New member from SW Wales

Postby Scubades » Wed Jun 07, 2017 3:12 pm

Hi,
My total epiphyllum collection, mainly obtained through Hollygate nursery in Sussex has been lost to frost during two house moves and now having retired to a little village near Newcastle Emlyn I have decided to rebuild my collection. I thought it would be easy, but found out that following the death of the owner of Hollygate the rest of the family decided to close the business and I am finding great difficulty in location another source. So I am hoping that society members are prepared to sell me cuttings of their collection. My preferences are for large impressive blooms or highly scented ones. I had a couple of large white flowering plants that opened in the evening, filling the house with a wonderful scent. I will browse the Epiphyllum section of the forum and contact members when a photo or description appeals to me to see if they are willing to offer a cutting for sale as I have no plants to offer in exchange. I hope this is an acceptable approach. Regards
Des

Welcome to the forum, Des. Carl on the Isle of Wight is into epiphyllums but I haven't seen a post from him lately. It might be worth sending him a PM (Private Message) via the link near the top right hand corner of the forum page.

Hi Scubades, It might be worth looking on ebay too (a bit of a risk I know, but I've been mostly lucky with cuttings I have bought). I've also bought from The Cactus Shop in the past and been pleased (link below). Good luck.

Haage's Nursery in Germany has a fantastic selection of Epiphyllums and related plants. Their plants are always very good.
