We had a tragic death in my extended family, a child. I went in looking for a tree for the child's grandmother to plant. I was hot, August in Missouri, crying, somewhat disoriented. Tracy helped me pick out a tree. Suzette lifted and rearranged heavy pots to help me find the perfect fit and color. Marc and Sean wrapped my purchases then carefully and thoughtfully loaded it into a vehicle that was a little too small for the purchase. It was almost closing time but none of them acted put out or bothered by my indecision or lack of focus. They even went and got me a bottle of cold water while they loaded my car. The very best of service. I thank each of you for your thoughtfulness!

They have such a variety of plants that you feel like a kid in a candy store. I have never had bad customer service there. I have always been able to ask anyone on the floor for help and they all are very knowledgeable about the flowers and plants they sell there, or know who to ask.

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.
