We are doing mini succulents in pots for our favours. I have found several reasonable suppliers in the US … the problem is they won’t / can’t ship into Canada (there is obviously strict rules on live plants crossing boarders).
I have found a few suppliers in my area but they want $2.50+ per succulent … so much more than in the US! We need about 120 so this would add up!
Please share your suggestions / past experience!

Have you tried going to a local nursery? If they don’t have them, I’m sure they can order them for you and might give you a bulk rate.

Where in Canada are you?
Most greenhouses would carry them.
Also, have you tried farmer’s markets or Ikea?

I have been to a few in my local area. They are prices at $2.50 each … we found one greenhouse that would give a 10% discount so that would bring them down to $2.25 each. Still a little pricy. On Etsy they are available for $1.38 each which is a great savings but unfortunately that is in US only!

I wouldn’t count on getting them for much of a lower price, then. Most everything is more costly here. By all means call around to other greenhouses, but that ~60% mark up seems about right for plants.

see_22: Contact the nursery not the greenhouse – I used to work at a garden centre/greenhouse where everything was brought in from another (local) greenhouse/importer. The markup was at least 100% (double)
