Four Winds Growers Review
Four Winds Growers rating dropped 1 point, putting them at a B- grade. Nothing too serious has changed, the deduction was for having fewer trees for sale and site usability. It's still a bit of a struggle to move around their online store.
In our opinion, Four Winds Growers nursery is the place to go online to buy a wide variety of dwarf and semi-dwarf citrus trees.
Four Winds Growers is just that, a grower. They do residential shipping of orders for Nature Hills and a few other online stores. We included them because they sell many dwarf citrus that are evergreens direct to consumers. Dwarf citrus is also a very cool container plant that can be brought indoors in colder climates.
They have been making improvements to their website the past few months, which are really needed. When we checked on May 14th, they had 60 citrus tree varieties for sale and 32 other selections including olive trees, fruit trees, avocado trees and a few fruit vines & shrubs. The 60 citrus trees in stock is down a little from last month.
We could not find any return or warranty information. We bought a dwarf Meyer Lemon from them a few years ago. We bring it indoors & put it near a window that gets sun in the winter. It is doing great!
Their prices are better than if you go to one of the online nurseries they ship orders for. For example, a 4”x 9" potted, 12 to 18 inch Meyer Lemon is $25. https://www.fourwindsgrowers.com/products/improved-meyer-lemon The same tree at Nature Hill is $58.95, more than twice as much... for the same tree! https://www.naturehills.com/lemon-meyer.
Four Winds is a great source for citrus variety information. Instructional videos, helpful links, growing tips and more. Another plus is they accept Google Pay and Pay Pal.
