Grimo Nut Nursery is located in the Niagara Peninsula in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake. We are fortunate to be in a growing zone 6b or 7, depending on which zone map you refer to since we are so close to Lake Ontario.

In our catalog we list hardiness zones for the trees to assist with proper selection for your planting area. Hardiness zones should be used as guidelines only as your location may be affected more or less by microclimates, elevation, and winds. Other factors such as frost pockets in hilly areas, rainfall, drainage, soil type, and pH will also influence the growth and success of the trees.

To find your location’s proper climate zone please see:
