Meyer Lemon source in Canada

Hi all,

I've been looking for a Meyer Lemon in eastern Ontario (specifically around the Ottawa/ Ottawa valley areas) for the last two years, but none of the nurseries seem able to find one. Anyone have a source for the Meyer in Canada? I'm willing to ship/travel to find one at this point.

Thanks,

Re: Meyer Lemon source in Canada

Online sources for citrus are very limited in Canada. You could check with Flora Exotica. Meyer lemons are available in Vancouver sporadically throughout the year. They come from various sources but mostly from Monrovia. Use their Retailer Locator (top right corner) to find a potential source in your area. You may be able to special order from one of them if they don't have stock on hand.

P.S. Monrovia's regular address doesn't seem to be working at this time; try this link instead.

Re: Meyer Lemon source in Canada

You can order one in from Cliftons nursery in California. They will get the phytosanitary documents for you too. ($30 per order) They are expensive but you get a quality plant
and it is shipped in a bullet proof package. I suggest you get a few items at the same time to make it worth while. I purchased 4 Avocado plants from them in the spring
They have worked out well. HOWEVER, Living in Vancouver we are a stones throw from the border and i got the plants shipped to Point Roberts Washington to avoid potential delays in the customs warehouse...i imported them myself with all the nessisary paperwork. (my contact there was Catherine)

Just in...Cannon Nurseries carries several varieties of citrus including Meyer Lemon. They have several locations and one of them may be within driving distance from you.

You can get citrus trees including meyer or pondarosa lemon trees, orange trees, manderin trees at Richmond nurseries. It is a excellent well known nursury just outside of Ottawa.

Cheers

Maple Leaf Garden centre in North Vancouver has just received about 3 dozen 1 gal Meyers. They are selling for 19.99 +gst (no pst) They look pretty good.They are grown by Monrovia in California.
