    I wanted to order some trees, ground covers, and vegtables. I am in zone 8. Which catalogs have a proven track record? :eek:

    I have had very good luck with Stark Brothers.
    Got 4 fruit tree’s last winter, the plum died. The other tree’s are beautiful.
    Sent them an email with a picture of the tree’s, including the plum “stick”.
    They sent a replacement last month. No problem.

    I think they cost a little more, but the service is worth it!!

    I too am interested in a possible order from Burgess as I want to get a lot of dwarf fruit trees for this sping. I have never ordered from Burgess but a friend of mine says that she has had good luck with them. I am not sure if her order was before they were bought out tho? I too will be watching this thread for comments from others.

    I studied their catalog last evening and ended up tossing it.
    Everytime I went to look for a ZONE # in a plant description it was absent.

    Maybe I'll have to retrieve the catalog and wait for more comments from all of you.
