    I have been planning an orchard and was looking at online nurseries. I can't find one that will ship to Texas! :grump: There is some law or something that prohibits it. So Where the heck can I buy fruit and nut trees!! :bash:

    There's a nursery in DeLeon, can't think of the name.......they have all the varieties that grow here in Texas...go to Neil Sperry's website or listen to his show on KRLD sat/sun, starts at 8am......if I can remember before , will let you know....they have tyhe best quality......close than that would be one of the Bruce Miller nurseries...he has a website as well........trees will do better if you can hold off until mid to late Sept.

    I havent had problems ordering most fruit trees, I have apples & pears from Gurneys, peaches & plums from Spring Hill etc.. but you cant order any type of citrus from out of state.

    I got three of mine this year from Walmart they are already have small fruit on them. I have a small orange tree and two tangerines. So far they are doing great. I even got them on sale since its the end of summer sale for $6.00 each. I have seen them at biglots too during the season.
