Spring has finally arrived and so has our first set of additions to our availability list for 2022. It includes a number of choice species and as in previous years some are only available in a very limited quantity.

9th January 2022

We are currently having to give time and priority to family matters requiring travel. Unfortunately responses may take slightly longer than normal at this time. Please be patient, we will get back to you!


1st October 2021

Our End of Season Special Offer is now on.

22nd August 2021

Now available on the Special Offers page is our new range of seed-raised opuntias. This is our first time offering them for sale online and so we are making them available at a special introductory price for a limited period of time.

Our main plant list has also had 50 new species added, a number of which are only available in very limited quantities.

8th August 2021

We have launched a new Special Offers page and for our first offering we are giving you the opportunity to purchase some cacti and succulents raised by the late Terry Smale, who sadly passed away earlier in the year. These plants were grown to be sold at talks and events and it is his widow's wish that they are still sold to enthusiasts.


We have also updated our availability list with over 70 new species added.


25th July 2021

We are delighted to now be able to offer a small range of sundries including pots and labels. We shall be adding more items in the near future, so do let us know if there is anything you would like us to stock.

4th April 2021

Due to the cold weather, we are delaying the posting of orders until night-time temperatures improve. We are still accepting orders.

14th March 2021

The days are getting longer and warmer so our seedlings have already had their first watering of the season. Our availability list has been updated today with almost 80 new species.

1st January 2021

The new year brings in some changes and challenges to the cactus growing hobby with the requirement of phytosanitary certificates and CITES permits to import and export plants. It is due to the cost of these requirements that we are now unable to ship plants to Northern Ireland and the EU.
