Bioregional Nurseries

Local nurseries that sell potted trees as well as native plants are best picked up at the source. Home orchardists will often find a wider array of varieties available than what's found in the commercial pipeline. Many of these nurseries ship bare root stock as well, others sell bench grafted stock which saves considerable money, or often you can even get scionwood and rootstocks to do your own grafting. 

Growers with a listing as a Bioregional Nursery produce trees in healthy ways. Efforts are made to build soil with cover cropping. Inoculating root systems with mycorrhizal fungi should be standard nursery practice. Training first branches makes for better shaped trees. Pacing growth with slow-release fertilizers results in climatically-adjusted stock.

Various grafting techniques are used to carry forward bioregional favorites.

Here at the Holistic Orchard Network, we are thinking big! As support for these efforts flows in, we are building a list for locally-sourced trees that will fill up in the following regions:
