AKME Gardens

Welcome to Adam and Kristi's Modern Eden!

We are a family owned and operated nursery which specializes in diverse and rare varieties of temperate, sub-tropical and tropical plants and fruit trees.

Our exclusive service is custom built-to-order multi-grafted trees, where we provide customers around the country with Signature works of edible art for their landscape.

We are also known for having one of the largest selections and collections of mature species and cultivars of Eriobotrya trees, with E. japonica as our primary focus, and have developed over a dozen genetically improved varieties through careful and controlled cross-pollination of known cultivars over the years.

Our Alabama-based nursery is uniquely certified to ship to and receive from all States and Territories and most countries which allow germplasm trade with the USA within phytosanitary limitations. Due to rigorous inspections, quarantine practices, locality regulations, licensing, credentialing and preventative measures, we are also certified to ship plants in our soilless custom mixes and do not have to ship any plants as bare roots—allowing them to maintain a fully undisturbed root ball for year-round shipping with greatly reduced shock. As a result, we are also able to offer a Transshipping service as a liason when online nurseries are not licensed to ship to certain states.

Scion Wood

You will only get the best quality when ordering from us. All scion wood is derived from our fruiting wood and has been grown to maturity to validate its authenticity. There is a desired mix of fresh budwood and lignified surfaces on every scion. Each individual cutting is carefully examined, collected, tagged, isolated, washed, scrubbed, de-leafed, treated, hydrated, re-inspected and safely stored.

Please note, some scion wood is seasonal for certain trees and shrubs and not available year round.

Seeds & Fruit

We have seeds of most varieties available seasonally. Be advised that the fruit of a seedling will not be the same as its parentage, but many physical properties of the tree’s genetic markers may carry over, such as size, growing patterns, prolificity, resistances and tolerances.

Every individual seed is carefully harvested, examined, isolated, washed, scrubbed, de-pulped, treated, re-inspected and safely stored—yes, every single one, individually.

Fruit & Seeds are available seasonally and will appear on the website when ready.
