I don't know why, but go to the above page and then click on the picture that says Harlayne apricot (and Henry Fields below the picture) and it takes you to Henry Fields website with everything about 75% off! Who know how long it will last . For example just ordered a carmen jewel for $7.50/ea. No coupons or anything special needed.

Good luck!

Thanks for the tip. Ordered the Carmen Jewel cherry and other items at a cheap price. Used the link supplied by Jethro75.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I gave Henry Fields a try due to the sale and had low expectations on what I would receive. My Pixie Crunch "Lil Big" apple tree arrived. I expected a thin, 1 to 2 foot tree but was quite suprised when I opened the box and found a 4 foot, nice size tree, simliar to what I have received from Starks and other reputable nurseries.

It is really late here to be getting a bare root tree but the tree seemed alive and healthy with lots of buds ready to pop. Not sure if this was a mistake but they also sent one of those round tree supports that was not ordered which usually costs around 10 bucks. The black satin blackberry plant I got was on the smallish side but alive and had buds but the mammoth raspberry I ordered was large and full of roots so overall I felt like I got a good deal and recommend the sale to others.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

Thanks for the deal!!! Very good prices with that discount. Got $100+ worth of stuff :)))

Their website, in particular the account management system seems archaic though. Placed an order and I do not have a customer # so I cannot check the status of the order....lol


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I've ordered from Gurneys many years ago..never had any issues. Very nice prices...wow


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

Years ago I ordered from both Gurney's and Henry Fields...and the first thing I noticed was that both of their catalogs (pre-internet days) looked to have the same layout, the same style of somewhat embellished marketing, etc...and even I think the same customer service number.

Obviously they're owned by the same company. Since everyone seems to already know this, I don't know why they don't just operate under one banner.

For seeds, I've always had good results - after all, a seed is a seed, as long as it's stored properly, labeled correctly, etc.

Live plants have been VERY mixed - I've gotten EXCELLENT stock from them, and horrible, in the same order.

It might somewhat depend on the supplier of that particular product.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

The original post didn't get much activity, thought I was the only one who tried it out. Looks like everyone was waiting to get their items before posting!

Ordered an Olympic Korean Pear Deluxe (amongst other things, the others are still awaiting shipment):

Includes bareroot tree with soil height marked, calcium and starter food packets (both which specify not to administer until 3 months after planting), a tree trunk protector, and HF catalog

Not shown: added more surrounding soil to the white mark and mulched


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I received everything (great quality) within 5 days of ordering except the carmine jewel will be another ~30 days. Had to call customer service to confirm the order and remember how to understand India english : ) over the phone .


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I've been waiting until they at least ship. I thought the first post was a put on. Seems too good to be true, even with their inflated prices.

Too bad most of the fruit trees I'm interested in can't be shipped to WA or OR.

I did order some asparagus and other things as well as a pressure canner.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I ordered 2 trees the cheaper ones are out of stock the ones I ordered are 30 dollars including shipping. $30 is not enough to buy half of apricot trees from Pam fast growing trees any way. I am very disappointed in apricot trees but I never quit. I have 3 trees of 8 feet and 4 years old which cost a lot of money bought from Pam in NC. I just want to taste one apricot fruit I produced it did not happen yet.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I just ordered a bunch of things from Henry Fields also. Great Prices that's for sure. I only got one each of the small fruits though to see how they grow . I have thrown money away on great deals before and now am a little cautious. But I look forward to getting great stuff like many of you have gotten. I am trying to convert my yard into more edible things. It just takes time because it is a lot of work.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I received my fruit trees today, a Pixie Crunch and a Goldrush (both lil big... trying them out, we'll get full-size later if they wont work out). Arrived just as Kaizer's photos above and we already have them planted. Good size! Hoping they do well... waiting to see how much fruit we get since they're small.

I also ordered 'gus, strawberries and a few other things that won't get here for about another week... ordered some bulbs that will ship in the fall :)


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

Crap!!! I did it to! I even tried a couple of items that are not for my zone, but what the heck there really isnt very much with low chill hours anyway. (I always say that but am still devistated when I fail) lol.

RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

Me, too! 2 apricots, 2 nectarines, a cherry and spray. Here's hoping it actually ships soon. Listen to me. I still have 25 rose bushes to plant before I go back to fruit. How do you guys do this? Thanks so much for the post. What fun!


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I just received my order today and they actually shipped double my order. The trees all look really good and I will plant them this weekend.

Yes Jerseymec,they can be planted in containers. Brady

haha bradybb...enter button must be sticking...I have received one tree so far, and my mason bee box. I keep watching the other items in my order slip further and further back...they had one dwarf orange tree scheduled to ship in SEPTEMBER, well I contacted them and it looks like they are moving that date up.

Apple Tree I got ($9) looked ok, also very dormant like a stick. But it's planted and hopefully it will be ok.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

Brady I did not post 6 times the same post. Their Internet Page and my virus program crashed together and was a big mess. My virus program kept saying the page you are looking for could not be found or malicious and we blocked.
End result six postings what a grief


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

Ok let's see, one of my grape vines was shipped with a broken main branch, called and they sent me a replacement. To day the paw paw trees came in packed great. Open second box again little branch snapped when they placed it in the box from Garden's alive. I'm not going to call on that one. The blueberry plant is a little stick with a few roots. I hope everything makes it. At 75% off is a normal price for the plant they sent.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I got my Goldcot apricot about two weeks ago looking fully dormant, and it's budding up wonderfully!

I got the Carmine Jewel cherry yesterday. It sounded so small, but the branches are sturdy and nice. It's about 9 inches tall. I don't know how it'll do here in the South, but we'll find out :) It's starting out nice and healthy, so I'm very pleased.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

treehugger,
I know there was most likely no intention on your part to make that happen.Computers can be very useful and a pain sometimes,like other things we depend on.

 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I got my carmine jewels in. Pretty nice. There's 8-10" of wood,and 2 stems on most of them too! Last year they were freshly vegged out, no wood and 3-4" long. My CJ's from last year are doing great and are almost 40" tall. They liKe a little ammonium nitrate.

Got my Henry Fields Carmine Jewel also. It was small but very healthy and nicely packed in a bio pack so it goes into the ground without disturbing the roots. Also great price. I wish plants I ordered from other suppliers looked that healthy.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I got my Carmine Jewel also! It is nicer than the one from Honeyberries USA. Small but super healthy! And to make you all jealous I also got in Cupid and Juliet. Probably one of the first in the USA. From a trade, not a nursery.
Isn't it a shame these cultivars were released 9 years ago and still unavailable in the USA? Gardens Alive who owns Henry Fields has the exclusive distribution rights in the USA. Maybe one day they will decide to offer them, then again maybe not.

RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

First of all, I would like to thank Gardeneck, and Jetthro for sharing this sale information. No doubt, it is a great deal. I, like many others here, bought a lot of stuff, fruit trees, berry plants, seed, misc. garden supplies etc.
However, I placed my order in April. Initially, the delivery dates are in May for Spring shipment, Oct for fall shipment. But Henry Field keeps pushing put the deliver date . Now, a grape vine I ordered will be delivered by end of June!!! unbelievable.
I am wondering if I am the only one did not receive ordered plants yet? or there are a lot others here just keep quiet and wait patiently?

Also, for those who received well packed fruit trees, with tree guard, etc. You guys are lucky. I did not received any of these... No tree guard, no well packed shipments. One partial shipment contains three plants, one raspberry, one plum, one Asian pear... It looked like they only put some wet new paper on the top when they pack, that only covers part of plum roots. The Asian pear roots is underneath and is very very dry. It was a good size pear plant but now it is dead stick.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I did get some planting supplies about two weeks ago and should get part of my plant order today and the rest of it early June.
Yes,they do push the delivery dates forward quite a bit.I'm still waiting for the rest of a Gurney's order that was made about two and a half months ago.
I hope your plants grow and do well olympia_gardener. Brady

Yes, my stuff has been trickling in too. I got the pressure cooker though, so everything else is bonus as far as I'm concerned.

The two pear trees arrived a week or two ago, they look good and the buds are pushing now.

Its strange, pumpkin seeds won't arrive until some time in June. What's the holdup with seeds?

At least for you folk in WA state the weather is still conducive to transplanting.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

I actually received twice as many trees as I ordered. I planted them and within a week all of them were budding out and growing great. They all came with tree guards as well as fertilizer as well.


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

Is it possible, Insteng, that my trees were shipped to your address?....LOL.

Bradbb, how is your blue berries doing this year. Mine are not doing so good... Three bb died during the winter, and the rest seems having ph issue... leaves are on the red side... not as many flowers as I had last year. But my Asia pear and peach is doing great... set many fruits.. I have to thin most of them out...aching.

Murky, I just received my radish seeds too... temperature here was already in mid 80's in past week. Chicago virtually has no spring, jump from winter directly to summer...The radish season has passed, It looks like I have to wait for next year.
The worst thing is that I am leaving on July 1 for long vocation so when the plant arrive at end of June, I can plant it in to the ground, and God has to look after it during my absent. If Henry Field continues pushing out the delivery date, the package has to sit at the door step under the sun and rain for a month...


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

olympia_gardener,
There should be a good crop this year.Are yours in the ground?
Red leaves could be from some other cause or deficiency.
Mine are about 80% in containers.I like it that way,then I can can control their environment better and move them when I want.The ones in the ground are doing fairly well also.
Well,it's good to have an over abundance and thin, than have no fruit at all. Brady


 o
RE: 75% off Henry Fields (Gurneys) RIght Now !

The trees from H. Fields look better than everywhere I ordered from except Raintree but RT was 4 times the price! I am thrilled! Received Yumm Yumm and Mericrest Nectarines, Sugar Pearls and Harlayne Apricots, Montmorency Sour Cherry and Carmine Jewel Cherry. Everything that arrived was budded and leafed out fast except the Harlayne Apricot which they replaced. Still waiting on Carmine Jewel. Many thanks to Jethro_75 and garedneck for posting this incredible deal!!!

I have to wonder how they made money on their sale to me. They sent my $32 order in 4 shipments as the plants became available. Today I got a shipment that contained one $1.75 plant. Very happy with their prices and service. Hope they have the same sale next year.
