Prices are considerably lower and selection is greater than the Albuquerque retail locations of High Country Gardens. Generally, there is at least one knowledgeable plant person on duty at all times. Plants of the Southwest also has the best seed catalogue in NM for xeric plants, shrubs and trees.

A free guide to native desert plants was very useful, and I have spend much time perusing it. There were a few plants in the open areas which had withered and should have been removed. Generally speaking, though, seeing plants out in the sun gave me a better idea of which species could survive the harsh local weather. Unlike a previous reviewer, I did not find plant displays too crowded - maybe this is a matter of taste? Overall, a great resource for local gardeners, especially ones like myself who are learning to garden in the NM climate.

Their location is too sunny for many of the bedding and vegetable plants that they sell---stuff dries out and stunts. They need to put up much more effective shade cloths than they have in place now.

Good place to buy mulch like pecan shells, and a good library of gardening books for the area. GREAT SEED SELECTIONS for native plants.
