Bareroots in the snow

Spring Availability 2017

Brigitte Eaton Blog Posts, Nursery Details

We’ve been getting lots of requests for more information on our Spring Availability 2017. As people recover from the holidays and start thinking about Spring, they are noticing that we still have a lot of out of stock items. So here’s an update on what’s happening here at Harvest Nursery.

  • We’re trying to get our greenhouses up, but the weather is not cooperating. They should be done by the end of January, weather permitting.
  • For those that ordered online last year, we have scaled back our shipping to only quarts and bareroots due to costs. We are also still ironing out the bugs with the system so if you see a shipping price that just seems excessive, please email us with exactly what you were ordering (plant, variety, size, quantity) and the zip code you are trying to ship to and the price quoted by the system. We will double check the price and get back to you. Also if you do get charged extra for shipping, we will refund that extra cost when we create the shipment.
  • Most of our shippable quarts for the spring season are already in stock online, although we will be adding 20-50 more varieties by the beginning of March. We have no idea of what we may find until things get properly organized.
  • Most of our bareroots will be available online and in the nursery by the beginning of February. They will be getting added as we receive them, but until the greenhouses are done there is no spare labor to speed this process.
  • There are a few orders we have out that are coming from the east coast and those will be here in February, March & April. Depending on weather, they may not be kept as bareroots long, if at all.
  • We still plan on getting our usual April Fruit Tree order, but as experienced customers know, we have no idea what we will get in this order or how many. Every year is different! So, if there is a specific variety that is not in stock after February 7th, or is in stock in pots but not bareroot, that you would like to purchase, please email us with a request.
  • We can order more from our suppliers all spring, as long as they have stock. With the infrastructure outlays that we have needed to do this year, we just do not have the capital to order bunches of every kind of available tree. That is something we would like to do in the future. Please be aware that Apricots, Nectarines, Quince, Bing Cherries and a few more are in short supply this year, so purchase early.

Here is a list of all the plants we are getting in this spring and when we are expecting them: Spring Availability 2017
