Hi, I'm looking for some Linden trees (Tilia Platyphyllos or Tilia cordata). Anybody knows nursery in/around Auckland selling them?

 

Also tips where to buy other European trees/shrubs - stuff like Hazelnut, red currant, gooseberry, European plum (not the watery ones you buy in shops here) or Mirabelle plum, rose hip. Stuff like that. Any ideas?

 

 

 

Thanks

Ask Mitchell & Webb?

 

NSFW video - on the "unusual odour" from the Linden Tree:

 

It's the flowers - and yes - I think it's true:

Hehe, I believe they got Linden (Tilia) confused with Callery (Bradford) pear tree. Or maybe it's some special variety in UK? Linden I know definitely does not smell like semen :).
