Planting fruit trees : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

Has anyone ordered fruit trees from Henry Fields? We are planning to enlarge our orchard this year. I did get a catalog from Starkes so apparently they are back in business but unfortunately, they do not have the trees I want. I have 4 fruit trees from them and they are doing well. I've never ordered fruit trees from Henry Fields. Their prices look good and they have a good selection of the trees I'm looking for but I'm wondering about the quality.

I have ordered from Henry Fields before, but other trees not fruit trees. The trees I got were healthy, and they are one of my first choices for seeds. I usually order my fruit trees from Starks.

Haven't tried Henry Fields, but just this week ordered a few trees from Gurneys. Was glad to see them back up and running.

In the past, we've gotten most of our fruit trees from local suppliers, but they are much more expensive here in Colorado. We did order fruited mulberries from Gurneys while in Texas. They arrived as not much more than little twigs, but did surprisingly well.

YES! We have ordered from Henry Fields. We got three great fruit trees and a problem tree. They were not able to be reached about the problem tree, constantly rang busy, and I sent a letter. Have not heard from them. They are owned by the company that is going bankrupt. I also received a Gurney's catalog, but I know they are owned by the same company. Aparently, they are in business this year to get rid of stock, and the catalogs were already being printed up. You may get a good order... or you may not and be unable to get help.
