I've only bought one tree from St. Lawrence, and it was average.
I've bought a bunch of currants, blueberries, and shrubby this-and-
that, and been quite happy with them. They've been large plants (by
far the largest bare-root shrubs I've received), well packaged, with
good root systems, and they've arrived ideally early in the planting
season, fully dormant. If a couple of places have what I want, St.
Lawrence is my first choice.
By the way, when reading the Garden Watchdog listings, it's good to
pay attention to what people have ordered. For instance, I've seen
companies with a lot of feedback where most of the folks who ordered
bulbs were happy, but the ones who ordered plants weren't, or where
the folks who ordered seeds were happier than the ones who ordered
