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...

*FLAGS were borrowed from Small Flags*

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?

planetrj 09-23-2009 03:08 AM

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.

Dalmatiansoap 09-23-2009 12:08 PM

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. ;)

Is there a shop in Europe who sell online a banana specific fertilizer (20-5-30 or the like) ?

I just bought potassium nitrate pure which has NPK: 13-0-46. If you add this from time to time, you'll be feeding something more close to banana fertilizer with your desired NPK.
I ordered it at this german shop: Kaliumnitrat kristallin reinst 1kg - Artikeldetailansicht - Dillnuss Online-Shop.
They ship within the EU. I wait for my delivery. Should be here soon.
The problem with potassium nitrate is, that most shops won't ship at all or only small quantities, because that stuff could be also used to build bombs. But I just ordered 1,5 kg with 100% pure cristalline potassium nitrate.

And there is Tine's Shop, also in Germany Tine´s Shop fuer alle Bananenfreunde : 3 kg Bananendünger Bananen Dünger
She has also banana fertilizer NPK 14:6:24 and is shipping to EU countries!

I wrote to "going bananas" in Florida who is the only seller I found on internet but they replied that they do not ship anything to Europe anymore due to our strict regulation about living plants and customs .... they said that most of the time , the plants spent so many day in quarantine that once they got to their final destination were badly damaged or almost rotten...

That's really a pity for us, amatour gardeners... but on the other hand it make sense on keeping Europe safe from biological treats.....

Re: Shops, nurseries... in Europe
 
Just got back from Auchan (a sort of Wal-mart) and saw a nana on a shelf.... it was pretty big and looked like a dwarf cavendish to me.. I looked at the tag that was made of plastic with the picture and the instructions and to my surprise it was labeled only "MUSA" ...... I was upset because it was not a hand made label from a farmer but a professional one you see in many greenhouses...
Ok, not evereyone knows or care about the specific cultivar , but it's like if I want to buy a "Fuji" apple tree and every tag says only "apple tree"..... there are dozens of different apples just like bananas....
It was a shame , because it was sold only for 7€ and was tall like 1 meter with great foliage.

Quality bananas in Europe can be bought for less, but are very rarely available. You're right, the most widely sold variety is Dwarf or Super Dwarf Cavendish (90% of the time). Other 8% would probably be basjoo and sikkimensis.

The only real hope for Europe is trading.

Also, it's shame about the taxonomy. It really needs to be worked at. But I'm not a biologists, so I can't really say much into this matter.

Hi!
Thank you for the link. I've placed an order a week ago for an Allagoptera arenaria with europalms but I had to cancel it because shipping was really too expensive.... it was something like 35€ for a 20cm palm worth 10€ ....

I had a better experience with canarius.... I bought the allagoptera for 6€ and a Gran Nain for 14€ and shipping was 20€

LOL, do I have to hire an african interpreter to understand their names ?

Seriously , why they don't write the common known names of those MUSAS ? Or do they are new and differents cultivars?

For the moment it has only two types of 'nanas (Gran Nain and another red one that I don't know) but I've been told that in September they'll put many different 'nanas for sale.

No, it's 55 for 3 plants:
Set-Angebot - Dwarf Orinoco, Dwarf Red und Dwarf Cavendish

It's not the cheapest shop on the web but 27€ for "difficult to find" 'nanas is not excessive while the most common costs 12.50€
