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?
