[NAFEX] Opportunity is Knocking

Jim, thanks for taking the initiative on this. I also would spring for
5 trees of each cultivar. Is the reason DNA Gardens would not be able
to ship plants until 2007 because it would take a long time to process
the paperwork? -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn.

Following up on Bernie Nikolai's post about the University of
Saskatchewan cherries I called Dna Gardens - (866)687-5268.
They have two varieties that they can ship to customers in the United
States, Crimson Passion and Carmine Jewel, but there are two glitches to
deal with. First, the plants must be dormant in order to clear customs
so an order placed now would be shipped in 2007. Secondly, the
bureaucracy of exporting to the United States is so laden with paperwork
that they have set a minimum order of $500. BUT, for that $500, they
would send 125 cherry trees.
If I had room in either my garden or orchard, I would jump at the
investment. Trouble is, when I want to plant something new, I must
destroy existing plants. If one of you folks would import the cherry
trees, I'll become your customer and buy a few from you at whatever fair
price you ask.
