Chicago Hardy Fig   

in stock for 2017

This is a Brown Turkey sport, with large brown-skinned figs with pink flesh.  They are self-pollinating, and aboveground wood is hardy to 10F. They have done very well in the Bloomington, IN (zip 47401) area, where I have sold them for a number of years locally. Out here at our farm, I keep them in large pots (ranging from 5-20 gal).  Our valley is too cold for them to be planted in the ground without any winter protection. In pots, I can move them into a cold frame or basement where they can overwinter (after going dormant and losing their leaves in the fall).  My 5-10 gal grown figs usually give between 12-15 figs each, with the 20 gal figs giving closer to 30 figs each.  In USDA zones 6-12, they can be plated outside without any extra protections. For USDA zones 4-5, I suggest growing them in pots or cold-frame houses that can be kept above 10F during the winter.
They love heat and water during the growing season, and will take good amounts of fertilizer.  I top dress ours each spring with about a cup of organic fertilizer (5-4-5) for each pot. When May arrives, I start with the liquid feeding schedule, weekly, that I recommend for the blueberries and raspberries (see the Plant Care page for more info). During the August and September months when it is very hot, their pots get watered every day to keep the fruit at optimal flavor and size.  For USDA zones 4-5, they make a great potted plant, and for USDA zones 6-12, they can be managed to become a small shrub or large tree (between 6' tall on up to 25-30' tall in the Gulf States).
Price for figs:
Quart size pot, 12-15" tall, with single stem: $16.00 each
These younger, shorter figs are small enough to travel well with our standard packing methods.
The quart size can be combined with blueberries, blackberry/raspberry, and other plants to meet the 2 or 4 plants per box required for shipping.  Shipping cost for these figs and our berry plants are in the tables at the bottom of this page.

These Larger figs are sold out for 2017 !
These larger figs are best shipped separately from other plants, as the size of the plant and their rigid leaves travel better with more space.  Two figs are shipped in separate boxes that are bundled together, giving a better shipping price per plant.
2 gal pot, 30"-40"
 (price includes shipping; see Table 1 to determine which zone you are in):
to zone 1: $39 for 1 fig, $66 for two figs
to zone 2: $46 for 1 fig, $76 for two figs
to zone 3:  $52 for 1 fig, $82 for two figs

 

'Salem' rosemary

Available as a quart size plant only for 2016
$14 each
 and can ship with other plants you may order

This rosemary is one I have been growing for over 7 years. A local herb grower supplied me with my first plants, and it has been my favorite ever since.  The best aspect about Salem that I like is the short internodes. This makes for a very compact rosemary, very bushy, with no legginess that many seed-grown and taller cultivars often have.  Salem makes a great potted rosemary, and is also the most cold hardy cultivar of upright rosemary of which I know (hardy to 19F).  This cold-tolerance allows it to be grown as far north as USDA zone 6b without winter protection.  Prefers well-drained soils if planted outdoors, and a decently drained potting mix for container grown plants. 


Larger pots are available for 2017!!

Grown and sold in a 1.5 gal  plastic pot, 10"-12" bushy plant
$17.00 each
Shipping for just one or two rosemary plants (if you are interested in more plants, email for shipping quote):
zone1: $9
zone2: $15
zone3: $20
All rosemary plants are certified organic and grown from
cuttings right here on our farm. They can also be combined with our blueberry and raspberry/blackberry, and fig trees for shipping purposes. See the tables below or on our Pricing/Ordering page for shipping costs of our 2 or 4 plant boxes.

Elderberry Collection
Canadensis
(syn. Sambucus nigra ssp. canadensis)

This collection includes 4 elderberry plants grown in quart size pots (the same pots our 1-year blueberries and strawberries are grown in), 1 each of 4 different cultivars.
They are Johns, Adams, Wyldewood, and Bob Gordon.

The first two are traditional cultivars that have been around for a very long time, as they have proven very productive and reliable. Wyldewood and Bob Gordon are somewhat newer. Wyldewood is from the Oklahoma, and is one of the latest ripening cultivars available. Wyldewood and  Bob Gordon (which has larger and usually sweeter berries than many other cultivars) can be cut to the ground each fall (after dormancy) in zones 5-8, and they will produce fruit the following year on the primocane stems (new growth in spring from the crown).
 Adams and Johns grow to 8' and 10', respectively; Wyldewood and Bob Gordon will be around 6' if managed exclusively for primocane stems.

This collection is good for USDA zones 4-8 (if you are in zone 3, I can switch out the Bob Gordon for another of the 3 types, as BG is the only cultivar not hardy to zone 3).

Price for Elder Collection:  $65 (includes shipping to any of the contiguous 48 states)

Wyldewood and Bob Gordon are available in a 2 year, 2.5 gal pot for $23 each when ordered with other 2 or 2.5 gal sized plants (blueberry, raspberry, or blackberry)

 

Gooseberry Plants

In Stock for 2017

We offer 4 cultivars of gooseberry grown here at our nursery:
Hinnonmaki Red
Jahn's Prairie
Black Velvet
Jeanne
These are all grown in quart size pots, and are available in a collection for $65 (includes shipping within contiguous US).
Sold individually they are $15 each, and can be combined with other plants to determine shipping rates as listed on our Pricing/Ordering page.

Aronia 'Viking' shrub

Aronia, also know as chokecherry, produces a dark black berry used in Europe for making jams and syrups. It is rather on the bitter side for US palates, but is a traditional plant in many European cultures.  Very good for blending with other fruits or using dried berries in tea blends.  It makes a great shrub for the landscape having white flower clusters in spring; dark green leaves in summer, with fall seeing red and burgundy colors; and large black fruits that wildlife will eat in winter but are not taken when ripe on the bush (no need to net these).
Sold in a 2 gal pot for $25 each, or $23 ea if you get 4 or more.
USDA hardiness zones 4-8a


Haskaps
Lonicera spp.

Haskaps are the Canadian name for what in the US have been popularized as "Honeyberries".  I have found them to be uniquely flavored, with sweetness and tartness blended well. Not nearly as tart as the traditional gooseberry, but not as sweet as a ripe blueberry, they are nonetheless another great addition to the adventurous gardeners berry garden. They don't need acidic pH, preferring soil pH above 5 and below 7.3, so they fall in the category of standard requirement that most plants prefer. They are also super cold hardy and a reliable crop the further north one goes.
This fall we are offering a 4-plant collection of 4 distinct cultivars, 3 of which were selected in Canada. They are vigorous quart size plants (all individually labeled)
Indigo Gem
Indigo Treat
Tundra
Czech
Collection is $65 and includes shipping to anywhere in the contiguous US.
