What's in your order from Howard Nursery?

Just finished calling in my order to Howard Nursery. Got everything I wanted. Even all the limited quantity items. Here's my list.

White Pine
White Spruce
Norway Spruce
Douglas Fir
Winterberry- wife loves the berried branches for holiday arrangements
Buttonbush-I have 3 year round creeks on my property so the following three should thrive in the wet margins. Trying to diversify instead of just red brush and multi flora rose. Also plan on increasing some of those thickets with evergreens on edges.
Highbush Cranberry
Elderberry
Dwarf Chinkapin Oak
Sawtooth Oak
Hazelnut
Chinese Chestnut- interesting to come compare to last years hybrids
Assorted Standard Pear-makes my project easier. Was planning on starting pear from seeds this year and in a year or two graft on some of my known varieties. Now I have some to plant, so to keep for grafting.

250 assorted pear. These things grow like crazy at my place.


Took me about 50 calls to get thru but if you don't order some of the seedlings right away, they sell out.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy JM

Rrroae, 250 pears!!! Spur 100 pear trees. Dang every deer within 5 miles will be hanging around at your properties when they start to produce. Feel bad for your neighbors. I have a few pears producing and it's already their first and last stops of the night. I thought 25 more would be lights out. 100+ wow. You guys are gonna have some tasty venison.

White pine and elderberry. We do not have the soil here to grow many of the good trees and shrubs they offer.
