    I see no mention of mail order on the website; do they?

    I like Boughen Nursery Valley river Manitoba. excellent bare root stock for mail order. over 100 years in business.
    I've ordered from them for many years.
    Fruit Trees and More near Sidney on Vancouver island is an excellent nursery. Bob Duncan will not sell you something that is not or your zone. not sure if they would mail - I've been there several times. last time bought an Arguta kiwi hardy for Calgary.

    Holly, does Boughen Nursery have a Web site to see what they offer, and to place orders? A Google search doesn't seem to bring anything up.

    Fruit Trees and More does have a one-page site (Fruit Trees and More) but by the looks of it doesn't do mail-order.

    On the Fruit and Nut Trees resources page, I have moved the one nursery we had there to a separate item at the bottom of the page and have added Le Coteau and Fruit Trees and More. I found the address and contact information for Boughen Nurseries (13-26 20W NE, Valley River MB R0L,
    +1 204-638-7618), but the website is down and there is nothing to confirm that this company still exists. Perhaps it's closed for the winter, but still, the website should be up to say as much.

    Thanks for reviving this thread, @Holly M (much as we don't usually encourage reviving old threads, but in this case, it made sense). I see there are several suggestions here that are not on the resources page. I will check them out and add them.

    I have added Denman, Green Barn, Grimo and Rhora's to the Fruit and Nut Trees | UBC Botanical Garden Forums page.

    @Rob Beckers , would you willing to check out the others in your first posting in this thread to confirm that they still exist, and mention the ones I should add in the discussion thread at
    Fruit and Nut Tree Resources
    Actually, if you'd be willing to list there the rest of the websites that have been mentioned in this thread that still exist, with the blurb, that would be a big help. You could suggest enhancements to the blurbs I did too.

    That Alberta one seems like it might not still exist. A page comes up with "page not found" and the links don't work.

    Has anyone tried Whiffletree from the Elmira area? They said they are zone 4 and seem to have good reviews.

    Granny, yes, I've purchased quite a few trees from Whiffletree. They're good people to deal with! Very nice selection too. Just be careful, like many other garden places they "overrate" the zone of their plants/trees. We're officially in zone 5a, however, anything listed zone 5 or even zone 4/5 that I've tried will eventually freeze. Don't buy anything at least one zone hardier (ie. for me in zone 5, I only buy trees zone 4 and colder).

    I have added all of the ones in this posting that still exist to the Fruit and Nut Tree Nurseries resource page.
    Note that I have moved the original thread to this resource discussion thread.

    Here is an up-and-coming food-bearing tree nursery on Vancouver Island:

    www.treeeaternursery.com

    Home (250) 335-0970
    Cell (250) 897 8540

    We have a wide assortment of food bearing trees on offer; from more traditional types like Apple, Plums, Grapes, Cherries, Hazelnuts, and Elderberries, to more unique and rare varieties such as Shipova (a disease resistant cross between European Pear and Mountain Ash), Hardy Kiwi (Small smooth skin Kiwi that grows in clusters like Grape), Mulberries, Persimmons, Hardy Citrus, Goumi and Aki-Goumi, Fig, Medlar, Walnuts, and so much more.
