It will also tolerate several hours of sunshine daily–just keep an eye on the moisture. This tree attracts birds, who find security in the dense leaves, butterflies, and other small mammals.

The green fruit ripens on the branches and is ready to harvest when they are slightly soft and emit a fruity aroma. Some compare the fruit's taste to a blend of banana and pineapple--it has a smooth, custard-like texture and does not stay fresh for long after picking. Order Your Paw Paw Tree From TN Nursery
Wild Plum Tree$23.99
WIld Plum Tree Prunus Americana Wild Plum Tree: Prunus americana, also known as the American plum tree, is a native tree that flourishes in most USDA growing zones. Its footprint stretches across the United States from the Canadian border to the south. Historically, Native American indigenous people, including the people of the Cheyenne and Navajo nations, cultivated this tree for nourishment and used the branches in ceremonies. That dual purpose rings true still today. While some plum tree species are ornamental with fruit that's best left to the birds, the American plum tree pulls double duty. Indeed, it's both a breathtaking decorative tree and the bearer of delicious, edible plums. The Immense Beauty of the the Wild Plum Tree The wild plum tree is a smaller, deciduous tree that grows to a maximum height of just over twenty feet. Its branches sweep out from a single trunk, and it has a gracefully branching crown that spreads about fifteen feet wide. The angelic white flowers have five pleasingly rounded petals that usually grow in clusters. When in full bloom, the American plum tree appears as though a blanket of snow draped itself over the branches. The blossoms last several days to a week and then give way to the fruit. The fruit tastes slightly tart and is refreshing on the tongue. Fruits can be mauve, red, or purple. The fruit is compact and juicy. You can use it to make preserves, wine, jams, or pastries. Caring for Wild Plum Tree Wild plum trees are not fussy about the soil as long it provides adequate drainage. They love to have plenty of water, but they do not prefer standing water for an extended time. Amending the soil with natural compost will help you grow a hardy, resilient plum tree. Occasional pruning of any suckers that develop will train your American plum into a stately, taller shape. However, if you want a bushier appearance, you can skip the trimming. There is no right or wrong answer--it's all about the look you want to achieve. Order Your Wild Plum Tree From TN Nursery A wild plum tree is lovely to behold and produces delicious tart fruit for your enjoyment. Order yours from TN Nursery today.
Mulberry Tree Mulberry Tree: TN Nursery suggests the lovely mulberry tree for customers who need a medium-sized tree that will provide attractive, full foliage without growing overly tall. Mulberry fruit, or mulberries, range in color from a lively red to a regal purple The glossy berry has an intriguing and complex flavor--they are juicy yet sweet and sour. Some people harvest those plump, glistening berries for preserving, baking, or snacking. But many others leave them in the tree to attract and nourish local birds. In fact, some avid birdwatchers reach out to TN Nursery looking for trees to attract their feathered friends--the mulberry is an excellent choice! It provides your backyard birds with early summer nourishment and sturdy branches for nesting. The Mulberry Tree Is Truly Beautiful The mulberry tree is a deciduous tree native to North America, Europe, and Asia. It grows in a full-sun location and does not like to stand in the shadow of other trees. Instead, it wants to take center stage in your yard--and yes, it is worthy of such attention. The mulberry is in the medium height range for trees. It will grow at least thirty feet tall but stop growing at around seventy feet. It produces true green, ovate leaves with softly serrated margins. The mulberry tree grows from a single, central trunk. The branches will grow sturdy and form a relatively symmetrical shape with a bit of occasional trimming during their young growth phases. Mulberry tree flowers (called catkins) form in attractively sized clusters around the middle of spring. The blossoms are a creamy white or white with a whisper of fresh spring green. The catkins have an attractive tubular shape that makes way for the clusters of colorful berries in the early summer. People harvest the berries by hand-picking young trees or by reaching for the branches of a taller mulberry tree by using a long, sturdy pole and giving the branches a shake. The Mulberry Tree Is Even-Tempered Some fruit trees are simpler to grow than others--such is the case with the mulberry tree. Besides a sunny location in the yard, it does not ask for much from the gardener. It can tolerate short bouts of drought and poor soil quality. Pruning will help guide it into a beautiful, shapely tree as it grows. But after it fully develops, it asks nothing from you.

Black Raspberry Bush Black Raspberry Bush: There may be no better summer pleasure than harvesting the bounty of a black raspberry bush. Picking berries is one of life’s most fulfilling and memorable activities. In fact, TN Nursery customers often share poignant childhood memories of harvesting berries in the countryside with parents or grandparents when they call to order this plant. This shrub is a native species of the eastern United States. It is part of the rose family and has slender, gracefully arching branches. Its blue-green compound leaves usually turn yellow in the autumn, making a lovely fall foliage display. Its flowers are small and white but rich in nectar. The dainty flowers give way to plump, juicy, red, edible berries. These nutritious and sweet berries are excellent fresh or in baking. How to Distinguish the Black Raspberry Bush From Other Fruiting Bushes Some TN Nursery customers ask how to discern between the black raspberry bush and wild blackberries. This bush is pretty easy to distinguish from the wild blackberry. Both stems are smooth and ridged, but the blackberry stem is almost entirely white, and the thorns are smaller. Additionally, the black raspberry bush stays smaller than many other fruiting berries. It tops out at about four feet and will spread a few feet to the sides; thus, it has a more compact, shorter appearance. Like the blackberry, the black raspberry bush will grow in thickets unless you prune it during its non-bearing season. Care Needs of the Black Raspberry Bush The black raspberry bush is a resilient, hardy plant that can grow in harsh conditions. It needs full sun to produce fruit and prefers to receive about an inch of water a week. However, it will readily bounce back from short drought spells. The black raspberry bush likes moisture but does not enjoy staying wet. Find a spot with well-draining soil; fertilize it once in the spring, and let Mother Nature take it from there. Order Your Black Raspberry Bush From TN Nursery Try the black raspberry bush for a low-growing, easy-care fruiting bush that adds beautiful foliage and nutrition to your landscape plan. The fruit is worth the little care you put into it. Order your plants from TN Nursery today.
Wild Blackberry Bush Wild Blackberry Bush: TN Nursery presents the wild blackberry bush, a North American native species particularly abundant in the United States. The wild blackberry bush is an easy-to-grow, low-maintenance plant that is multi-functional. Not only does it bear sinfully sweet and juicy berries, but it also makes a lovely ornamental. The five-petaled white flowers grow in beautiful clusters sometime between late spring and early summer and then bear those famously delicious berries in the later part of the summertime. Some gardeners choose the wild blackberry bush to take advantage of its spread, not for the fruit. Each plant can grow as much as five feet across and tall. They grow in brambles or thickets and can liven up an area of the yard that may otherwise go underutilized. How to Grow the Wild Blackberry B When you plant your wild blackberry bush, remember the five-foot spread. Allow them some elbow room for future growth. Although the bare root you receive from TN Nursery might look small now, it will mature in just a few growing seasons. The wild blackberry shrub is intriguing because its root is perennial, but its foliage is biennial. That means the canes grow, bear fruit, then die back; however, fresh canes will emerge to replace the dead ones. Annual pruning, either at the end of the season or early spring before flowers develop, will keep a wild blackberry bush in good health. They prefer soil that drains well, and you should plan to fertilize them once yearly during late spring. Because the wild blackberry bush is a native species, it is drought-tolerant. It prefers about an inch of water per week, mainly as it produces blossoms and berries. However, it is resilient and can tolerate short dry spells.

Blackberry Plant Blackberry Plant: If you have a partially wooded yard with plentiful sunshine or mixed shade spots, a blackberry plant might make an excellent addition. When customers call TN Nursery for advice on easy-care fruit-bearing options, we often suggest the blackberry plant. Unlike fruit trees, which can take several years to bear fruit, the blackberry plant might give you a few berries in the first season, ramping up production season after season until year three. Once mature, it will supply you with ten to twenty pounds of berries for the next twenty to twenty-five years. The Rustic Charm of a Blackberry Plant The blackberry plant grows in brambles or thickets, thriving in sunny clearings at the edges of woods or a forest. The North American native plant thrives in full sun or partial sun--a bright spot is a requirement for producing plump and luscious berries. The first year you plant your blackberry plant, it will develop a few clusters of petite, pretty white flowers. Those flowers may produce a handful of berries during the first season. The blooms will produce small white berries that plump up as they mature. The berries appear white at first, then reddening to an almost burgundy color and eventually a rich violet to black. Ripe blackberries are juicy, sweet, and plump. As the plant matures, it grows wider and taller, topping at around six feet. They bring lazy summer days and fresh pies (or scrumptious cobblers) to mind. Can't you imagine the sweet juices drizzling down your chin as you bite into a lush berry? How to Grow a Blackberry Plant The blackberry plant requires a full-sun to partial-sun location for the berries to develop and ripen fully. Blackberry plants need approximately one inch of water weekly, especially as the blossoms and berries develop. That's because the berry contains a high water content. You will not need to assist your plant if your region receives ample weekly rainfall. However, gardeners in arid locations must help the blackberry plant by supplying water. Although it likes moisture, the blackberry plant does not like wet feet. Instead, it prefers soil that drains relatively quickly. You'll also need to fertilize it in the springtime as the blossoms develop--that food will nourish the plant and help it produce abundantly.
