So I depend a lot on mail order because I like to grow unusual varieties for my stand at the local grower's market.

I have generally been pleased with the results. I recommend Stark Brothers and Grandpa's Orchard as two nurseries that ship at the right times, package their products carefully, and stand by their guarantees.
