So I was surprised to get a mailing from them a couple of days ago. The mailing says that Connor Hardiman, who used to work there, will be taking over. For this next season they'll have only apple trees and Bali cherry, and orders need to be in for next spring by October 30 of this year; but he's expecting, if I understand it correctly, to gradually get back to a more normal range of offerings.
