JUST ARRIVED! NEW Shipment of Fruit and Shade Trees!


By growing your own fruit tree, you can enjoy easy access to fresh produce, save money, add beauty to your yard, and develop eco-friendly gardening habits. Any of the varieties in our selection will produce a bountiful supply of delicious fruit — nutritious, healthy snacks available just outside your door! Fruit trees are a great way to add beauty to your outdoor space with lovely flowers in spring and cooling shade in the hot summer months.

And one of the best ways to keep cool in the summer is by planting shade trees in the right cherrieslocations around your home, where the trees can block the sun from streaming in your windows and heating your walls and roofs during certain times of the day.

Both Payne’s locations just received a large shipment of fruit and shade trees. Stop by and ask our gardening experts what is the best tree for you!



If you have a photo taken in one of our greenhouses or of your own garden or landscape that you would like to share, please send it to info@paynes.com! If your photo is chosen, and used in our e-newsletter or on our website, then you will receive a Gift Certificate from Payne’s for $25! Please make sure to give us your contact information in your email.
