We are transitioning to a spreadsheet version of our catalog in order to provide regular updates about availability of plant inventory. You can use the pull down menus at the top to sort and search, but it may mess up the formatting.  Simply refresh the page. I'm not deleting the old list yet, so please excuse the extra clutter in the meantime. Please let us know what you think about the new spreadsheet format. Thanks so much!

Chestnut, American x Chinese 2'' plugs $3, Quart pots $6, Gallon* pots $12

 

Seedling Chestnut, American x Chinese (Castanea dentata X mollissima): Seedlings from blight resistant crosses (natural Non-GMO), parents were 15/16 American, and exhibited American chestnut growth form (tall timber type).  Only a small percentage of these seedlings will be totally blight resistant, so plant a lot of them and be part of the movement to bring back America's majestic chestnut tree!  

Seedlings from 15/16th American blight resistant crosses. Not all will be resistant..  Full to Part Sun.  Non-grafted tree pricing: 2'' plugs $3, quart pots $6, gallon* pots $12

Nut Trees

Chestnut, Chinese  2'' plugs $3, Quart pots $6, Gallon* pots $12

 

(Improved variety) seedling Chestnut, Chinese (Castanea mollisima): Seedlings from improved varieties.  These beautiful spreading trees produce loads of large nuts at a younger age than most nut trees.  Leaves glossy green.  Beware the husks which are incredibly spiny (like a sea urchin), use gloves to get out any nuts that don’t drop free.  But slice a cross in the hull, roast over a fire, peel and dip in melted butter—you’ll have a treat that will warm you up quick on cool fall/winter evenings!  Unique for their starchiness amongst nuts—a tree-based carbohydrate source.  Immune to chestnut blight.  Prefers acidic soils—never put lime around a chestnut tree!  Plant two for pollination.  Full to part sun; Zone 4-8.  Height 30-50’  

Spreading growth, height 30-50', plant two for pollination.  Full to Part Sun.  Non-grafted tree pricing: 2'' plugs $3, quart pots $6, gallon* pots $12

Nut Trees

English Walnut  2'' plugs $3, Quart pots $6, Gallon* pots $12

 

 

Seedling English Walnut (Juglans regia): Russian seed source that should have better productivity over the more common Polish seed source.  These are seedlings that have good cold hardiness.  While not quite as large as grafted varieties, they come pretty close and are easy to grow.  More upright growth than heartnut with beautiful smooth white bark!  Can sometimes have pest issues on the nuts but often have plenty of unharmed nuts to supply your winter pantry.  Full to part sun; Zone 4-8.  Height 30-40’  

Upright shape, Height 40-60' Russian seed source.  Full to Part Sun.  Non-grafted tree pricing: 2'' plugs $3, quart pots $6, gallon* pots $12

Nut Trees

Ginkgo  Grafted trees are $16 in Gallon* pots.  We occasionally have quarts available for $10 or 2-gallon* pots for $26.

 

Commonly known as a lovely landscape tree, but also a tasty and nutritious nut.  The catch is that the outer covering of the seed (the "fruit") smells terrible and is a skin irritant.  But when cleaned and roasted the seeds are easy to crack and taste gre

 

Eastern Star Female Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba): Improved nut producing variety.  Slow growing up to 30' tall.  Zones 5-8.  

Full size on Seedling Rootstock, Up to 30' tall, needs male to pollinate.  Full Sun. 

 

Jade Butterfly male Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba): Beautiful dwarf specimen tree.  Leaves are larger and more scalloped, giving them a butterfly look.  Tight, dense growing habit.  Slow growing to 8-10' high by 6-10' wide.  Zones 3-9  

8-10' tall x 6-10' wide, non-fruiting.  Full Sun. 

 

Pyramidal Form male Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba): Popular specimen tree.  We are not selling this tree as 'Gold Spire' because it is a trademarked name, but if you want to see what it looks like you can google that name ;)  This tree has a unique tall, narrow pyramidal form, with a tight, dense growth habit. 10-12’ tall x 3-4 1/2' wide in 10 years.  Zones 4-9.  

12' tall x 4' wide, non-fruiting.  Full Sun. 

 

Salem Lady Female Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba): Improved nut producing variety.  Slow growing up to 30' tall.  Zones 5-8.

Nut Trees

Hazelnut  2'' plugs $3, Quart pots $6, Gallon* pots $12

 

Native Eastern seedlings Hazelnut (Corylus americana): A lovely landscape accent plant or hedge that also bears prolific crops of nuts. Since these are wild seedlings, the nuts are small compared to the improved filberts and the shells thicker. Nuts about the size of a pea when shelled out but very tasty and sweet!  Plants are a little slow to get going but really take off after their second year in the ground. Shrubby growth gets 6-8’ tall with equal spread.  Fall foliage is stunning with colors all over the spectrum.  Showy male catkins in the winter and spring. Immune to Eastern Filbert Blight. Plant two for pollination. Can take shade to full sun. Space 4-8’ apart.  

edible ornamental, 6-8' tall with equal spread, plant two for pollination.  Full sun to shade.  Non-grafted tree pricing: 2'' plugs $3, quart pots $6, gallon* pots $12

 

Peace River Improved Native seedlings Hazelnut (Corylus americana or cornuta): A lovely landscape accent plant or hedge that also bears prolific crops of nuts.  Since these are wild seedlings, the nuts are small compared to the improved filberts and the shells thicker.  Nuts about the size of a pea when shelled out but very tasty and sweet!  Plants are a little slow to get going but really take off after their second year in the ground.  Shrubby growth gets 6-8’ tall with equal spread.  Fall foliage is stunning with colors all over the spectrum.  Showy male catkins in the winter and spring.  Immune to Eastern Filbert Blight.  Plant two for pollination.  Can take shade to full sun.  Space 4-8’ apart.  

edible ornamental, 6-8' tall with equal spread, plant two for pollination.  Full Sun to Shade.  Non-grafted tree pricing: 2'' plugs $3, quart pots $6, gallon* pots $12

 

seedlings of 'Jefferson' Hazelnut (Corylus avellana): This is the European hazel that you recognize from store-bought hazelnuts.  Shrubby growth gets 8-12’ tall with 6-8' spread.  Fall foliage is stunning with colors all over the spectrum.  Showy male catkins in the winter and spring.  Parent is resistant Eastern Filbert Blight so seedlings should have good resistance but not guaranteed.  Plant two, ideally three or more for pollination.  Can take half-day to full sun.   Space 4-8’ apart.

Nut Trees

Heartnut  2'' plugs $3, Quart pots $6, Gallon* pots $12

 

Seedling Heartnut (Juglans ailantifolia): After trying my first heartnuts straight from the tree at a local Amish farm, I was impressed!  I lightly brushed off the husk, tapped the shell with my pocketknife on a fencepost and “ding!” the shell came apart in halves and the whole heart-shaped nut fell out intact.  Add to this the flavor that was like a sweeter cross between English/black walnuts and you get one incredible nut!  Anyone who has dealt with the difficulty of black walnut processing will love this change of pace.  Heartnuts are smaller trees, spreading more to make an attractive yard tree with white bark like English walnuts.  I’ve seen a few plants at various spots and they are all growing incredibly fast, putting on 4’ a year.  Somewhat self-fertile.  Seedlings are variable in nut size and may not be a true heart-shape.  Full to part sun; Zone 5-8.  Height 30’  

Attractive spreading growth, height 30', vigorous fast grower, self fertile.  Full to Part Sun.  Non-grafted tree pricing: 2'' plugs $3, quart pots $6, gallon* pots $12

Nut Trees

Nut Pine  2'' plugs $3, Quart pots $6, Gallon* pots $12

 

 

Korean Pine Nut Pine (Pinus koraiensis): Tall, slower-growing ornamental pine usually tops out at 40' but can theoretically reach 150'.  Good producer of large (think store-bought) easy-to crack pine nuts, it can start bearing at 7-8 years.  A five-needle pine, it is in the white pine group and has a very similar form and appearance to Eastern White Pine.  Some drought resistance.  Prefers well-drained soils but is also known as a pine you can grow in clay soils.  Great if you want an evergreen windbreak that makes you food!  We recommend interplanting with Eastern White Pine in a windbreak to get faster growth; then culling out the EWPs once the Korean Pines get growing well.  Zones 4-9  

Good Pine nut producer reaches 150' tall.  Full Sun to part shade.  Non-grafted tree pricing: 2'' plugs $3, quart pots $6, gallon* pots $12

 

Lacebark Pine Nut Pine (Pinus bungeana): Attractive multi-trunk landscaping tree that produces edible and easy-to-crack pine nuts, though the nuts are much smaller than Korean Pine.  Its silvery grey bark becomes exfoliating as it matures (may take up to 10 yrs).  Patches of bark peel away revealing white, green and purple skin.  It is slow growing, eventually reaching 30 to 50 feet tall and 20 to 35 feet wide. Zones 4-8  

Multi-trunk landscaping tree with exfoliating bark, edible nuts.  Full Sun to part shade.  Non-grafted tree pricing: 2'' plugs $3, quart pots $6, gallon* pots $12

Pecan  2'' plugs $3, Quart pots $6, Gallon* pots $12

 

 

seedling of 'Kanza' Improved Northern Pecan (Carya illinoisensis): Improved hardy pecan seedlings.  Pecans can be successfully grown in the North.  Smaller nuts than the Georgia papershell pecans, but still an amazing amount of nutmeat in very easy to crack shells.  Need 2 for pollination.  Height 30-50’ by 25-35’ wide.  Should have no hardiness problems into zone 5.  North of that, plant at your own risk!  

plant two for pollination, height 30-50’ by 25-35’ wide.  Full Sun to Part Shade.  Non-grafted tree pricing: 2'' plugs $3, quart pots $6, gallon* pots $12


We do not ship plants. To reserve plants please either call us, or email us , and schedule an appointment to pick them up. We can also DELIVER  for a fee to our general region.  


*size designations are nominal. We use “trade gallons” (which are slightly less than a gallon) as well as recycled pots that may vary in exact size.  Every plant may not be available in every size listed.  Gallons are common for grafted trees and quarts are most common for everything else.  There are usually a very limited number of two gallon plants available – first come first serve.
