    I am interested in finding a Rhus tree, so would be grateful for any unwanted suckers / offshoots; grasses in particular pheasant's tail grass and stipa spp.; ajuga reptans (blue flower); pulmonaria (with blue flowers not pink); young apple trees; vegetables; annual cut flowers; hellebores; ferns and herbs. Also looking for plants with bright orange flowers suitable for sunny positions. I am quite open to other swaps, so please contact me for suggestions!

    I also have a number of unidentified small cactuses and succulents (house plants) that I no longer want or can easily propogate - free if collected!
