Special Christmas offer

Recommended Posts

Phoenikakias

Free Guihaia argyrata seeds. Europe only. I keep gathering fruits, as they mature gradually. Only for those people, who have enormous patience to await seed germination and subsequent seedling growth lol

Hi Konstantinos,

i would like to try these. Patience is not a problem as I have Butia seeds sleeping for two years now.

Thanks for this great offer

Soil is slightly to moderately alkaline.  Orientation south-west.  Soil is naturally mixed with stones, but it has been somehow amended by long time cultivation. I apply every year a fertilizer richer in potassium and poorer in Phosphorus. That's all.

Hello,

Any chance you might still have a few Guihaia seeds that I could persuade you into sending over the pond?

Clay

Hello,

Any chance you might still have a few Guihaia seeds that I could persuade you into sending over the pond? I have a 5 year old Guihaia that needs a companion or two. Has done well here in Texas.

 

Regards,

Clay

I have so far received 13 requests of European people.  Please do not send any more requests for now until those older ones are satisfied. If and when I pile up a new sufficient stock of seeds, this topic will revive.

I have gathered up over the last two months enough seeds and since all interested people can get a fair amount of seeds, I will start mail envelopes. Fruits and seeds are very small and covering up a real minute volume.

I have prepared 13 envelopes, which will be brought to post office tomorrow.  So far 3 guys from the Netherlands and France respectively, two guys from UK (wondering whether this name will persist after Brexit), Croatia and Germany respectively and one guy from Spain are among the recipients. Any requests from outside Europe will not be satisfied for the time being.

I can only say, what I have written privately to another recipient of the seeds: Frankly no reliable advice available.  I have only managed to germinate one seed out of three from a previous harvest by fluctuating temperature in my propagator 4 times daily with max temp not exceeding 32 C and in a substrate 50%  coir and 50% perlite, if I remember correctly.  It is possible that seeds behave like those of Brahea and Butia and need hibernation before they germinate during following summer outdoors.

My memory has failed me miserably.  Thank God that this forum has an excellent data bank. In this old topic, you will find my true practice:

You are at the doorstep of my land and seeds took almost two weeks longer to arrive than in France, UK and Germany?!!? So much for the common market inside the EU, it's only a shame. There is no excuse or reason for this discrepancy other than preserving old privilege.
