Plant suppliers - sedums, semprevivum and more
« on: February 14, 2020, 10:19:29 AM »
This is one to add to the list if it is not already there Alisdair. https://www.sempervivum-et-cie.com/

The plants I ordered a couple of days ago arrived today. They are all large specimens, healthy and they arrived in perfect condition. Apart from the black plastic pots, all the rest of the packaging is fully biodegradable. Including what look like polystyrene balls but which are, in fact, made from expanded corn starch.
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

Thanks for that, David; looks a very interesting range.

I was trying to find a supplier of Iris nigricans after John J's posting when I came across this mail order supplier, a one-time supplier of the said Iris. Looks like a good supplier  of bulbous plants for the future, if it is not already on your list.

David, Jānis Rukāns has such a (deservedly) devoted following that when he has a new list it sells out so very quickly that I'm a little loth to add him to our own suppliers list.  :'( But at least people can now find him from the link in your posting!  :)
