The Bear Creek Nursery property is now a camp for troubled kids,
according to the Ag rep for the area in WA state. Have no idea as to
whether any of the trees / orchards still exist in any form
On 23.01.04 21:50 Ray Kaminski spoke thusly:<br>
> Have a large branch of Hanska plum that was grafted in 1998 and
> according to my records was obtained from Rocky Meadow Orchard and
> Nursery owned by Ed Fackler at the time. Is a nice tasting fruit but
> the problem as with any other plum you have to fight the plum
> curculio. It blossoms profusely and sets a nice crop of plums but by
> seasons end not many are left after the PC's get at them. If you are
> looking for scions there are quite a few on the large branch. Let me
> know. Zone 4-5 NE Wisc. Was -9 yesterday morning and made a high of
> zero with a 25 MPH wind, -5 this morning. About a foot of snow on the
> ground this year that will help the root systems as compared to last
> year when there was no snow and the frost killed a lot of plants and
> trees that are suppose to hardy in this zone.
> Question? What ever happened to the Bear Creek nursery property? Did
> some other nursery take over after they gave up?
