I received a mail order catalog from this company. There are a few trees that I am in interested in.

Does anyone have any input re this Nursery?

Does anyone have input re a better Nursery where I can find the following...

Spirea, Purple Leaf Plum, Elberta Peach, Moonglow Pear.
Any info re the above trees would also be appreciated.

I am in the Huntsville area

I haven't ordered in a long time, but the plants were fine...small, but very inexpensive and a good selection of wild native flowers. I don't find any web site so they must be catalog only. I'd love to drive up there some day, but never any time...sigh.

RE: Vernon Barnes and Son Nursery Q

Same here. A garden club I was in used to order from VB&S, pot up the plants and sell them to raise funds. They were small but we sold a ton of them for $3.50 each and no one ever complained.

RE: Vernon Barnes and Son Nursery Q

Where is the nursery? I've never heard of it.

RE: Vernon Barnes and Son Nursery Q

It is in McMinnville TN
