Good morning Gabriola. So my bare root fruit tree supplier is going out of business. The farm was sold and the new owners are not doing fruit trees. I don’t know if I will be able to find another supplier. So I purchased quite a bit more than usual. There is a good selection of apples, pears, cherries and a few plums. ( not Italian). These trees are larger than usual with much more root. This is the best ( cheapest) time to buy and plant these trees, as we will have to start potting them up in a couple weeks. That adds about$15 to the price. Current pricing is 29.99 and 34.99. Plant a tree, grow some food. I will post varieties in a bit, otherwise drop by and check them out. If you buy 10 or more I can take 10% off. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi, there! What varieties of apple trees do you currently have for purchase, out of that big, bulk, bare root stock pile?

Can fruit trees this size be planted in a large pot for a year or two?

Yes

Thank you for posting. We are very happy with the two apple trees we selected from you! 🙂

Now is the time to get your fruit trees and ornamental trees sprayed with dormant oil. This helps to take care of any overwintering pest and disease. Can be applied up until blossom. One application is good, two is better. Available at Wild Rose Garden Centre, your gardening happy place. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Gabriola, what a beautiful sunny day! I just picked up my order of bare root fruit trees and I’m heading back on the ferry. It will take me the rest of the day to get them sorted and into the computer. Come and get them starting tomorrow (Friday). Best time to buy them is now as the price goes up once we have to put them in pots. Nice select to choose from. ... See MoreSee Less
