Updated list of trees still available to add to our fruit tree order

I just went through my spreadsheet with the listing of trees I considered ordering a week ago and updated availability. They’re going fast!

I did not add any trees to my list with:

  • Rootstock I didn’t care for such as Citation (not drought tolerant)
  • Low chill hours (bloom to early, frost damage, I ordered one persimmons and it might not do well here)
  • Dwarfs and miniatures
  • Multi grafts
  • Apples (quite a few still available)

I did NOT order any trees NOT grown on rootstock and as we looking for cuttings for propagating from local trees with quality fruit such as figs, jujube, mulberries, olives, pomegranates, …

I also ordered a few NUT TREES, but nothing that’s not guaranteed such as pecans.

And of course you can add trees not included in my list.  I just didn’t want mini and dwarf and multi graft trees and I was picky about the rootstock.

If you’d like to add a tree to our order, please check at https://baylaurelnursery.com/ whether it’s still available and then email the EXACT TREE NAME and PRICE.

Shipping is about $6 per tree.

Be sure to read the DESCRIPTION of the trees and note whether they need pollinators!

  1. I have pomegranate tree and fruitless mulberry if you want to take cuttings… Maybe we could trade. I need to grow more fruits and veg for my brother. He has cancer and needs home grow healthy food.
