HI,

Yes, I am located in France.

For the moment I can sold only M officinarum.

I can still send them bare root to UK.

30€ for a plant of 5-6 years old 

45€ for a plant of 6-9 years old (see some example on picture):

I can also sell the "Womandrake" It is a very rare specimen with 2 perfect legs (for 250€)

(+ shipment: 15€/plant, 20€ for 2 plants)

Best regards 

Yves

i once purchased lagochilus herb, from a trader in europe (was quite cheap) and removed the seeds which, came with the package.

they germinated well, this plant, is not possible to cultivate in most parts of oz. it's native to turkmenistan, a cold climat country.

might grow well in the alpine regions of oz, and tas.

 

i like lagochilus, the home grown herb was more potent than the purchased herb, which might suggest it doesn't store well...

Ok @Yves0071  I’m after M.turcomanica in particular. I’ll keep looking. Thanks for your response. 
 

@withdrawl clinic yes lagochilus is an absolute pain to grow in oz from what I understand. This one would be getting grown in uk in a controlled environment.

Never had any luck with any Lago seed I got my hands on.

 

Tried a few sources from abroad and a coupla members kindly sent me down some herb sourced seed a while back. 

 

One purchased source put up another genus... Grrrr. There was a situation of some seed named as L. inebrians being another species with chatter across a few forums. I'm sure there is a thread here about it. 

 

May your hunt be fruitful :)

i managed to grow it for a while, even in the semi tropics, i posted about it with pics a long time ago (2007??)

as well i have encountered a few fake lago seeds, and even sprouted them, to find out which plant they came from, but i could not id the plant.

those fake seeds were sold with malicious intent, just to make money!:devil:

they were much bigger than the real lago seeds.

 

you mention the uk, so my source is quite close to you, it was an ethnoshop located in vienna called querbeet!:)

good luck, lago would be a herb i would use once in a while, as i realy liked it!:wub:
