I'm particularly excited about today's giveaway for Urban Homesteading Giveaway Week because I looooove Raintree Nursery. I get their catalogs a couple of times a year and, if you like seed catalog porn, well then, you'll love the Raintree catalog and will want to take it into the bathroom for some private time.
Raintree sells, primarily, fruiting bushes, vines, shrubs and trees, alongside nut trees and bushes with some other oddities thrown in for good measure like jujube, goumi, paw paw, aronia and a whole host of other fruits and nuts that you'll be tempted to buy even if you have no idea what to do with them.
For my part, I have purchased in the past blueberry bushes, strawberry plants and a 4x1 dwarf cherry tree (wherein they threw in an additional graft just because). The plants and trees always arrive in perfect condition.
If you live in Western Washington, you can visit them personally (they are in Morton, WA) or you can do all your shopping online. And, for all of us crazy Raintree stalkers out there, we can now follow their nursery magic via their Facebook page.
The nice folks at Raintree have been kind enough to humor me and sponsor today's giveaway for a $50 gift certificate to one randomly chosen winner. That means you could buy:
1 self-pollinating dwarf plum tree, 25 Tristar strawberry plants and 10 asparagus crowns
3 grape vines/plants and 1 fig tree
whatever suits your fancy like one self-pollinating dwarf 4x1 cherry tree like I have.
No matter what you choose, they are all perfect for establishing or adding to your homestead.
