[NAFEX] favorite nurseries for a northeast grower (NY 6)

I purchase hundreds of trees from a lot of nurseries and have bought plants
from most endorsed by people here. The advantage of buying brambles from a
certified nursery is a greatly reduced risk of virus infected stock. I use
Indiana Plant Co. and Nourse and have never had mislabled plants from either
source in 20 years.
I love one of the nurseries mentioned here, which I will not name, but their
trees do tend to run small and sometimes crooked- at least when you purchase
in any kind of quantity. Maybe they save the best stuff for small orders
where they make more money per tree. For a good selection of heirlooms I
recommend Trees of Antiquity.
For mainstream varieties and a shortlist of heirlooms Adams County Nurserey
will often give you good sized trees and almost all are straight (hey, I'm
in the nursery business, straight matters).
For anything she carries I love ordering from Lucille at Whitman's Farms.
She sell me larger IE mulberries than Burnt Ridge and gives me a quantity
price even if I order 5. I you're ordering 1 you still may get a larger
tree (more roots and top so they do plug in quicker). She's got every kind
of ribes you're likely to be interested in.
