Fruit Plant List - 2014
 
Ordering Information:
 
Fruit plants should arrive at our office the beginning of April.
We will contact you upon plant arrival. All plants are bare-rooted and should be picked up and planted quickly for good success. We recommend having your planting bed prepared and tree holes dug ahead of time in case of rainy weather.
 
Order your fruit trees soon because varieties sell out quickly.

Straw For Sale
We still have lots of high quality straw for sale at $5.00 a bale. Straw mulch not only helps control summer weeds, it also helps keep the soil tempatures cooler and prevents your soil from drying out too quickly. This will greatly reduce your watering chores (and bills) for the summer. Straw is a great choice if you have a large garden since a bale can thickly mulch a large area.
