“ General notes for All Fruit Trees ”
Zoning & rootstock note: It is important to note that many growers differ in the zoning of various fruit trees. Zones listed by us are based on our experience with trees in our orchard as well as the declared zoning by others. Our nursery is in a micro climate ZONE 3 giving us a good opportunity to evaluate hardiness.
Rootstock also plays a role in hardiness and we prefer staying with the recommendations of Northern growers and the University of Minnesota, who is responsible for the development of so many wonderful fruit varieties. If our zoning differs from other suppliers it’s because we believe it will work in the stated area. And we guarantee the success of plants in the zones for which we have stated they will grow.
