Does anyone know if you can get viable seeds or plants for mahogany trees in the UK? I wonder if they can be grown here? I keep sending off for seeds but as yet I haven't been able to get some that aren't too old
I think it's a tree from the tropics. You'd need a very big heated GH
Nuts right the true mahogany will not grow in the UK. However a tree in the mahogany family, Toona sinensis, will. It can be quite fast growing. Not sure where you would get seed mind.
Chiltern seed have had it in the past
Burncoose nurseries sell this plant.
You can get seeds from http://www.jungleseeds.co.uk/. I have one mahogany tree indoors that is nearly 7ft tall. It drops its leaves in the winter though.
Just back from South Africa and brought back a seed pod from a mahogany tree which contained 4 black and orange seeds, these I have planted on pots in greenhouse hoping they might grow.
The climate here i think may be far too cold,
Should they strike I will let you know.
Thank you repliers all. I've bought some more seeds from a UK source, with easy grow, in the title. I've followed the instructions to the letter but still nothing yet. I live in hope
