This year Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds began selling live plants. I already love their seed selection. I was very excited to give the plants a try. I found several that I wanted but narrowed it down to just two types.
First I picked out the Truly Tiny Banana. It is supposed to be ideal for containers and can easily be grown in a greenhouse. My plants are small but very healthy. Best of all they had a good root system.
I also decided to get dwarf mulberry plants. We have a mulberry tree, but it is a male which means it will never produce fruit. A neighbor has a female tree and shares the fruit. I just like to have my own trees. These will grow 2'-6' if kept in containers. When planted directly in the ground, they will grow 10'-30' tall. That may not sound dwarf. However a regular mulberry tree can grow 50' tall. My plan is to keep these in containers for a few years and maybe plant in the ground eventually.
Thus far I am very pleased with my live plant purchases from Baker Creek. I will definitely be looking at other plants next spring!
