In past years I've tried Raspberries from local nursery's, grew OK the first year but died the second. Dorman raspberry is supposed to grow in zone 11 but from what I read it has very little taste. Has anyone grown Bababerrry Raspberries? I understand they are very flavorful.?
That is a raspberry list.
I had heard Apaches were fine here as long as they get shade... Most of the Arkansas development cultivars don't really do well here. A few do with help.
Reputable nurseries are everywhere. You just have to look for customer feedback like on Davesworld and Google. Specialists who only have a limited number of species they sell often are perfect. But sadly even a good nursery with a good rep can turn into a bad one and it may be several years before you suspect they sold you something other than claimed.
