Four decades of Growing Good Food in the Northwoods of Michigan's Upper Peninsula
Down to Earth Information, Experiences, Thought

 

H

My orchard grows slowly and many of my trees come from wild seedlings, suckers, scions and plants from friends, so I don't purchase a lot. But I'd like to share here links to a few nurseries that I've had good experiences purchasing from. And links to some informative articles that have been of special interest.

TREE - SHRUB - PLANT SOURCES

Fedco Trees -- www.fedcoseeds.com/trees -- This is the source for most of the fruit trees, shrubs and berries in our orchard that I've purchased. They offer a very good selection for the northern grower; with a rotating offering of unusual or rare varieties. Their catalog has a lot of good information as well, and John Bunker (and likely others involved with Fedco) is one of the tops for hands-on experience, inspiration, sharing, and enthusiasm for growing a healthy, earth and people friendly orchard. Fedco Seeds is also a very good source for garden (and orchard) seeds. 

Honeyberry USA -- www.honeyberryusa.com -- A small, friendly family nursery in Minnesota, Honeyberry USA has been the leader in offering Univ. of Saskatchewan bred honeyberries (haskaps) and bush cherries, and other hardy northern small fruits, to U.S. growers. A great resource for those of us in cold climates.

INFORMATION

Alberta's Devonian Botanic Garden Fruit Growers Newsletter/Information -- http://dbgfruitgrowers.weebly.com/educational.html. I found a fascinating and highly informative number of articles on their Educational page that are especially valuable for the cold season grower. This is hands-on experience from some of their very experienced members. I've gotten so many ideas from here, and other articles by Bernie Nikolai and Thean Pheh, and a much better understanding of growing fruit in the north.
