No, we are wholesale only. We sell to garden centers, landscape installers etc. If you are interested in our products we can direct you to a retailer in your area.

Plant minimums are at least 5 of an item if #1 to #3. All other plants are ok ordered as eaches. We do ask whenever possible, to order at least a few of an item. It really helps our staff pull orders more efficiently and timely.  Please give us a call with questions.

Yes, our plants have picture tags attached. You also have the option of ordering custom price tags. There is an annual setup fee of $250 if ordered by March 1st.  Order custom tags when you place your nursery order. We will send you a form to complete your retail pricing, SKU (or plant number), and your company name or logo. All tag setup information needs to be supplied to NFF by March 1st.
