I'm intrigued! I went to their website and their prices are indeed fantastic, almost border lining too good to be true, but I certainly think I'll give them a try with some plants and see how they go. Thanks for the post on this nursery, I'd never heard of them before.

Thornless blackberries are awesome. Ours is getting its first crop right now and they're bigger and juicier than the weedy field brambles. They're supposedly a lot less invasive as well. It's a vigorous plant nevertheless and I'm glad I gave it room to spread.

The reason they can sell them so cheep is that they come to you bare root. The plants are, in my opinion, superior to many of the container blue berries available in the south and they are naturally acclimated to our climate (hot and humid).

Im usually hesitant cause when you find "deals" they are usually varities not recommended, or no names. In the case of the blackberries,  these are well known recent cultivars and are recommended by Texas a@m. I grow these same ones.

I cant speak for the blueberries. They dont grow here.

^^^ yeah i guess i have seen generic blueberries in some places/stores at about this price.
....but these guys look like they know what they are doing.

i like that they have a wide variety of rabbiteye types, actually i don't think i have seen that large of a selection of rabbiteye types anywhere...also a lot of southern low chill varieties...
 
Eliminate 95% of the weeds in your lawn by mowing 3 inches or higher. Then plant tiny ads:
