Does anyone know where i could buy a SKIMMIA JAPONICA ` FRUCTU ALBO`, ( see pic ) there is one site, but they are charging nearly £12 for delivery, there must be other offers out there, maybe someone knows someone selling one or can get a cutting, any info on how to obtain a decently priced plant would be great. And thanks to all who left comments on my pics.




I've had a good search for this in all the usual places even on RHS Plant Finder, but there are very few places online that I can find that sell the plant for less than £9 and delivery is around £12. I assume you were talking about Burncoose?
I did find a substitute - Skimmia japonica 'Kew White'. That is a lovely little specimen and more freely available.
There are plenty of suppliers of Skimmias on the RHS site, if you can spare the time to ring around and search on their sites. Sorry I couldn't help with the other one, but I think it is also known as Wakehurst White, you may have more luck finding it under that heading.

I found Wakehurst White (Fructo Alba) on Binny Plants for £7.50 each and delivery was a flat rate of £7.50, £15 in total.

I have used them before and the plants are healthy and packed well.

You may find a good local Garden centre will order it for you. Not sure what ones there are in Scotland but I have Notcutts and Hilliers not far from me who will try and get things if I ask
