Yes, Dan is correct: plantarum.com.br is not the biggest book seller in
Brazil. By now, they were most interested in distribute their books within
Brazil, so they may not so fast with worldwide internet commerce. In
addition, Dan was correct when he said that Harri Lorenzi is almost the
entire time in field trips or writing the books. He is the owner and the
bookwriter! (and also the field man) By the other side, his books has much
more research on it that most (fastly arriving) horticulture books I have
seen around. Just try this.
Very best wishes,
