Well, since Thompson and Morgan no longer serves the US and has closed its US outlets,
I'm trying to locate a single source for the following seeds:

aubretia `Blue Cascade'
echinops ritro
eryngium

Anyone know of a source for these seeds? Thanks!

Try Chiltern seeds. They are in England but ship to the US. They only have the Cascade mix though. Not just the blue.

Thanks, Elena. I saw their name, but since they were located in the UK, I assumed their policy
would be similar. I've already checked out Johnny's Seeds, Seedsavers Exchange, Swallowtail Seeds,
etc.

Have you checked Outside Pride? Did a quick check and it looks like they have the seeds you want. Have never ordered from them. Park Seed, Swallowtail, and Johnny's all list Eryngium.
Best wishes in your search. Love the colors of the plants you are searching for Smiling

Mary: I ordered everything except for the echinops, which they didn't have. Thanks for the suggestion.

Alplains had
Echinopsis intricatissima (Cactaceae)

But that's probably different from echinops ritro

Thank you, Rick. It never hurts to look, though, does it? Whistling

Chiltern is superb. As is Seedaholic. And Outsidepride is very good.

Check out suggestions at the greenpages
