Shoot. Forgot to see all what they had, but Isons ove r in Newnan is excellent for fruit trees and such. Have beenthere sevral times myself and gone with friend s to pick up stuff and even had friends order from Texas from them large numebrs for field productions.

Ison's is a good Georgia Company, their specialty is Muscadines at which they are unsurpassed. Johnson's http://www.johnsonnursery.com/ at Elijay a couple hours north of you has a better selection of fruit trees. These are two in Georgia that are not pure resellers that I can recommend.

I also like Bottoms, although possibly they re-sell? They have nice plants though, and very good prices.
Personally, I like Johnsons the best - they are very nice people, the trees are of excellent size and very nice quality.

Bottoms are OK with advice - my friend has been dealing with them directly has found the owner "challenging" to deal with.
Johnson's is FABULOUS however, I found 99% of their growing advice is geared towards someone living in the N. GA Mountains (as are many of their fruit choices). Eg. They offer some dwarf blueberries that will not fruit here.
