I think that's a great decision frybo!! hope you find one! I've mentioned this plant to several experienced gardeners I know and they've not heard of/seen it..maybe it's new?? :-)

Have found it on the internet - Crocus are stocking it, amongst others. I am going to try and find it somewhere cheaper though - not that I'm tight or anything!

well done..did it say it was a new version? and I don't blame you for looking for cheaper..if you're anything like me, you can get carried away in nurseries/garden centres... :-)

Thanx M! I just checked where I bought this cos we go to a garden centre at Almondsbury fairly frequently - not too far from you - but this plant wasn't one I bought there (unusually!)
Hope you find one, I'm hoping I can keep it til next year -am finding out how/what to do...
cheers j :-)
