Q: Do I need both male and female plants to enable fruiting, and can you provide both, when in stock?

Asked by: Lisa Berger - 3/20/2016
A: No. Male and female flowers are produced on the same tree. You may have better pollination with more than one tree.

Q: How much will this tree cost when it is in stock--and when do you suppose you will have it?

Asked by: Harriet Pilch - 8/3/2016
A: We probably won't have any until sometime in 2017. Those will be around $10 and maybe 1 to 2 feet tall.

Q: When will the service berry be available?

Asked by: Terry Jacobs - 3/25/2016
A: We may not have any this year. We grew around 300 plugs last year to bump up into gallons this year, but rabbits ate them. We will still put them into gallons, but they grow slowly and probably won't be ready to sell this year.

Q: Will the trees survive being planted in the current weather conditions (high heat and humidity in early to mid June)?

Asked by: Kim Norton - 6/14/2018
A: They may need a little watering here and there, but they will be better off planted in the ground than left in a pot.

Q: We're replacing some invasives near the edge of our small woods in West Columbia, SC (8A) with natives, and have a spot we think a Serviceberry (arborea) would work well in,   It will have full late afternoon soon (completely open to the west) with trees to the other three cardinal directions.  It will experience some try times in the future summers, but we can get a few hoses to get up there to get it established. I'm just writing to see if you have any concerns about planting now, if there's anything we should ask for if we prefer it to be single trunk, anything else we should be aware of, or if there would be any problem with shipping. from y'all. Thanks!

Q: Can this be pruned to be more like a bush to control the height? I've seen "cultivars" available elsewhere but prefer to stick with a Missouri native if we can fit it into our yard. Thank you!

Asked by: KCgarden - 7/30/2021
A: We've never really tried pruning them, but they should be okay. They survive deer nibbling on their twigs; pruning would be somewhat similar to deer browse.

Q: Hi! Are your Service Berry grown to have a single stem or are they multi-stem? Thanks!

Asked by: Sean Gunsten - 8/25/2021
A: Typically, they have a single stem. Some of our gallon pots may have more than one plant in it and will eventually have a bushier appearance.
