Bay Laurel Nursery is an online store with a great selection of fruit and berry root stock
This is the time of year to plant bare root trees and this site in California carries most every flowering and fruiting tree you could desire. Bay Laurel Nursery ships bare root trees all over the country and their list of varieties is impressive. They carry every thing from apples to quince in a long alphabetical list that includes berries, figs and quince. They include the chilling requirements of the plants, that is, the hours of 45 degrees or more, between November and Februrary. This is not a problem in New England and other cold winter locations, but for those in the south and west, they have "low chill" varieties.
The online store has a nice section on backyard orchard culture, which is the prolonged harvest of tree-ripe fruit from a small space. This means planting close together several or many fruit varieties which ripen at different times, and keeping the trees small by summer pruning. They have instructions both on planting and on the pruning which is very useful for those of us who are not commercial growers. They also ship roses, nut trees, ornamentals and some gardening supplies.
