Thanks in advance

I have used and recommend:

Urban Jungle - excellent sized plants and very well packaged - current favourite.
Amulree - good size plants
Coblands - good plants, some great bargains
Jungleseeds - good range of seeds/rhizomes
Truckermarsh - some rare plants
Swinemeadowfarm nursery - well packaged and good communication, big plants

Palmcentre gets a great recommendation here but I have not bought from them yet.
