Mr Ko seeds ....... Sorry I'm thick

averil(8b)May 2, 2014

Hi folks. I'm thinking about buying a few more seeds. You know what it's like. I do see Mr Ko seeds from Taiwan are popular in here so I thought I would buy from there. However, I find them on ebay and all are priced in dollars. I'm assuming I can pay by paypal from uk. Is that correct? . I've just never bought on ebay from outside the uk before
Kind regards

Yes, you pay by paypal also when you buy from other countries than the UK. Paypal convert from $ to ã , so no worries there, you'll se exactly what you paid on the paypal receipt.

I agree with Rick. I think it would better to buy directly from him, so you can avoid all the bidding on eBay.

Averil,
Contact him through Facebook, if you are on it. It shows as Adenium Ko
(Ko Chi Lung) I believe. I sent a note off after seeing your post and he sent me his list, but I was unable to copy&paste into body of this post.
Came up good for me through this method.
Have fun. Had to not look too much, was getting that urge. No I cannot.

May I ask, Rick, if Mr. Ko has more arabicum seeds on his Facebook page? On Ebay he only has one kind. I've never been able to successfully grow this from the seeds I got from somewhere else.

No, I can't get through to this site. It connects then freezes on me. I'm thinking of ordering from Plumeria2u. I have ordered pachy seeds from them before but sadly they didn't germinate, though that would have been down to me and not the seeds. Has anyone bought seeds from them before and were they successful?
Thanks again

Averil,
Sorry I was not able to get the website address for Ko correct for you.
You could email me and I could ask him to send it to you.

Rinoa, is fantastic for seeds and plants. www.rinoa.ch@gmail.com
I have dealt with her many times and impeccable is all I can say about her professionalism.

I would not get seed from PlumeriaU2. Been reports of too many taken advantage of and they buy there seed from other reputable growers and resell.

If you want to send me an email. I can forward it to both Ko and Rinoa to send you there current seed info., then you would have it.
Hope this helps,
Rick

Rick, bless, you are so helpful. I ordered some from ebay last night. I got seeds from there before, but my usual seller, old-n-bald doesn't seem to be listing. Ha ha I've also ordered some pachy seeds to try and germinate one of those little blighters. Thanks loads to you Rick and everyone for your input
Kind regards
