Jungle Plants - but far from cheap.

I see them come up on eBay a fair bit.

If you aren't looking for fancy ones then grow from seed? The ones I grew from seed last year (and kept in large pots in the conservatory) grew to more than 8' and flowered in August.

Alan Hustwood is a HTUK member (Alan Brugs), I think he sells cuttings.

Our local garden centres sell the species brugs as small plants so yours may do too (Patio Plus or something like that) but as Kristen said you can buy seeds of these fairly easily.

I've got some plain-Jane suaveolens left over from last year if you want some (assuming they are still viable in year 2?)

P.M. me an address if they are any good to you

never saw them! only a few cuttings and they seemed pricey considering how easy it is to take cuttings of these...

There are always Brugs on eBay, yes expect to pay for nice cuttings, easy to take but they tend to hold a certain price on eBay.
Buy one plant and you get as many cuttings as you want within a year.

You can always get them around late spring/early summer from most garden centres, they sell small cuttings in a box.
