potted tree source online

I am looking to see if anyone has a suggestion for a good source for container grown fruit trees online. In particular I'm looking for peaches and plums. Did notice Tierra Madre had some apples and pears listed that looked interesting. Any suggestions for stone fruit?

These guys do potted only.

Here is a link that might be useful: Rolling River Nursery

I'll second Rolling River- they are great. I've ordered from them 4 times, though I haven't gotten any stone fruit from them yet. But, in my most recent order, I do have a Harko nectarine (reputed to be brown rot resistant) arriving on Tuesday.

Another place to consider is Just Fruit and Exotics. They sell southern peaches and plums, many of which could work for you in zone 8. I got a persimion and a jujube from them last fall and was pleased.

Don't forget Edible Landscaping, potted only. Not so good for peaches and plums but they have some things. I got a potted plant from Tierra Madre this spring and it was very good quality.

Ditto Rolling River, I was able to find a Bloomsweet Grapefruit there, they're the only Calif growers of this particular (Texas/Gulf Coast) variety. As well as Tierra Madre. Almost all of my rare heirloom pears came from Tierra Madre, and they all were in excellent shape.
