I ordered two batches of plants, from Rhora's and one from another good nursery in Ontario. I ordered paw paws, nut pines, yellow horn, russian almond, butternut and buartnut. I found the response for a family run business pretty good. I had paw paws coming from the other nursery - both orders arrived on the same day. The root structure was impeccable, even after being in the hands of canada post for 6 days. I would deal with them again - the only issue I have had, minor, is to order 2 bags of innoculant, and have not heard back - but being from a family run nursery in spring understand they are very busy and such a small order is almost insignificant. Their plants are showing great growth I would recommend them.

I ordered some bare root pines from Rhora's Nut Farm and Nursery. I was delighted with the trees that were sent to me. I was equally impressed at Mr. Rhora's knowledge and the love and care that he has for his trees and his willingness to answer all my questions whether by phone or email.
I was very impressed when I dealt with this nursery. After reviewing their website and a few others (notable grimonuts.com, and nuttrees.net), Rhora's Nut Farm & Nursery provided all the information that I needed to make an informed decision on who to go with. Initially I wanted to try to grow different types of edible nut trees, but wasn't sure what I wanted at the same time. After numerous correspondence with Charles Rhora, he provided all the answers that I requested from him. Now all I have to do is sit back and wait for my order to come through. I'm really anxious to see how much of a yield I can get from his trees. Living in a more northern climate, it seems more challenging to grow various trees. You need to be very selective in what you obtain.
I will post an update once his shipment has arrived.
