Where Is A Good Place To Purchase Vegetable Plants In…

Craig Asked

Where is a good place to purchase vegetable plants in Louisville?

The Gardener’s Answer

Hello, Craig: We are fortunate here in Louisville to have a many locally owned garden centers that provide top quality plant material. Of course, I am biased and think the best garden center in Louisville is the Plant Kingdom on Westport Road in St. Matthews. Depending on where you live in the city, Wallitsch on Hikes Lane or Boone Gardiner in Crestwood may be closer options for you. They are both reliable sources for vegetables as well as any of the Paul’s Fruit Markets around the city. They usually have the plants as well the harvested crop. Trying to find vegetable plants in July is not going to be as easy as during the previous spring months. You may not be able to find specific varieties you are looking for. It might be worth a phone call before venturing out. Cool-season crops such as broccoli, lettuce, and cabbage will be ready to plant shortly.
