If you want to grow fruit but don't want to spend alot of money per
bush/tree, consider buying conservation seedlings. The only 'catch' is that
you'd have to buy them in bunches like maybe $12 for a bunch of ten or $20
for a bunch of 25. There are bigger bunches.
I bought Beach Plum from the New Hampshire Division of Forests and
Lands. They also have Bayberry, Chokeberry, Highbush Cranberry, Elderberry
(black and/or red), Juneberry, Winterberry Holly, to mention a few. They
also have shade tree seedlings. If you buy from the State of New Hampshire
you can order in Winter for Spring delivery. I receive a hard copy catalog.
Go to http://www.nhnursery.com .
Go to http://www.lincolnoakes.com/ for other items such as Manchurian
Apricot, Chokecherry, +, +, +. Lincoln Oakes has bunches of seedlings from
one year old to 5 to 6'. Everything is a dollar something or less per item
per bunch. The down side is that you have to order in Fall for Spring
delivery but I have, on occasion, called them in Mid-Winter to see if they
had extra of something and they usually did.
Wisconsin has nurseries that will sell other items. Last year I spent a
morning googling Wildflower Nurseries and finally found one that would find,
and dig up, a bunch of Eastern Huckleberry.
