1. THE SEARCH FOR LINERS

Below is a list of liner producers from Tennessee. I have been having a blitz of new inquiries by people interested in starting a nursery. Liners are in very short supply and it makes it difficult to get started or keep going without a steady, reliable source of plants. I am beginning to collect a source list for liners. Below is a source list of budded liners, seedlings, and rooted liners that Mark Halcomb, Extension Nursery Specialist for Middle Tennessee, sent me. If you sell liners, please let me know so that I can add your name to my liner list.

Liners may be budded, rooted, raised from seed or produced by tissue culture.

A = Accelerated growth, in containers.
B = Budded Liners.
C = Rooted Liners.
D = dogwood.
F = fruit trees.
L = Liner production is major part of business.
M = maple.
P = ornamental pear.
R = redbud.
S = Seedlings.
tc = Tissue Culture.

This list of Middle Tennessee liner producers may never be complete. More and more nurseries are beginning to propagate liners for their own use, and then sell their surplus. It's difficult to list all the nurseries that might have high QUALITY surplus liners for sale. The nurseries that produce liners as a major part of their business are indicated with an 'L'. No discrimination is intended and no endorsement by the compiler or the University of Tennessee Agricultural Extension Service is implied.
