Will seeds survive shipping in winter?

Hi,

I am thinking of buying some adenium obesum seeds from Asia, as they are much cheaper than buying at home here in the UK. However. I am concerned they may not survive the long journey, as temperatures could turn to freezing in the near future. I hear that some tropical seeds can survive short bursts of freezing temperatures, but cannot find out what ones. Should I buy from Asia or pay more than double here at home?

Any help will be appreciated!

Hi
I have had seed sent to me here (Canada) in the winter and they where fine. I keep my extra seeds in the fridge (inside ziploc and sealed container) and planted up in spring and they germinate very well.
I would order from Asia.

Seeds from Ko, Adeniumcenter and Rinoa, all with excellent germination and seed quality very good. I am sure there are others also.

I think I'll go with Ko. I can't find Rinoa and Adeniumcenter doesn't ship to the UK. It's a shame, as they seem to have a wide variety.

Thanks!

Hi frearjack,
I didn't realize that with adeniumcenter?
Rinoa has some seeds on eBay. tw-adeniums
Ko, is great and very reputable, would be a good choice.

Hi frearjack,
I have just received a pack of seeds from AMB Trading via Amazon.co.uk and they look fine (arrived undamaged from Poland) but I guess successful germination will be the proof. This is my first attempt at growing Adenium and I have chosen Obesum Honey and Sunday. I haven't found many suppliers in UK.

Can someone give me the link to Ko and Rinoa's ebay stores? I can't seem to find them at all, even under "tw-adeniums"

Should be able to find them on eBay, if you type in on left column where it states specify seller.
adenium_ko is there and rinoa under tw_adeniums. Rinoa will send a PDF of what she has and has some nice seeds and plants on eBay right now.

Hope this helps,
Rick
