Who sells these Berry Items?

Hello - I live in Katy, TX near the West Houston Area around Zone 8b. I've heard good things about these types of berries and how well they do in warmer areas within the US, however, I'm having a difficult time finding a distributor or nursery locally or online (with good reviews and shipment to TX). I want to know if you know of anyone who sales any of the variety of berries listed below?


Raspberries:
Bababerry
Dorman Red

Blackberries:
Brison

Hybrid berry:
Youngberry

Regards,
Wayne

Canning Pie Fillings

I've noticed that current recipes for canning pie fillings call for using clear gel that, as you know, is a modified cornstarch. Is it safe to use regular cornstarch? I've always found that it works well! I understand that clear gel doesn't break down during the canning process, but is the reason for using it aesthetics only, or is there another reason?

How can I remove aspens?

I'm considering buying a house in Fort Collins (Timberline and Drake Road area). It has no sprinkler system and many shrubs and other plants are in very poor health. So while I have the landscaping torn up to address those issues, I would like to remove a cluster of aspens. They are not large - have perhaps been in the ground 8 years, and of course some small new trees have come up nearby and even a few suckers perhaps as much as 20 feet away.
* What steps can I take for best success in removing these trees and the roots/suckers in the vicinity?
* Is there a low toxicity product I should use in the stump area?
* How deep do the roots tend to go? Could I have deep rototilling done to address much of what has spread across the yard?

Thanks for enlightening me on this topic.

Dying Blue Spruce Trees

My neighbor and I have quite a few blue spruce trees that appear to be dying. The dead branches are usually on the sunnier sides of the trees and start at the bottom of the trees and progress up the trees. There are no farm fields in the vicinity (no overspray) and neither of us use a lawn company to spray and maintain our lawns.
