Ordered a couple things from Burnt Ridge, wanted to make a few notes here:
- Burnt Ridge is generally significantly cheaper than most of their competitors. On the flip side their trees tend to be a bit smaller. I’m cheap, I’d rather get more trees, and their trees have always done well, they just tend to be smaller. This year I got 5 Caroline raspberries which, true to form, were smaller. But I also got this:
that’s the honey jar I ordered, it was like $35. Very impressed with it. I don’t do caliper but it is like 4’ tall above the root mass
On the flip side, I ordered 10 Bud118. Last year I ordered B118 and they ran out, I complained several times (I understand, not their fault, but they put ME in a bind and told me very late. So this year I asked them to ship as early as possible, specifically because I was afraid of B118 going on backorder.
Here is my 10 rootstock.
I sent a letter pointing out that they are B9, but sent it late Friday. I expect they will ship 10 B118, I checked my invoice and the error is theirs, not mine, but will keep folks updated.
I also got 5 pear and 5 persimmon rootstock, all looking good but didn’t bother to take photos of those.
