The Hines Nursery Bankruptcy story is responsible for the largest amount of traffic to this site since we started in July of 2005. I realize that it is a huge story. A lot of independent garden centers and nurseries depend on Hines for much of their stock. They may not have the access to regional growers like we do here in California. They are concerned and worried about who, if anybody is next. We all know that the nursery business is in a rapid state of change. All we can do sometimes is just hold on for the ride. Here is a link to more post we have done on Hines.
