholesale Palm Nurseries

Tampa Wholesale Palm Nurseries:

Pinewaters Nursery
Tree Depot
tree mart I think. Re-Wholesalers

To find growers is hard especially not being able to see there nursery. You only have what google gives you. But I have found that lots of people that grow aren't listed on google seaches. Growers are growers and only sell to wholesale places or landscapers and sometimes they wont even sell to landscapers. I think right now any one would want your business with this economy though. Some times for even better deals you can go with places where they are actually grown. I heard of place called homestead florida where almost everything we get is grown there from seedlings and what not.

Default St. Pete Palm Nursery. Saweet

So does Ken have big palms? Tampa girl is MIA! Hopefully she doesn't end up going to some retail center paying triple the cost for palms and plants.

There should be some Local Tampa Nurseries. I Googled Tampa Florida Nursery.

Kens Palm Trees
wesley chapel nursery
Best Value Plant Nursery
Hardeman Landscape Nursery

I think this place real palm trees is based out of Sarasota or in Miami. Maybe instead of doing all the heavy lifting you can just have it delivered. Just a thought.

Ken's last day of business was today until next year...He's been running a Christmas tree "store" for years, and just recently took up palms... He's got nice sized ones, up to 25g, and also some B&B ones. The more you go south, the better the palms though

Default Tampa Nursery (Palm Trees) Old Florida Palms

I actually found this place. I was asking some of my friends and one of them mentioned that their father owns a little piece of property in front of their house. There were a bunch of Lady palms, Pindo Palms, Very Big European Fan Palms. He didn't mind selling me some of his inventory at wholesale price. I got the Europeans Fan Palms from there and the Queen Palms. They are in gallon containers. I think 25 gallon. I was very pleased at the quality. Also thank you to all of you for your efforts. I have also jotted those places down. I still want some more palms. It seems like I cant get enough now.

I am still looking for some Sago Palms, rather big. Like 4 ft tall.

Default Wholesale Grower

Hello,

The wholesale prices on different websites are based on truckload prices, less than full truckloads and the prices may be slightly higher than you see there but still very competitive prices and they could also do installations and removals as well.

Default Mule Palm.

By the way the Mule palm has been preselected by the Florida Nursery grower and landscaping association has preselected the Mule Palm as one of the 2012 plants of the year.
