Does anyone know where I can buy White Plumeria Frangipani seeds?

Norfolk, United Kingdom Gb

Im not really into growing tropical plants but the flowers of Plumaria (especially Singapore White) have a very special childhood memory. When I lived in Singapore I remember these beauties growing all over the Estate I lived on and was forever picking them for my mum and couldnt stop smelling them, almost like a Freesia smell but stronger. I remember the Milky sap (apparently poisenous) that leaked when I picked them. I would love to have a go at growing one but have no idea which soil type and feed to use. I have a south facing conservatory. Just need to know where I can get hold of good seed for a white plant.

Hi Norfolk....Thompsom and Morgan sell Frangipani seeds but they dont specify the colour and they take 3 to 4 years to flower from seed anyway. If you look at they have 6 month seedlings of specific types, but again you will have to wait for flowers. I have grown one from seed that is now 3 years and am praying for a flower this year.................

Yippee, I have 10 Plumeria Obtusa seeds coming (the exact ones I remember in Singapore). In the meantime I will do my homework on how to sow and grow. I feel like a kid in a sweet shop, cant wait :-)
