Our fruit tree day in November is the time to come to learn what you need to know about growing fruit trees, and also to make your orders for the next year. See our fruit tree growing instructions for information on how to do end of season pruning, and dormant season spraying.
Click here to see the fruit trees on the 2015 order list. If there is a variety not on our list that you would like to special order, it must be ordered by mid November. (Special orders are restricted to almond, apple, apricot, Aprium, cherry, cherry-plum, fig, jujube, nectarine, NectaPlum, peach, peach x plum, Asian pear, pear, persimmon, plum-cot, plum, Pluot, pomegranate, prune, and quince varieties.)
You can go to the Dave Wilson Nursery Fruit Tree Catalog to see the different variety descriptions and information. To help you narrow down your search, try the Low-Chill Varieties page, where you can filter out fruit tree varieties by zone and chill hours. (According to the Dave Wilson site, the Pomona data station recorded 252 chill hours last winter, and 427 the winter before.)
Herbs & Veggies
Although we have the largest variety of herbs and veggies in the springtime, Weidners always tries to have a nice selection of herbs and seasonal vegetables available. Our herb section includes kitchen favorites such as rosemary, parsley and oregano, as well as some less common varieties like coconut thyme and chocolate mint. Growing your own herbs can be a great way to always have fresh ingredients, as well as beautify your backyard or patio.
Our vegetable selection changes with the seasons, and not all veggies are available at all times. In general though, the next section shows which vegetable types will be available during different times of the year.
Spring: Tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, lettuce, kale, spinach, melons, cucumbers, squash, asparagus, onions, swiss chard, potatoes and more
Summer: Tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, swiss chard, pumpkins
Fall/Winter: Some tomatoes and peppers, lettuce, kale, broccoli, cauliflower
