Anyone know if any nurseries are selling any in Georgia?

Check out the Georgia Citrus Association and 1-Dog Ventures. They should have several varieties available :)

Might be worth the drive to head to South Carolina and check out Stan McKenzie farms.

Iím pretty sure you have to get your plants from GA due to greening quarantine.

They would probably be the best bet, however they don't ship as far as I know so get ready to drive a few hours. They did impose some rules that started in January 2020 here: http://www.agr.georgia.gov/Data/Sites/1/media/ag_news/legal_notices/files/2019/Citrus-Rules-(September-2019)(CLEAN).pdf

I know that 4 winds and Mckenzie had a certificate whenever I used to order. Not sure if it was Aphis or not, and apparently that is now a requirement as of January 1, 2020. I did order most of the varieties I wanted last year just in case something like this was coming. Looks like you can't send material or propagate your own stuff even now, just like California.

You might try Loch Laurel Nursery (in Valdosta). He mostly focuses on camellias but he has some hardy citrus as well, you could go ask him.
