Sheilam nursery

  • One of the two remaining nurseries in South Africa.
  • They are offering plants with locality data, mostly collections of Bruce Bayer.
  • You can order via email, but be prepared for a lot paperwork (which costs money ofcourse) – but still, it is a good source for new localities and collection numbers.
  • In past I had problems with worst quality (size) of plants, but now it seems to improve.

I've had very good luck with plants from SMG Succulents (http://www.squawmountaingardens.com/ ). Very nice plants at reasonable prices with reasonable shipping. They are located in the US state of Oregon.
