I've never even seen a brug in real life, but you people have me really wanting one. Will any of you brug addicts have cuttings or seeds in the near future that you might be willing to part with for postage? Alternately, are there any reliable nurseries on the web that you could recommend for their brugs? Thanks for any info!
nmax, best nursery I would send someone too would be http://www.hodnik.com and http://www.nativehabitat.com would be my second pick despite the fact that the one is overseas and the other is rather expensive. You pay for things like quality, speed of delivery, size of plant, etc. Speed of delivery is the most important thing to me. I don't care if the Brugmansia is 2 inches tall as long as its here instead of overthere. Brugmansia take a few weeks to a month to adjust once they are repotted or cutt so the quicker I get the hybrid I am after the better for me. Especially as I like to try to set seeds on my Brugmansia in hopes of getting that one special Brugmansia I can't live without. Just call me cheap as I would rather create a beautiful Brugmansia then have to buy it. Of course so far all I have done is bought and tried to create. Ahh, the pitfalls of being a Brugmansia lover.
Thanks for the info and the offer. I am trying to start some datura seeds now and am looking forward to having brugs also so that I can compare the two plants. I know what you mean about not wanting to wait for a plant that you want. Considering that plants are an inanimate object, they sure can create a lot of excitement and pleasure!
I'll throw one in also. I have some stems rooting now. It won't bloom this year but you can anticipate the joy for next year. I am making a big bed for my datura next year. I have already started breaking ground.Jim
Thanks for the offers Jim and K'ht'. Just let me know when it will be ready to send so that I can send you my address and postage. I only have a few things that I could offer you. I will have some Bachelor Button seeds and some peony roots this fall if you would like them for a trade. Please let me know.
