I am looking for a tree that has red leaves all year round.
Do you carry Japanese Maples or Red Plum trees? If you do, do you plant them for a fee?
Thank you
Renate Grim

I am trying to find a product known as Perma till or Vole Bloc put out by the Stalite C. of NC. It is a soil amendment in 40 lb. bags. I would like to use this as part of my bonsai soil mix. Couldn't find in my area. Will be travelling past you in near future. Do you carry? Thanks.
