Ten Oaks Nursery & Garden Ctr
Ten Oaks Nursery & Garden Center is a new business, that's the only reason I gave it 4 stars. The garden center isn't really up and running yet. Mostly they sell plants and trees, but they're planning on opening the garden center within the year (it's April 2013 as i write this). I met the owner today who seems incredibly kind and friendly and very helpful. I would definitely say this is a business to watch! The trees they have now are of real quality so I'm sure once they open the garden center, it will continue to be of high quality. Even better, the owner mentioned how he doesn't like high and over priced shops, that's not what he's about. He's all about good quality products for a fair price. So definitely stop in. He owns quite a bit of land, so this isn't a tiny shop, either.
Tips & Advices
Yes, many nurseries ship plants and trees, but inter-state shipping regulations are complex and strict, and nurseries must be in compliance regardless of whether that disallows a customer order. Also, even if items are allowed to ship, they might not survive if outside the proper USDA growing zones--in which case a nursery might try to discourage the customer from placing the order.
The ease of caring for fruit trees varies according to where you live, but lemon trees and apple trees are widely considered easy to grow. Pear trees are fast-growing but need to be planted alongside another pear variety to bear fruit. Stone fruit trees, especially cherries and plums, are popular in regions with defined seasons and cool winters.  In hot/humid regions, banana trees (producing small varieties of banana) and mango trees are known as “fast fruiters” that require little care.
Plant Hardiness Zones are the government-researched standard geographical breakdown of broad climate regions across the United States. The USDA has created a map of the United States, which includes 11 planting zones. This map helps gardeners determine what to plant when, based on accumulated weather data. Factors like soil quality and microclimates are not accounted for in the USDA Plant Hardiness Zones, and should certainly be taken into consideration as well.
Perennial plants and trees grow anew each spring, and are dormant in the winter. Annuals have a lifespan of only one growing season, and need to be replanted each year.
Evergreen is a term for plants and trees that keep some green foliage year-round. While the term “evergreen” is closely associated with pine trees, many other types of trees are also evergreen, including live oak, blue spruce, eucalypts, and most of the coniferous cousins of pine.
