Don't know of anywhere selling the seeds in the UK, but you can buy plug plants from Thomson & Morgan - their Shasta Collection includes one of the varieties you're seeking http://www.thompson-morgan.com/flowers/flower-plants/perennial-and-biennial-plants/shasta-daisy-collection/p90752TM

You can buy shasta seeds from anywhere-it would seem that that variety is only available as a plant-it may be they do not come true from seed -just a thought.

That's what I thought sotongeoff.  I looked on Sarah Ravens website, I thought if anybody would have them she would, but no luck. The only ones I seen of these varieties have been plants ready to grow. You probably have to split them or take cuttings to get them true as you say.

Best of  luck with your search potteries phil, let us know how you get on.

thanks all, I think sotongeoff is probably right,but I will keep on searching in hope, if not it looks like it will have to be plants ,which is a shame because I really enjoy growing from seed.
