As the winter months slip by, many of us already have our heads out in the garden and scheming our next tree plantings for the garden. Some of us also happen to be plugging along in graduate school which can feel like quite the distraction at times. However, this high diversity agro-ecologically focused tree nursery plods along, not quite in standby and not quite in expansion, but continuing nonetheless to offer small quantities of extremely healthy disease resistant fruit, nut, and otherwise useful trees.
Please find attached our list of available trees for the coming season. We have an expanded selection of Paw Paw varieties this year (both grafted and seedling), as well as a hearty selection of both European and Asian pears selected primarily for flavor and disease resistance. There are some other interesting options in there as well including some very nice sized nitrogen fixing, drought tolerant Italian Alders, blight resistant European x Asian Chestnut's, Ginkgo's, Japanese Quince, Mulberry, hybrid Oaks, a few plums, and some hard to find fruit trees such as Date Plums and the delicious and disease resistant Shipovas, (a cross between Rowan and Pear).
As before, we offer trees that are either bare rooted (ship while still dormant in early spring), as well as in deep (14 inches deep!!) pots designed specifically for tree production so as not to induce root spiraling and eventual tree self constriction (A potential problem with those round pot home depot trees). The bare root trees also come with a healthy root system that has been allowed to grow freely as it will. These trees anchor themselves extremely well and result in very healthy trees, however, obviously there is a smaller window by which you can transplant them.
Trees can be shipped or picked up.
What we don't have is large stocks of anything. So if you want it... if you are even thinking about it...better to act quickly.
If you feel overwhelmed with the options and just cannot decide if you want a Mango Paw Paw or an IXL...give a shout. We can try to help you out best we can
