  1. Norm…..

    Purchased 7 of the bareroot 6-12″ stock late spring. They are doing absolutely amazingly well. All 7 are leafing out and growing strong. They came in a cardboard box with the stem tied to a stiff inner cardboard insert and the bare roots packed in wet saw dust / plastic bag.

    Would recommend Cold Stream Farms to anyone looking for a nursery to purchase online from.

  2. duane hulst

    All 10 look good with small green buds. If you are looking to make jelly buy these not Chokeberries. There is a big difference.
