Marc and all,
This is a nice piece of work by John.

Tony, thanks for posting the link. It's a really wonderful work--a labor of love. If you're interested in nuts, pawapaws and persimmons, you should read this.
I will print it out and use it as a guide. Thanks.
Up the same alley, from an earlier time, Carl Weschke's book on growing nuts in the north.

Thanks for additional link. I got a lot of reading to do.
I would like to get John Gordon's book, but the link to his page
isn't available any longer. Is anybody kind to post a new link to the pdf
or send by e-mail a copy?
It's not the book,but I found a link to his nursery page. Brady

Nice selection of useful trees, have to do some browsing....
I already ordered some bare root persimmon, pawpaw and pecans somewhere else a few months ago, put them in the ground while still dormant early March.
There is no sign of growth yet, my other trees are all in leaves by now, does anybody know if its normal for bareroot tree seedling to be later than established trees ?
(I hit one by accident with the weedeater and the cut was green, so looks like the life is still in there)
JHG passed away within the last couple of years; not sure that the family is still operating the nursery; I'm thinking not - but the website is still up, so...maybe.
Bareroot pecans & persimmons take a while to get going. Minimal experience (and bad,at that) with bareroot pawpaw seedlings, so can't offer much in that arena.
Here's another link for it:
