I'm always on the lookout for unusual seeds and when I glom onto a new seed site I spend a couple of days looking up everything they have in their catalog. That's why I have such a diverse collection of plants and seeds and how I discovered Trichosanthes kirilowii. That flower still blows me away!

All the prices are in US Dollars. They have an awesome selection of succulents and an amazing list of seeds in the Proteaceae Family (I've tried for decades to grow Protea nerifolia and nana but can never keep them alive long enough to bloom - wrong climate probably). I'm tempted to try again .. maybe.

Here is a link to their catalog:

I'm going to be placing an order in a few weeks so if anyone would be interested in combining an order to save on shipping, let me know.

Is it not great to refer to a time period as decades?

Silver Hill is very good. Highly recommended.

An excellent source - very reasonably priced - that I found on Bid or Buy - the South African equivalent of Ebay - is a gent by the handle Seeds_and_All.

Here is his current listings:

http://www.bidorbuy.co.za/seller/390651/Seeds_and_All

He has about 3,000 listings.

On BoB you purchase in South African Rands and the current exchange rate is

1 South African Rand equals
0.091 US Dollar

And the prices on B o B are quite reasonable. Most are sold in small lots as small as 1 seed. Shipping costs are quite reasonable. In a recent purchase of 8 varieties totaling 100 seeds, the total costs including shipping was 218.80 Rands - shipping was just 55 Rands.
