We have an expanding range of these interesting and varied plants – mostly succulents, but also some epiphytic cacti (i.e. those which live in trees), like the wonderfully scented Epiphyllums and Selenicereus, have worked their way into the catalogue.

An increasing number of our tender plants are grown by us on our nursery, and will mostly be supplied in 9 cm pots.

Winter Mail Order
During the winter we stop sending out our tender plants, but leave a selection of them visible on our web site so you can see what we will have next year. If there are any plants you are interested in please let us know, so we can reserve them for you.
