Thanks Dan

What's a bacup show, or should that be backup? Ah, silly me, it must be Bacup? ::)

Rare plants has several, see http://rareplants.co.uk though they are only dispatched until mid April, so you are in a hurry to order (this is mail order only). If you search for Asarum on their web page (instead of clicking on Asarum in the menu) you will find also the plants that are out of stock, with lots of amazing photos.

As Diane and I agreed recently .....we really need a 'smiley' to symbolise IRONY.

...'beautiful Bacup'...  :-X (possible symbol for irony)?

It has to be beautiful to me anyway, my darling Sue was born there!

Not sure if this is still newsworthy, but have you tried www.futureprimitiveplants.co.uk yet? They offer a small range of Asarum cultivars at affordable costs.
