Watching the Beechgrove garden .

And loved the alpine daphne they showed.

Where can I get these little delights?



Daphne Retusa - I googled it and found a few nurseries selling it online, Kath.

Hi Kath, Binny, Kevock plants and Abriachan nursery near Beauly all do it according to the RHS Plant finder. Macplants also do it. I got their current catalogue at SRGC Show Edinburgh and it is in there. I bought mine from them and it is well settled in a sink garden. I highly recommend them from personl experience. If you are going up to the SRGC show in Aberdeen in May then one of these nurseries may be able to bring it for you. The postage will be crippling soon. They all have web sites and you can contact them by email.

Kevock Garden Plants in Lasswade advertise this daphne. Contact them to see if it is in-stock then come up to Nairn on Saturday to collect it from them.
Kevock are one of the commercial nurseries with a stall at the SRGC Show in Nairn this Saturday. Bulbaholic and Moongrower are the Show Secretaries! Come on up for day out in sunny Nairn and visit us.

Kath...was in Binny Plants today, that will NOT be the shock of the week!!!...
anyway - they had your little Daphne and when I say little it is absolutely teeny weeny.
It is around 2 or 3 inches high - he told me it was a 2 year old seedling/cutting - I can't remember which he said. It was £6.75 for this tiny wee thing.
Billy certainly done well out of Beechgrove this week - did you see all the Binny Plant labels on everything they were planting :))
If you have no luck getting your hands on it elsewhere - I can go purchase it for you and send it up to you - but hopefully you can source it at a stockist who has one that is a wee bit bigger.

That is a nice one - in fact they all look very nice :) could always do a Karensusan and make sure that you get your monies worth out of the postage and order more than one :))))
