  1. Love the newsletter, any ideas where I can get some Milkweed when the growers get it too the nurseries??

  2. Whenever you want to know what garden centers have a particular plant in stock, it’s best to contact them directly. Every garden center carries different items, and what it has in stock changes throughout the year. For stores and garden centers, check out our Gardening Directory. And when you talk to them, please let them know that you found them through Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com!
