Shops, nurseries... in Europe
 
Time to give this brand new European section a new, dynamic look.
I posted this once somewhere, but it would me much more appropriate in this section, so here it goes...

Since I didn't have much of a succes with other ways, I would be interested in knowing all the possible shops, nurseries and places all over the Europe, from East to West, from North to South.

That's when it occured to me that such a list would be very handy and useful resource for all the Europeans...
If every person adds 1 company at least, we surely will get them all. Let's make a list of all the shops and nurseries offering tropical plants (must not be only banana, but preferred).

Also, your experience with shops, comments on shipments, anything will be noted and recorded to provide most accurate information for all the members to see. Hope anyone of you, who can, will contribute.
You can also always pm me and I will add the new item into this list...

I will more than gladly put you there once.
Maybe it's almost time to hang your service to the god's electric company on a coat hanger (and god said: "Let there be light") and start doing what you love the most now. :D
Btw this is my post nr. 555. :D

But you know, that once hobby becomes work, it's not the same hobby as it used to be before?
You could also open large citrus station. :D That would be good in your region...

I was wondering if all the shops mentioned here ship all over europe / eu? If not, could that be marked aswell? I personally use mypalmshop.com (located in the netherlands) for my palm stuff and they do sell bananas too. Not many tho', at the moment they are offering only Ensete maurelli and Musa basjoo. The 'nanas I have are bought through ebay. Maybe we should also include those ebay stores that always sell them?

Re: Shops, nurseries... in Europe
 
Just wanted to tell the people in Europe how lucky you lot are!! LOL
The nice thing that Europeans are so lucky about is that they have much more united shipping policies and can often get things shipped from UK all the way to the Nederlands, and even better when you live in Eastern Europe, you can get things shipped easier, because they haven't quite pulled hard on the regulation strings yet. I guess the US has it's reasons, and we could have had a much worse breakout of Sigatoka had it been less enforced.

Inside EU sending is no problem. I also received a pup from Ante (not in Eu) within 5 days after sending it, so it's not a problem.

Shops see it as a problem only if there are issues with certiphicates. As long as Europe is concerned and you pay the shipping, there's no problem there. Or at least I haven't experienced any.

Re: Shops, nurseries... in Europe
 
Biggest shipping problem all over world is LACK OF GOOD WILL wich I prooved many times. In the bigging there was theme that shipping naners between USA and Europe isnt even possible and I recived lot of plants(pups), few large corms and several other plants from US.
I succsesifully shipped few plants to SEA. Unfortunally, didnt recive any but many of U knows reason why :(.
Trading and shipping naners among Europe members goes smoothly too. I hope that I will proove that with foto documents by the end of this week again :).
Im waiting for new shippment, wahoo!!!
It isnt hard. U just need to have willing parts on both ends, right? ;)

I sincerely hope so too. They were way too small to be kept like this during weekend. :bananas_b I can't really believe how cheap the connection between us 2 was. :D They sent it as a letter even without weighing, scanning... trying it. Wow. They didn't even need manifest or anythinbg like that.
I was even tempted to send you one 0,5L Kofola, so that you try, but than you would be addicted and with no Kofola around, you could easily run out of steam in late autumn (bringing several 2L bottles next year in summer... :D ).

I'm, newly, expecting a pup from southernmorst, African-like Calabria sometime next week (during a deep cold spell, damn, but it's probably not goping to be very much better), so I hope that everything goes alright. :ha:

Ante, just one thing, if it is too beaten up, please, use some photo editor to make it look better. ;)

I have never had a problem shipping US to UK in either direction, normally takes about 7-10 days.
