Bald Mountain Nursery, January 2024 Newsletter and Fruit Tree Pruning Class Dates.

Bare root season will begin after January 5th. We are receiving the trees on the 5th and will have them ready to go within a day or two. I will send out an email when they are in and ready to go. Blueberries, cane berries, figs, and pomegranates in pots are in.

Complete price list for bare root fruit trees is available on our website, at the nursery, or via email by request.

Bare root season goes through the end of February. We have a large selection of fruit trees during bare root season, but don’t wait till the end of the season to shop. Once a variety is sold out, it is gone until next year’s bare root season. At the end of February, the trees that are left, which should be few, are potted up and sold later in the year and the price is higher after we pot them.

We also still have our full regular inventory for whatever you might need.

Bare root roses are now available as well. 

We have a large selection of roses to choose from. We sell them bare root until the end of February and after that they are sold only in pots. 

Again, our complete list is available on our website here, or can be picked up at the nursery. If you would like one sent via email, send me a request.

Dormant Spraying of Fruit Trees

If you haven’t done so, you should do the second dormant spraying on your fruit trees. You’ll need a dry 24 to 48 hour period to get this done. Use copper mixed with horticultural oil and spray the entire tree including the trunk. If you have not done any spraying yet, get one done now and wait a couple of weeks and do the second, and then the third and final spraying should be done in February just before bud break. I spray all trees in the orchard, not only to prevent leaf curl, but to help kill overwintering insects and to help prevent diseases such as fireblight. It helps to reduce aphid problems in the spring as well.

Onion Plants Will be Arriving the second week of January.

Seed Potatoes will be in February.


Fruit Tree Pruning Class Dates
January 20th & 21st @ 10am
January 27th @ 10 am
February 3rd @ 10 am

All classes are free of charge. No reservation is necessary. 

I will demonstrate pruning of fruit trees and also will demonstrate the pruning of roses for the late winter early spring season. The demonstration usually lasts about an hour or so and I will answer any questions you may have. If we have rain on any of the dates, we will reschedule since we have them here at the nursery orchard, and prune the trees in the orchard.

We hope to see you soon for your bare root fruit trees or other planting needs and at one or more of the fruit tree pruning classes.
