Q: Is there a directory of nurseries and greenhouses in northeastern Georgia and what their specialties are? Often you mention on radio the names of such places but, if I don’t have pencil and paper in hand, I miss getting the information.
A: The Lawn and Garden Yellow Pages (www.giyp.com) has exactly what you want. Simply type “Nursery” and your ZipCode into the search box and you’ll get a list of nurseries within fifty miles of your house. You can also search for nurseries that carry specific kinds of plants or garden supplies. If you’re researching specific plants, the site also offers “Virtual Plat Tags”, which give the salient features of thousands of plants.
