Hi, just a quick update....

As you know Thailand market is open again to EU buyers , thanks to reasons that is better not to investigate.... Alson the time needed to treat the bulbs before getting the Phytosanitary certificate had been "magically reduced to one week or less...

On the EU stores front, there is Amulree that is putting back in stock a lot of 'nanas previously unavailable, and for the moment the "winter" discount code is still active (50% off everything) so you can buy a lot of plants at 5£ .....

Bananenshop.de and Bananen-freaks.de seem frozen..... no update since last October. If you find anything still in stock , they will not ship untill minimum temps will raise above 0° (and in Germany I don't know when it will happens)

Exoticgarten still didn't reply to any mail , not on their shop's mailbox not to their e-bay's one , even if they are currently running a dozen of auctions.... I really don't understand them.

Canarius bear in catalog only Dwarf Orinoco and Gran Nain, it's worth to consider if you are interested also in their huge collection of Mangos and Papayas.

ATGTREE , ( Home Page) the thai seller that has a lot of variegated Ta-nee and Namwah does not reply to mails.

Europalms.be says that they are reclutant to ship plants outside Holland because they fear they could die.... .... so only seeds from them.

Lucky palmen has actually 3 ebay's auctions running but hopefully in a near future they'll have ploenty more, so keep an eye on them 'cause I made some very good bargain with them. (In case you buy anything from them , ask them to TAG the plants , otherwise if you buy two o more nanas you'll never know what is what).

That's all for the moment.

Thanks Rick for the update:

I just have to add, that I tried to contact Exoticgarden again a few days ago and they also didn't answer this time. In my first mail I didn't ask for international shipment, so that could be the reason why they answered. But it seems to me that they're affraid of international customers or are on holiday now. But anyway it's not nice to not answer. A simple: Sorry we don't ship (internationally) would be okay.
In other countries this behavior is quite common (Thailand maybe, Greece for sure), but I didn't except this for a shop in Austria...

That's pretty self-explanatory.

hi All,

I am a newbie on this forum but as this thread is a 'sticky', I'd like to tell you -- exoticgarten has already made me 3 shipments this year (to cyprus, not the easiest to ship to!!) with diff nana's & palm seedlings..

They are very nice folks - once replaced 2 pups that didn't make it through the journey! just have a little patience, they seem super busy at times. It helps to speak/write German.
On the last 2 shipments, they always gave me presents (extra nana pup or palm seedlings)

They also have an ebay shop (ebay.at) with most actual offerings...

for those in need, give it a try !

Very good experience too !

Google translation solved the difficult communication problem

Hey

Just wanted to mention I'd found a place in Sweden that sells Musa Velutina seeds. Not a banana place as such but they do just this one variety.

Rosa banan (Musa velutina) - Vägg i Vägg)

Works for me, anyway!
