I've Made a little list of my wishlist for varieties, really excited to join this lovely community! If anyone has cuttings or plants or knows where I can get some of these varieties I would be super grateful!
    Much love,
    Andrew

    Welcome!

    If you are open to buying plants from nurseries, Preto, Tiger and Improved Celeste are in stock at One Green World nursery in Portland. Burnt Ridge Nursery (a local WA state nursery) has Lattarula and Negronne in stock, both considered by many on here to be synonyms for white marseilles and Violette de Bordeaux repectively.

    Conversely, many members of the community sell cuttings and rooted plants on figbid .com; most of the varieties on your list are offered fairly frequently there.

      How do you like the campaniere? Seems like a really cool french heritage type! I was browsing Thierry's website of all those varieties the other day, absolutely incredible stuff.
