      What would the pricing be?

      2 for me too. To follow along with the "If you give a mouse a cookie" line of thought, if Indigocrisp was also available, I'd buy two of those too. ;p

            Liners are young plants 60 to a tray, they would be about a foot tall.

              Sarah,

              Not sure as I have not heard the cost but probably $5 each??? Plus the shipping.

                I did ask about Indigos and perhaps in May I could get a tray, they are still tough BUT I can't sell them even at cost, is against the rules.

                  I bought my Indigo from Just Fruits and Exotics. They are borderline here. I'm not sure I will keep growing either Sweetcrisp or Indiocrisp here? The garage is too warm for them and they come out of dormancy early. It happened this year. The shed may be too cold. I will chance it though next winter. Right now they are outside, but it looks like all fruit buds are dead. The plants are still alive though.

                        Sweetcrisp is rated 200 to 300 chill hours. http://www.ffsp.net/varieties/blueberry/sweetcrisp/

                        They do well enough in my extremely low chill location. I get flowers and fruits and leaves, but probably not as many as a slightly cooler area.

                        Can they be sent to California? Without a phytosanitation permit (or whatever is needed), there is always a risk of confiscation, but probably low. There are plant sniffing dogs that check some of the packages that come in through the airports.

                          I'd be interested in about 5. The known quality of these makes it an easy buy at that price. I'll be pulling up bb bushes I haven't even tasted yet to make room.

                            Let me put it this way. I KNOW a guy out in California that would be very pleased to receive 4 or 5 of those Sweetcrisp blueberry bushes.

                              I have absolutely no problem sending them to CA as long as you understand any risk of confiscation is on the buyer It has never happened but it is a possibility no matter how remote.

                                  I'd be interested in 2-4, Wills. Do you know if they do well up north? And I'll need a second southern highbush variety for pollination?

                                    I'm sorry but I don't think they are for you.....really just zone 8 and warmer?

                                    Even if I bring them inside with my figs for the winter?

                                  Over the years, although I've feared it, I've never had a problem receiving plants from out of state. If there had been a problem, I knew it was on my dime.

                                  However.... a couple years ago, sending fig cuttings to someone else in California, the dogs found them at the airport. The package was inspected, but delivered. IIRC both the recipient and sender (me) got letters from the inspectors. I was supposed to have noted on the box what plant material was inside. Or something.

                                      Ok....the liners would be $5 each and are 6"-8" tall. They grow fast though.

                                            Should we let those fig people know on the other side of this forum? Hmmm, that would mean less for me though....
