Spring Sales - What has already sold out?!

The tree & shrub industry in our region is still catching up from the great demand in the last few years, so we get as many plants as possible, but quantities are limited. So, we recommend ordering early, and apologies if we run out!

Bitternut Hickory - size & price reduction!

Bitternut Hickory, Carya cordiformis, is a large deciduous tree, closely related to the pecan but without edible nuts. Bitternut hickory seeds are eaten by rabbits, and both its seeds and bark are eaten by other wildlife. We originally advertised these as 18-24" for $8 each, but the nursery had to downgrade their size, so they will be 12-18" and $6 each. Bulk pricing is also adjusted. If you already purchased Bitternut Hickory, a refund has been submitted to notify you of the change in size and price.
