    We have been convinced by you to try growing some Nanking cherries. But your own sale was a little far away. Can you recommend a mail-order or other source? We live in the northern Berkshires (zone 5b). Thanks!!

      Just google Prunus tomentosa and you should turn up some sources.

      mainly the figs (I grew up in Baton Rouge!) and would love a fig bush (I know it has to be babied in the winter).

    Hello, lee

    I could not make the sale yesterday, and just wondering if you have plants available?

    I would be interested in the Nanking Cherry, figs, blueberry, and currants.

    Thank you,
