Use the RHS website - - and click on Plant Finder. Entering daphne alpina gives three nurseries who can supply it and they all do mail order.

Daphnes have a reputation for being difficult and short-lived but I think this is undeserved. Give them what they want, avoid extremes of drought and waterlogging, and they should be fine. Daphne alpina requires a sunny, well-drained position. Although it grows on limestone in the wild, it will tolerate acid or alkaline soils. Two things to remember with all daphnes - they don't like root disturbance so tip it out of the pot and put it straight in the soil (don't tease the roots out) and it must NEVER get dry at the root; if it does it will die.

Good luck.
