Spring of 2002, I ordered six hazel trees and four Carpathian walnut trees from Grinnell Nursery in Michigan.He has a catalog on on the NNGA site and apparently supplies trees
for MSU projects on the northern peninsula.Six hazels and one walnut arrived in excellent condition but the other three walnuts didn't appear viable but I planted them,notified him
and watered them weekly the same as the others which thrived.The three walnuts in question showed never even sprouted from the roots.I've contacted him several times and he has always replied except for a period when he said his computer was down.This spring he said he was out of walnuts but would replace with hazels which I didn't receive.
I would imagine the nursery business is rather hectic at times especially for a small order.Has any one had experience with this nursery?
