Well done getting it after waiting a long time! :) Lovely plant. I have often looked at them on Long Acre and thought how lovely it would be to be able to grow them outdoors.

Karen - this is another plant first sold by Crug Farm in North Wales

Ah, now you say that, I think it was Crug Farm where I saw the Sheffleras. :)

Karen, that's where I first saw them.......but they were so expensive!!!

DD - Crug Farm may be expensive until you realise they went to Taiwan to collect the seed, came back and sowed it in North Wales, propagated the resulting plants until they got enough to sell. And the ones they do sell are a good size. You're probably paying for at least ten years' work

When you put it like that, it's certainly not expensive!! and we as gardeners are very grateful to them, the modern day plant hunters!!
