With the slow decline of Rarefind Nursery, I have found that I have no place to visit and browse, which is the best part about buying plants :D Does anyone know any places to visit that have a good Sarracenia selection in NJ, NY, CT, or Eastern PA? There's a wholesale supplier in Bucks County that looks promising, but I'm pretty sure they're not allowing tours at this time. Thank you!

Not a lot of places right now have visiting tours. Sarracenia Northwest is a good place to order from though. Do you know the wholesaler? Thanks

Quite a few. NE is in Trumansburg, NY. Bergen Water Gardens also has a bit.

It was my favorite pastime to stop at Rarefind, buy some plants, and then go into the Pine Barrens to explore finding plants in situ. It was pretty cool that their whole nursery was open to the public, and if you wanted to check out their propagation house, they wouldn't mind showing you around.

The wholesaler is Aquascapes Unlimited located in Pipersville, PA. Looks like a really cool place, and not that far of a drive from me, but they have a minimum $200 order. Totally understandable that most places are closed to the public, but they've appeared at the Philadelphia Flower Show a couple times, and this year it's being held outdoors. Might be incentive enough to finally visit the show? Anybody who has been and think it's worth it?

I have dealt with Native Exotics before, and the person who was running their stand at the expo was awesome. Super nice guy, and even cooler plants available in person than on their website. I've heard great things about Bergen Water Gardens. Unfortunately each nursery is about a four hour to six hour drive respectively from where I live :cry:
