Tripod Ladders & Teufel's Nursery?
In the article I wrote for the Pome News
, In Praise of the Tripod Orchard Ladder," http://www.homeorchardsociety.org/article/36/
I suggested contacting "Teufel's Nursery" to locate one. Our Webmaster just forwarded me an e-mail asking for additional information on Teufel's Nursery
. I called both their (old) 'Retail' phone number, and their (Feb. 2005) "Wholesale Only" number. Both numbers brought me: "This number has been disconnected and is no longer in service
..." message. And, there appears to be no Internet link to the nursery either.
Is Teufel's Nursery
out of business? They've been my favorite place to browse for years. They've carried an excellent line of professional grafting knives, pruning equipment, plant labels and assorted goodies.... I know they've bounced between Retail & Wholesale, but as I've generally walked into their location (off the Sunset Freeway), they'd never turn me away ~
Anyway ... I suspect some might wonder where they can find a 'retail' outlet for the Tallman Ladders
mentioned in my article. I searched them online too, and found the following link: http://www.tallmanladders.com/tripod.html
I then E-mailed Tallman
, requesting a 'local' outlet where a person may purchase one of their tripod orchard ladders. I'll post their response when I receive it, but until then, does anyone have the lowdown on Teufel's? I'd hate to 'show up' at an empty building
