OUCH!

$65.00 for Big Jim. I can stomach that.

$38.45 for shipping.

I think I reached my pain level.

I hope I can get some budwood or grafting stock.

I know, though I will say it was one of the single best trees/plants I have ever purchased.

My one experience with Ty Ty was not good. Their plants are tiny, extremely expensive, and have poor survival. I also got chased back to my truck by their loose pit bull. Only buy from them as a last resort and be aware that what you buy could well not survive.
Buy from anyone else first. There is a I think an Aarons something or other that seems to be an offshoot from them. Since they are so similar I would also beware of them too.

I am amazed that the TyTy/Aaron's people can remain in business. The internet is littered with tales of their poor service.

I ordered from them years ago and was less than happy. In the end the twigs they sent me did survive, but it was a lot longer before they were the blueberry bushes I had ordered.

Anyway, back to loquats. Let me know if there are other places to list.

Just Fruits and Willis do not offer exactly the same things and so it could worth my while to pass by both of them.

I think it is an excellent idea. If we are there in person it should be difficult to be taken advantage of. Willis doesn't have a great rep BUT I think it should be worth the trip especially since it is close to JF&E. I definately need some items from there. Here is the scoop from DG. "Willis Orchard Company has 289 reviews (143 negative, 128 positive and 18 neutral) at the Garden Watchdog"

The scoop on 'Willis Orchard Company'

Paradise Palm is an affiliate owned by Jason Willis. Their DG report is here.

The scoop on 'Paradise Palm Co.'

We could do a cumulative buy of $200.00 and that would help too!

Should be a good trip. Let's do it.

The trouble with the reviews is that their former employer at Ty Ty could be sending in the negative reviews. Darkman I am sure we will work something out. You have to have an appointment also to buy from them on site which is made over the phone.

Yeah the Ty Ty guys could just copy and paste some of their reviews! LOL

I'm off every other Saturday so I ready whenever you can make it.

This is what arrived from Willis: well packed, excellent root development, but I cannot find a grafting scar - think these are cuttings.

Keith that sounds good. When I (actually SBL came over and gave me a crash course in grafting) grafted the scion wood you sent me I took the trimmings off the seedlings and I am trying to root them. I should have plenty if they all take.

I haven't heard of any "superior" rootstock for Loquats so the rooted cuttings are probably better than a grafted one IMHO.

Thanks again.


PS Still loooking for BIG JIM scions if anyone has any.

Does anyone have any updates on whether you got what you purchased from Willis Orchard? Were they seed grown, grafted, or cuttings?
