POTTED FRUIT TREES ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR SHIPMENTS. LOCAL PICK UP ONLY.
This collection is offered for those gardeners who enjoy eating what they plant! Our 'Orchard Collection' consists of fruiting trees, shrubs, brambles, vines, and other perennial fruit-producing nursery stock. Included are familiars such as apple, pear, cherry, peaches, and blueberry. But, we try and add a few items that more adventurous gardeners might enjoy and items to share with the wildlife that we co-exist with. There can be enough for everyone.
Having spent many years waiting for a new planting to grow into production, we understand some of the anxiety many of you have with buying an expensive orchard plant such as an apple or peach tree. This is why we spend the time to evaluate every variety and grower before adding a selection to our Orchard Collection. First, 'Is the juice worth the squeeze'? There is no sense investing in a fruit tree only to find out years later that it isn't a fruit that you particularly care for! So, we weed out any variety that just doesn't 'measure up' in terms of flavor, texture, productivity, or other critical attributes. Consequently, some familiar varieties you may be used to seeing in your supermarket will not be seen here. Alternately, you are likely to see a few unfamiliar faces and we will always do our best to describe why we chose to have a particular selection available. Second, we are very careful in who we purchase our nursery stock from. Well-grown nursery stock will yield the best result for you, the gardener. And contrary to popular belief, bigger is not always better! So, we only buy material that we know has been carefully nurtured for successful shipping and transplanting. Third, we make every attempt to give you fare descriptions of each variety so that you can select the fruiting tree that is most likely to fill your idea of what 'good' is. And finally, while our pricing will not be the lowest you can find, we are confident that the quality and reliability of our fruit trees and shrubs will be the absolute best value that you can find.
PLEASE NOTE: Potted nursery stock IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR SHIPMENT. Only bare root material is packaged for shipping.
As with the vast majority of what we offer for sale, the material in the 'Orchard Collection' is all hardy down to at least USDA Growing Zone 5.
