Default For those with a green thumb

Anybody in the Metro Detroit area have good recommendations for nurseries? I am looking at picking up a bunch of potted hostas, ferns, etc. for a shady wooded area and don't want to pay Home Depot prices and not really all that impressed with the selection at the farmer's market by my office.

I would prefer something in Oakland County but can drive a bit if the price is right.

Probably Marine City Nursery. They have a great selection - my parents live nearby and have been going to them for years. If I don't find anything by me this week or next, maybe I'll have to make a trip out there next weekend.

I split too many from my mom last year. I am prohibited from entering the gardens at my parents house for two years according to my dad.
