I don’t think this topic exists yet . . . but it does now!
I will get this ball rolling - by saying that I have already ordered some replacement Muscadines from Ison’s - that should arrive late winter. My Darlene has come back . . . but others’ reports of low production have me thinking that I will pull it out anyway . . . and one of my Frys as well. I ordered a Summit and a Pam.
I’m hoping to find a reasonable replacement for the Poncirus Trifoliate Snow Dragon I had planted 2 years ago that was stomped on and killed by the cable guy this past spring.
I wouldn’t mind getting a KSU-Chappell (I might have spelled that wrong) as I want to add another named pawpaw to my yard.
I tried getting an Anemone Robustissimma this past spring and settled for a different anemone, so I might look to add what I wanted to start with in spring 2021. I’m also always on the lookout for a Clematis Vienetta and a passiflora incarnata Lemon Chiffon. (though I may never get a chance at these again)
I had a muscadine that I kept potted and was planning on dropping in the ground this past spring, but after 3 years in a pot I had lost it. I think I’ll stick with getting muscadines on those rare occasions I see them at the fruit market.
I dream of being able to order more dwarf fruit trees. I already have 2 dwaft peach and 2 dwaft nectarine but would love to own more dwaft fruit trees. I could get a MacIntosh apple dwaft tree but I just hate those «apples»… Yes, pruning is always possible but owning a «no effort to grow» dwaft fruit trees is a big plus for me because I already have more than 50 planted fruit trees and 35 more coming next spring. Enough work…
Owners of my favorite nursery say that they are more difficult and more expansive to « create » but the results for me is totally worth it! Marc
just put in 3 named cultivar autumn berry rooted cuttings for $5 from fruitwoodnursery.com. also added another aurora honeyberry and a northline Saskatoon. normally don’t plant in the fall but the deals were good and its abnormally wet and warm so they should get to put down roots before the freeze comes back. 3in. of wood chips around them should give further protection.
I’ve got 10 antonovka and 10 ussurian pear rootstocks ordered. Also ordered an Aroostook Sunset apple, and Kaspar’s Winter, Dana Hovey, and Cabot Vermont pear scions from Fedco. I plan to order a few sweet apple scions from TOC in December. I’ll probably trade a few scions with a few folks too.
I have ordered replacement peaches and cherries. I am dreaming of ordering more persimmon rootstock to fix and hopefully establish the big patch we have envisioned.
I am waiting for the nursery I spoke to to send me an invoice. Does anyone know of a source for D. Virginiana if they don’t actually come through? That is one dream I do want to realize. I got to eat some ripe hachia from the store…and it was pretty good.
I am dreaming of ordering orange trees, finger limes calamondins all other kinds of citrus, dragon fruit and figs. The problem is I live in Michigan and can’t (yet) afford to build a geothermal greenhouse.
This guy is definitely doing it right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsZgCz3PQks&t=63s
I’m looking to add a Coral Blaze conelian cherry – but can’t find it outside of OGW (bare root only, out of stock – no guarantee it’ll be in).
Also looking to add a Standing Ovation serviceberry – but can’t find it except for Woody’s (bad reviews) or Sooner ($130 per tree).
Anybody have ideas on alternate sources for those? Those are my biggest concern right now.
After that, would like to add 4 honeyberry – probably the Japanese variety (Maxie, Solo, Kawaii, etc.) but not 100 percent on if those are best in 5a/b. Also need to understand a bit more about their dormant summer cycle – I’m in suburbs so can’t have too much ‘ugly’…
I also would like to add an Eastern Prince Schisandra – need to figure out if I can actually grow them on North face of house and what type of trellis I’d use (would like to grow them on the house face).
I have some stuff on order, and will probably add a few more things.
Reine Claude Verte
Flavor Grenade pluot
Greeen Gage and Early Italian plum scion, with more to come.
I will probably order a few Geneva rootstocks, and Krysmk-1. I will also get some white & pink currants, but I have not settled on varieties yet. I would also like a good American persimmon, if I have room.
