I am specifically looking to buy apricot trees. I bought some online but that website said they were out of stock. Im looking to travel anywhere in Bexar county. I want to buy them from professional nursery that has grafted the apricot trees.

I second that Fannick's it the place to shop for Fruit Trees. I have always found their Staff Friendly and Knowledgeable.
It's a Fantastic Family Owned Business.
Even Bob Webster who has his Gardening show on Sat. and Sun.mornings on KTSA and own's his own Nursery (Shades of Green on Sunset) speaks highly of them.....to me that says a lot.

Fanick's! The owner is knowledgeable and always ready to help. There's also a young man who works there, Ruben, who has helped me and our community garden many times with our questions. He seems to be equally knowledgeable. They really seem to love what they do; I think they're open just about 365 days a year!

That being said, I don't know how apricots will do in SA. I think they need more cold hours in the winter than we have. Some people grow them in Fredericksburg but not many and they do get more cold hours up there.

what makes me mad is places like HEB who sell trees. For instances this spring HEB was selling Loblolly Pine trees for like 10 bucks. Well these pines do grow in Texas but will fail in San Antonios hard clay/rock soils. The people at Fanicks wont sell you something that will fail. Just ask them questions and tell them what part of town you live on because not all the soil is the same.
