I've used them twice - last year and again this year - and been pleased with the results. They are quick to respond to email. And their postage is just that, no handling charge. Unfortunately, they don't provide specific germination details with their seeds so you have to do some digging to find whatever info you can. Some you can figure out based on where the plant grows, eg. something that has a cold winter season probably needs cold stratification. And to better replicate the spring freeze/thaw cycle, follow the cold strat with a warm cycle and another cold strat. How many cycles? Who knows.
Anyone who believes exponential growth can go on forever in a finite world is either a madman or an economist.
Growing Marula from seed is not reccomended. "Elite trees are identified and seedling are propagated from them vegetatively by means of either cuttings are tissue culture. This will ensure that the tree is vigorous and produces fruit in abundance and of good quality. Poor trees are normally harvested for their wood in Africa - good for carving and the best producing trees left to grow.
