[...I have been thinking ALL day which Semps to buy to breed together. I want to make a red variety with yellow flickers through it. So, I'm going to call them in the morning (as it's 4:09am here) and ask them to send me a variety of 30 in red/yellow/green and very deep red. Let the obsession commence!
Hurray!
I'll let you know what they say tomorrow!Thank you guys so much, I wouldn't have known about Fernwood if you hadn't suggested it. My ''real'' friends know nothing about this subject, as I'm 23 and most young people couldn't care less about botany!] Smiling x

Pia I have moved this from the Pacific thread so we don't loose it. We want to be sure to make it easy to find your Fernwood semps. Hurray!

[...no problem! I'm going to call Fernwood tomorrow, as today I planted some plants in my friends garden and took some pictures of her overgrown U.K. garden which I'm going to turn into a vegetable garden. As soon as I speak to them I will update you guys!] :D

[...Just phoned Fernwood! They were ever so polite, and they thought it was funny I didn't understand the order form, apparently they get a lot of people saying that! They have agreed to do me a mixture of 15 Semps for £30 ($46.50) and they will be posting them as soon as I make the paypal payment next Friday! They were very excited to hear that I'm only 23 and so enthusiastic about Semps! I'm gunna go for red/purple varieties. Does anyone have any varieties in particular they'd like to see me purchase? I'm open to suggestions!]

What ever catches your fancy Pia will be wonderful. It really makes it fun to get some of different mature size (very small, medium and large), and a mix of colors for contrast. You will find your way to what pleases you.
I think that is how most of us started out. : )

How exciting Pia. Don't forget to take photos of how they are packaged when you open the box. We love to see how each vendor does it.

Can't wait to see your new babies. Hurray!

I cannot believe it, I put a 99p bid on a Sempervivum Oddity (golf ball sized or larger) and I won it! :O I'm stunned... So many new plants, all Semps, I may have a space problem soon! Rolling on the floor laughing Making payment to Fernwood on the 14th August, so they'll be here in the next week after that. I got my camera at the ready to get pictures of the arrival of everybody!
