In lieu of a large orchard, I buy the semi-dwarf or dwarf fruit and citrus trees and keep them in containers. This year I added to my collection with a Fuji apple tree, an almond tree and a papaya tree. The 5 gallon apple and almond tree were $30 each and the 2 gallon papaya tree was $20. I also bought most of my herbs and vegetable plants from there as well. The price for the 4" plants were $2.49 each--just a little more than you would pay at the grocery store and you don't have to drive to the store for just a little sprig.
They have very reasonable prices for organic gardening and potting soil. 1.5 cu ft for $7.99 for the potting soil. I also saw the cocoa shell mulch and if you are wondering if it smells like chocolate, yes, it does! I was tempted to get it but since my dog loves to eat almost everything, I wasn't sure if the cocoa shells would harm her so I resisted. But I will do some research to see if it would be dangerous and if not, I will get some cocoa mulch!
