Anyone else having problems getting the files to open?
Problem for me was file opened on sales conditions sheet and I found it tricky to navigate to the sales catalogue sheet. But found it eventually

Excel and Open Office don't even know how to open it. Excel crashes every try.

I downloaded the third one (English version) and it's opening fine with LibreOffice (I'm on Version 6.1.1.2).

That one did like to open it. Thanks.
Quite a big list. Tempting species.

No first hand experience (yet) myself, but this seems like an interesting list: http://www.richtstatt.de/gymnos_v3/news.php?l=en.

It's an excellent source of seeds from South American cacti, particularly Gymnocalycium and Frailea. I bought seed from Volker Schädlich many times, and I have always been happy with the results. He's long been known as an expert for Gymnos in Germany, and his seed list shows why...

I actually sent him an order this morning, and not only did he reply a few hours later, he even sent the order this afternoon. I've never experienced that kind of super quick service from any seed sellers before. Brilliant!

Same for me. Got a message back this morning and a confirmation this afternoon. It was already in the post before I got the payment details and could pay. Only have experienced that with societies were you need to be a member of. Must go wrong every now and then too, I think... Definately a list to keep on my radar for next early October.

For sure! Really couldn't be happier with the service.
