Jungle Giants has Yunnan 2, 10 litres for £60. They will deliver.

They may well have one or two 20 litre ones tucked away, it's worth asking. It's a brilliant place to visit by the way, loads of bamboo, planted out and in poly tunnels. I'll be going Easter Monday, hopefully.

It is interesting that you say they have Papyrifera because I looked and couldn't find it. They have always had it when I looked in the past but only ever on pre-order.
