import bulbs from Latvia

Submitted by tropicalgirl25… on

Does anyone in Canada imported bulbs from Janis Ruksans rare bulbs, Latvia.

I got the permit to import bulbs from him but sending the money is tricky.

I emailed him but looks like he is busy.

If anyone has done this please help me.

My email address is [email protected]

Does anything here help at all?


Thanks Deesen.

I was trying to setup online money transfer with the help from bank. For some reason it was not working. 

Maybe I have not entered the correct city name or something else.

In Canada bank wont allow us to write on the check "not exceeding $" .

The best option I was told by the bank is to send EURO in Draft.

But I haven not got any reply from the "rarebuls" for about two weeks.

Maybe they are busy.

I got the import permit just to get the bulbs from them.

Sorry for late response.

I have ordered bulbs each of the last 2 years from both J Ruksans in Latvia as well as Augis Bulbs in Lithuania.

In both instances I entered order on-line, then wired money thru my bank to their accounts abroad.

I have received my shipments without difficulty in both instances.

Their deadline for ordering is end of July, I think.

So if anyone wishes to place an order for this fall, now is the time.

Hope the information is helpful.


thank you Scott .

I ordered from Ruksans last year and got the bulbs.

This year ordered from Augis bulbs and Ruksans.
