  1. Hi, I am desperately looking for Good tasting, producing, Paw Paw trees and Persimmons. I live in Columbia, Maryland. Thanks for helping me. Mary


    1. Persimmons – Most persimmons in the trade are seed grown which means there could be variation from plant to plant. The Oikos Tree Farm website lists 2 cultivars, but I am not familiar with them.

      Pawpaws – the Peterson Pawpaws are probably the best. At this point you would need to order them from a mail order nursery. Here is a where to buy link: http://www.petersonpawpaws.com/Order.php


  2. Are you or someone still available for talks to Garden Clubs? As an alternative we could come to,your facility.


  3. A fair number of years back I purchased a pack of bare root plants thru theYC Conservation District. Can’t remember the name but thought it was some kind of Verbena. The plants are now 8+ feet tall and have red berries on them… Which the birds are not interested in. YCDC no longer offers this plant for sale according to their recent brochure. Was wondering if you might know what it is, sorry I do not have better descriptive info
