Quality that stems from experience

V. Kraus is a wholesale grower of nursery stock. We aim to cultivate quality trees that demonstrate structural integrity and regional hardiness. Proudly doing our part to help green the earth, we supply plants to orchardists, wholesalers, landscapers, municipalities, environmental groups and others. We would be very happy to help you put down some roots too! Let’s talk.





Our Philosophy

Ever since Vratislav Kraus founded the nursery in 1951, our philosophy has been the same:  to grow quality nursery stock which is structurally sound and of a superior shape.

Cultivating trees for wholesale markets

V. Kraus Nurseries Ltd. specializes in growing fruit trees, natives and ornamentals. Our genuine love and interest in plants is spread across 650 acres of hardy Ontario stock. Always true to name, we grow an extensive selection of varieties and rootstocks. Our relationships with various research institutes enables us to propagate and supply both disease resistant and newly released varieties.
