Some pointers before planting new orchard

I will keep all my trees in pot until I move and get my couple of acres.


Yeah, we may invest in a post hole digger… we need to fence all this in anyway so it will serve double duty.


I got a DWN Red Fuji and waiting on a cresthaven peach from Stark’s to ship. I’m sure I’ll add more.


I stopped counting at 50 and there’s a whole bunch more than that. I think I’d be picking up a gas powered earth auger at the least, and preferably renting a skidsteer with an auger instead.


A PTO driven post hole digger, we have 4 tractors.


It looks like I did it again. I wasn’t going to order much new this year, just take better care of what I have. Well, I just sat down to make up a list of what I have ordered so far. Eighteen trees or bushes, plus strawberries and asparagus. Is there no hope for persons like me? Maybe we should have a branch called growingfruitaholics anonymous. Heeellllppppp……


I added two Montmorency Cherry’s on Mahaleb to my Cummins order, but in my defense I HAD too because the cherry tree I already have needs a pollinator…


Oh my, that’s terrible. Just awful.
So, what varieties did you get? :grin:


Well, I’ve ordered 85 APPLE rootstocks…plus whatever leftover 2018 stocks I have… and seedlings are big enough to graft to.
Looks like they’ll mostly be planted in pots…as I don’t have cleared land for nearly that many.

So, we’ll see, last year I grafted 2 or 3 of 32 different varieties. This year will be in the same ballpark.

I have seedling pawpaws and will plant more seeds this spring. A couple Jujubee, too. And I may order some more gooseberries.


Crandall Black Currant, 2 Belaruska currants, Pequot Lakes Black Raspberry, Cold Snap pear, PF24 Peach, Contender Peach (I was never ever going to plant any more peaches, but needed an item to get free shipping and had read about planting them in trenches and pruning them to only knee high. Yah, I know) Wowza cherry, Dorris, McDonald, and bush hazelnuts, Scout apricot, Reka and Toro Blueberry, Layeroka chestnut, Kokusu Mulberry, 2 Schisandras, Earliglow strawberries, and 50 asparagus plants. I don’t need any of it. Sigh.


Below is a pic of the trees I ordered from Peaceful Heritage Permaculture Nursery. The trees are not large but the shipping was inexpensive. 3 pears and 1 peach. Ayers & 2 Warren Pears and a Jefferson Peach.


In addition to to the above I just put in an order with Ison’s for the following:
Korean Giant pear
Li jujube
Stayman winesap apple
Arkansas black apple


I just had to pull a Bartlett pear due to fireblight damage, I’m planning on putting an apricot or an aprium in its place and planting a warren pear in a new location.


Ison’s has been terrific for me!


Ditto. Ison’s is a very good company to deal with. Very customer oriented.


I decided to do some shrub type work for a few areas in my drive and around the garden and a wet area i have…I ordered 10 Winterberry since they say they like the kind of more wet type areas and the berries will feed animals…image
I also did 20 Chokeberry plants for the drive to feed deer and anything else that wants them…1539782934 1539782936
And then i saw some Rose of Sharon in here and decided that would be PERFECT right by my Camper to buffer it and my garden…Got 10 of those…1513992036 I love planting time! I’m excited…Got 50 New Highbush Bluberry coming too!!!



Not that I’m going to order one, but I was looking on Ison’s site and they have a sale on Li jujube trees. They’re on sale for $30, so I don’t know if that’s a good price. I feel like I’m some kind of accomplice in sharing this…

Looks like someone else already posted info on this, but here it is again anyway.


I just placed an order for it. I asked them to ship in last week of March. Hopefully the will notice the note and wait at least a month to ship.
