    Sounds like a perfect trip to take the kids for a short trip while mom prepares shabbos. See you on Friday!

    You wouldn’t use them because, the daled minim have to be your own. Taking the ones from the garden would be stealing and would become posul for the mitzvah. That is, unless the botanical gardens sells them. Who knows, maybe one day.

    Brooklyn Lulav?

    You could use it, but I doubt it would ever be possible to provide the community with a greenhouse….

    its  maybe the same "meen"

    But you are definitely NOT ‘yotzhe’ with none of them (not even one of these 4 meenim) ,Sorry buddy if I spoiled your ‘Koch’ in the Botonical.

    why not?

    why not?

    Would you explain why such minim would not be permissible to be used?

    Nice!

    The Arovos have to be Arvei Nachal to be used in the Daled Minim (although any willow may be used for Hoshaynos) These do not seem to be of that type.

    What would be wrong with using them?????
    An esrog is a esrog and a Lulav is a Lulav, seems to me they would be ok???

    the Rebbe Had Mesiras Nefesh during the war, to go from france to Italy to get a esrog. Also If a esrog tree is grafted {the do that to make it stronger} it isnt kosher for the daled minim.

    Surely it would be best to get an Italian grown esrog, an Egyptian lulav, hadassim from Tzfas, and arovos from Crown St. But if the daled minim were to be grown in the Botanical Gardents under supervised conditions, they would be absolutely KOSHER. Ask any Rov.

    There would be no problem with these minim, especially as they are carefully supervised by a CH expert on these things. That’s the thing with anonymous potsers who write as if they know what they are talking about.

    The Kew (botanical) Gardens provided two consecutive war years the Chief Rabbi of England with a few (2) estrogim from the personal Camelia Green House of the Queen’s Mother (a”hashalom).
    The tree here that all seedlings were under the help and supervision of a Talmid Chacham muvhak and baki in the 4 minim.
    However, i don’t think the BBG will sell esrogim, so it’s ok for the socharim to continue to purchase from Calabria…no big competition from the BBG anyway.
