Euphorbia Esculenta seed source?

Post by RorBurg56 »

Hello good forum users, as the title explains I am seeking some euphorb esculenta seeds, so far I've come up with nil so thought I'd ask here incase there may be a grower or if somebody knows somebody else etc. Any help greatly appreciated ๐Ÿ˜Š,
Rory

I don't know of any. Are you after the violet-scented flowers or an alternative vegetable? :D

With such esoteric tastes you should join the BCSS forum and possibly join the BCSS.

I lurk both but haven't gotten around to it yet ๐Ÿ™‚, just a shy guy lol. My tastes certainly are esoteric but the good cactophiles here keep me grounded with the endless blogs and seed growing logs ๐Ÿ˜Š

Also, any type of flowers would be agreeable as I haven't seen sight of seed plant or cuttings, just the other much more common medusoid euphorb (which are all beautiful too) but the heart settles on what it cannot find.

Faint heart never won fairly rare euphorb. :oops:

Even Brookside Nursery don't have it. Though they are now not sending to the UK, I believe. I think any UK members of the International Euphorbia Society who are into the succulent types are likely to be in the BCSS.

Perhaps if we keep this thread floating to the top someone else will notice.

Your pretty much correct there sir and I'm realizing more that that mentality does me no service ๐Ÿ˜ถ. Talking to new people is often kinda worrisome but it turns out well usually lol. Will prob have another look at bcss again re joining as it does make sense.

I am not comfortable with large social groups. However, you must remember that the majority of the BCSS are going to be weirdos, nerds or obsessives. The rest of them are very used to talking with weirdos, nerds or obsessives. :study:

That brings to mind Groucho Marx, who resigned from a club he never visited: โ€œBecause I donโ€™t want to belong to any club that would have me as a member!โ€
