Good place for buying spring/Easter plants?

asiatic lily closeupKristin emails:

I am looking for a local nursery that sells beautiful Spring/Easter plants, such as lillies, hyacinths, tulips, etc.With the first day of spring (almost) behind us, and the holiday approaching, I am hoping your readers can provide some good suggestions!

These sorts of plants seem to pop up in all sorts of stores around this time of year, often packaged for easy giving. But, as Kristin mentions, we suspect you're going to find the best selection and quality at a local nursery or a shop that regularly deals in flowers.

Got a favorite spot for buying these types of plants? Please share!

Faddegon's in Latham is my go-to place for this sort of thing. While they can be a little pricey, they usually have great holiday plant choices at different price points.

Valoze's Greenhouse on Route 9 in Latham (their website lists it as Cohoes) is a terrific place to get seasonal plants anytime of the year. They have beautiful plants and great prices.

Honest Weight Food Co-op has lovely plants!

Hewitt's has several locations

Every spring I buy the $1.00 herbs at Schultz Greenhouse in Glenville. They have plenty of flowers too! I can endorse Valoze's also... Bon Chance!
