General Nurseries

Primarily Nuts

Canadian nurseries of concern (google for reviews - users have had less than positive experiences)

Rabbit Ridge in NC is another good one.

Wallace-Woodstock
http://wallace-woodstock.com/
Good cold hardy fruit trees and berries. Good selection.
I’ve ordered from them and received very good plants.


#5

I took a chance on Pense Berry Farm this year. I ordered several different types of Blackberries and Raspberries. The overall transaction was as expected. I got them in the time frame I specified and the bare roots I got were of good quality. All plants are growing well.


#6

Ditto on Wallace Woodstock. I ordered a Macoun and Cortland from them this spring. Trees were at least 9/16" caliper, good rootball and about 4’ tall. Price was reasonable for what I got (~$27). I don’t think they listed the rootstock on their site, but told me they were M7.

Trees are doing well after awaking from dormancy in May. Had to wait a bit for them due to their grounds were still frozen when I ordered, but the trees were in good shape when I got them.

Oh, and Plant Me Green out of Florida has a good selection of pecan trees, along with pears, peaches, and other fruit trees and some berries. Seems like a lot of their products are geared to southern growers, but they do have some items that will grow in northern climes.

Cumberland Valley Nursery. Mostly southern peaches

Finch Blueberry Nursery. Lots of bareroot blueberry both RE, NHB, SHB variety buy may not have some of the newer licensed variety.

Thanks for the suggestions. I made the updates. At some point a description is also needed on all the nurseries, feel free to take a crack at the ones without descriptions.


#13

Just a note to say that CVN still accepts wholesale AND retail orders over the phone.

Here is a copy of their catalog as of today: Nov. 7, 2016:


#14

Very generous of you to post that! Too bad their min. is $100 or I might have ordered something. One of the few to have peaches on Guardian.


#15

My order is less than $100 and they gave me no trouble on the phone.


#16

Thanks Matt! I put a pdf version in the list for easy downloading.


#17

Vaughn Nursery has most of the same varieties at about the same price as Cumberland Valley and does not have a minimum that I am aware of. I currently have an order with Vaughn of just 3 peach trees.

I found this listing of nurseries that Cornell University put together for small fruit plants.
They do mention to check them out before doing business. Brady

PS It looks like one on the list,The Local Blueberry’s link redirects to a (Russian?) adult website.Cornell probably doesn’t maintain this list too closely. Brady
