Where to purchase nematodes?

Does anybody know where I can purchase nematodes in Portugal? I went to our local garden centre but they didn’t have them.

Nematodes are a great natural way of getting rid of those tiny little flies called gnats that can hang out in your indoor pot plants (or veg patch), destroying plants and generally being annoying.

This is what I’d typically get on Amazon in the UK but they won’t deliver this product to Portugal:

Hi Chris

You could try Amazon.DE or Se. Spain or Germany.

Or if you have family get them to make up a parcel. Because of the cost of shipping if you have family get all the things you want put in a parcel.

If you have a local Cafe that you are known in get the parcel delivered there  because if a parcel is delivered from the Post office in the UK they often don't get delivered. GLS is the problem or as i do i Use UPS and for £25 i can get 28kilo delivered and to the cafe in Gois where i live.

Good luck

Thanks Peter, no family in UK unfortunately. I can't get them delivered from Spain or Germany either. Perhaps there are restrictions because they're alive?

We haven’t done this yet either but...

Have you thought of talking to a local nursery for advice?
We are going to be getting a range of plants and will be having long conversations and getting the best advice for our location from locals and the staff at the local nurseries. Well, that’s the plan!

If you have an AKI nearby, try them. The one I was in today had various varieties.
