Tintori has an amazing selection of citrus. Too bad we can't get his trees here in the US.

I thought the currency in the Czech republic was euro. I was wrong. :)

Roughly 200 CK for a plant which is roughly 8 euro. Those are some extremely good prices. :o

And a very nice contact – unlike others who don't even answer.

Switzerland – Eisenhut – http://eisenhut.ch/pflanzenmenue/citrus (http://eisenhut.ch/pflanzenmenue/citrus) should be added for the Swiss since most of the above nurseries do not ship to countries outside the EU or if so, only with prohibitively high shipping rates.

Added the swiss one.

Maybe this can become a sticky?

Does anyone have any experience ordering at Rakytnik? They don't have an English website so I am not sure to what countries they ship.

You can write them an email in english. Shipping is around 40 Euro for Germany if I remember right. Good plants. A reliable nursery.

I think I drove passed your backyard. I spent a couple of days in the castle of Gargonza 2 weeks ago, near Monte San Savino and Monte Varchi. Also a quick stop at some friends in Scandicci.

Ahaha, sure you did! Given that i have some plants even in Cortona, you actually touched two of my backyards. Should have written me we could have attempted to visit the citrus in Villa Castello. But well, i guess maybe it's not the best time to go meeting some italians.

I met with 120 or something Italians in the castle for multiple days and I got back healthy :p

Hello,
I got plants from Adavo(Rakytnik), Pepinieres Quissac, Myplantbox.de,Zitronenlust, Agrumi Lenzi, Oskar Tintori.
And Baumschule Schleipfer in Augsburg ( no internet, but friendly and good plants, got there a New Zealand grapefruit which I couldn' t get elsewhere 😅).
All of the above mentioned plant nurseries sent me very good plants to reasonable prices and I was very content also with contacts and reliability
best regards Frank

I know this list is for good sellers, but I do want to mention one that I bought from and that should be avoided at all costs for citrus:
https://www.plantencentrumexotica.be/ (https://www.plantencentrumexotica.be/)   (Belgium)
   
This store is not specialised for citrus, small amount of varieties but the plants come from sicily in heavy clay soil, probably treated with hormones to make them look nicer , they died several weeks after repotting and some of them even had pests (one came with wool lice, other with the armoured scale aphids.
They don't always respond and lie about what they use for soil and how customers should care for citrus plants.

Same with this store (who is looking for a new owner): https://www.vreeken.nl/ (https://www.vreeken.nl/)  (The Netherlands)
They sold me Kaffir limes that were left in the cold and suffered clear cold damage, I was able to recover them but they're really looking in bad shape. Owner does not respond email and is angry at people when given negative review at trustpilot.

I then went to get plants from Oscar Tintori, they were very good, I did notice difference in use of soil, some plants have loose soil, others have heavier clay soil but nothing as bad as the one I bought from in the beginning.
Tintori's plants have survived me so far and they are very good.
