or those folks especially wanting to increase thevariety of plants in their perennial edible gardens....


I realize this goes against the principle of buying locally to be more carbon neutral, BUT I came across the University of Idaho research nursery, where tey have a number of interesting plug seedlings, including rosa rugosa, bearberry, various wild/native cherries, highbush cranberry (viburnum) and numerous conifers, for reasonable prices, in 5 plant quantities.

Coldstream Farm has a number of plants we all might find useful, in varying sizes, from 6-12" to 5' plus. Aronia, hackberry, walnut (black), etc..

I've purchased from Burnt Ridge Nursery and been satisfied with the plants they shipped. They have a wide variety of fruiting and nut bearing plants, many natives.

One Green World Nursery has a nice selection of both natives and unusual plants. Prices are a bit on the high side, though.

Several others out here offer interesting plants, but generally smaller selection. Eastern Plant Specialties, for instance, offers aice selection of berrying groundcovers, including cranberry, blueberry, weeping dogwood and wintergreen.
