Vendor ended up refunding our money. Thank you. DO NOT PURCHASE FROM HERE! In early March, my husband and I purchased two grasses that go dormant through the winter so yes, they looked dead but that's how this plant behaves. As of today, the company would not stand behind selling us two dead plants! They never sprouted for the spring growth season. Granted they were 40% off in March but did not include a sign that said "Dead or Alive, 40% off"! I repeated: DO NOT SHOP HERE! They take your hard earned money!

Bates Nursery & Garden Center
Going to Bates Nursery is a real treat, almost a day trip out Whites Creek Pike. I love their selection of herbs and perennials. They are also very generous by donating leftover vegetable plants at the end of the growing season to nonprofits.

This garden center puts a greater emphasis on native and hard-to-find plants than big box stores, as well as providing a high quality soil amendments for our Tennessee clay! However, when I ordered several native shrubs, it took a while for them to locate them at other wholesale nurseries which delayed their planting to the drought days of summer. As a result, few flourished. I wish they had been more up front about the timing when I ordered.

I love this shop! They have great items for gardening and other dIy projects. They are friendly and seem happy to help. The store is the right size, you won't get lost, but they still have a good selection

Allied Cab
We booked Allied Taxi to take my handicapped uncle and family out to dinner. He is in a wheelchair and Allied is one of the few taxi companies in Nashville that can take a wheelchair. They picked us up on time at 5:45 pm. We had a return reservation at 8 pm at the restaurant to take us home, but Allied did not show up until 11 pm. We were frantic because the restaurant was closing. My uncle was almost in tears. Never again will we use Allied Taxi.

Their selection is limited, which is understandable given its location in downtown Nashville, but there's enough variety (and a wonderful selection of house plants) that makes up for this.

Love everything about Bates Nursery, from their selection to service. It's totally worth the drive out to Whites Creek. Ninety percent of the plants and trees in our yard are from Bates.

This is an awesome garden center. Lots of flowers and plants. Not a large store, but, their employees know what they are doing. They have things that you won't find at Home Depot or Lowe's! Located at the Nashville Farmer's Market.
Tips & Advices
The primary service of nurseries is production and/or sale of plants, trees, and related products. Some nurseries provide delivery and installation of plants and trees. Nurseries can also provide irrigation materials, service and irrigation management, landscape design and maintenance, lawn care, and tree service and maintenance.
While there are many nurseries that provide various product guarantees (usually with limitations), each establishment has its own set of rules and policies. Ask questions and do your research before buying.
Nurseries are able to nurture a plant from seedling to mature plant with skill, potentially increasing its longevity and health. All you have to do is maintain it. Nurseries have the resources and personnel to handle a wide variety of plant life, which creates a more diverse selection for the consumer, and can help  guide you in growing your own green thumb.
Besides the obvious geographical difference, the main thing separating indoor from outdoor plants is their temperature tolerance. Some require cooler temperatures and shade; others need more direct sunlight and warmth; some are flexible and able to thrive in either environment, provided the temperature differences are not extreme.
The best plants for low-maintenance care include ficus, spider plant, Mother In Law’s Tongue, cacti or cactus, Peace Lily, Touch-Me-Not, ivy, succulents, and Kalanchoe. Each of these plants requires minimal watering and attention (but still might like you to talk to them).
