We welcome all our wholesale clients to come for a visit. Please come, you will be happy you did!

But please do not bring or send your clients to the nursery to look at or pull plants from our wholesale area.  Our retail area is a great spot for your clients to shop, ask questions, and see what is currently available.  They can take a self-guided tour of the nursery too.

Please bring proof you have an established nursery, landscape, garden center or related business. Nursery License or sales tax number with your first order is welcomed and needed.

Pick Up

Open for Pick Up Monday -Friday   9:00-5:00. Please let us know prior to coming so we can have your order pulled, watered, and ready to go. Our nursery can accommodate trucks and trailers both large and small.


Carolina Native Trucks: $1000.00 minimum order to the Asheville area. Our box trucks fully equipped to delivery your plants.  All fees are based on the size of the load as well as the mileage from Carolina Native to your site. Our delivery fee to Asheville is $150 or 10% of the order, whichever is greater. We will set up a time with you and your staff for delivery. We will call 30 minutes before arrival, if needed. Please have your staff present to unload. There will be additional charges if we are abandoned to unload ourselves (and it makes our guys sad). If you are not in the immediate Asheville area, we have a $2000 order minimum and the delivery cost is 10% of the order or follows the pricing chart below:

Columbia, SC – $600

Knoxville, TN – $500

Greensboro, NC – $500

Charlotte, NC – $500

Greenville/Spartanburg, SC – $400

Highlands/Cashiers, NC – $300

Boone/Banner Elk/Blowing Rock, NC – $250

Hendersonville/Brevard/Waynesville – $250

Pallet racks: Carolina Native can drop ship pallet racks of plants anywhere in the eastern U.S. We have been doing this for years and it works great. There are  no minimums but we do not like to try and ship B&B  plants over 3′ tall. We can offer lift gates, residential delivery and other options for additional fees.

Partial Tractor Trailer loads: We can help with smaller loads because many of our clients are landscaping firms that only need plants for jobs rather than for a holding or re-wholesale yards. All trucks depart as full as possible and are routed carefully. Our minimum order is $4500 for all shared tractor trailer loads.

Full truck loads: No problem. We use reefer trucks from a local firm whose drivers we have used for years are great. They will call, show up on time, and are truly professional.

Claims and Returns

Liabilities and Claims: Liability ceases upon delivery to trucking company, except when delivered by us; then liability ceases upon delivery to customers. All claims shall be in writing within 48 hours of receipt of shipment. Our liability never exceeds the prices invoiced.
