This place seems pretty dead. But it is almost winter. I have bought from nourse and was happy. But I read about nurserys In other places in the country that have 5,7 and even ten year old plants that you could purchase. There must be a place like that somewhere in new england. Filix.

Filix -

I think that it is less that this forum is dead (though it is a bit slow now) than there aren't a huge number of folks from Maine who post on this forum. Also, I don't know of anywhere in New England with a great selection of blueberries for sale. Most nurseries I have been to may have 1 to 3 varieties, but no where I know has much of a selection. So when I see some for a good price, I will buy a few, but the folks I know that have a lot of bushes and many varieties have gotten them over the internet.

Funny I don't think of Nourse as an online vendor since they're local - just too far for me to drive. But I've bought all my fruit plants from them over the past few years and have always felt they have the best varieties, quality and customer service.

A couple years ago, I planted some raspberry canes ordered from them and they all died. I'm sure it was my fault, but when I contacted them to ask what I might have done wrong, they reminded me their plants were guaranteed and put in an order for a free replacement the next spring. The new plants are thriving (probably because I was more careful planting them and tending them through the first year).

If you do buy blueberries from them, order early, because I think they sell out every year.

Thankyou both. I do like Nourse. But I was hopeing to find larger plants. The blueberries and blackberries I did buy from them are doing fine. Maybe I should try posting this on the fruit forum. filix.
