Another alternative when seeking unusual plants is visiting Yellow Book gardens.  I've obtained a lot of unusual plants that way over the years.

I should make it clear that I mean many places have plants for sale - I not advocating my mother-in-laws method of helping herself to 'cuttings' !!

Don't dismiss garden centres out of hand.  I got 3 x Camelot Cream foxgloves for £18 from Homebase last May. They flowered profusely for 3 months (see pic above) and I believe they will flower again this year.  I have also had some half price end of season bargains from local garden centres - including Harlow Carr!
