Dr Steve Furness has a huge collection of Sempervivum and Jovibarba at his nursery.

Unfortunately he doesn't do mail order so you will need to be in the UK to take advantage of the selection.

Has anyone been there to buy?!

He claims to have over 1.000 sempervivums & jovibarbas. What a waste not showing them to the world online and having a online sale!

Yes - I've been there and Dr Furness does indeed have a huge collection of semps and jovis. It is some way from me - about 140 miles each way so in these days of high petrol costs I won't be going again soon. He also organised a couple of Sempervivum Conventions some years ago (maybe 8 -10 years ago ?) the second of which I attended. The now defunct One House Nursery had a sales table plus a couple of other growers. I bought a very large number of plants - it was great fun! There were talks and a visit to the Alpine Plant Centre to view Steve's collections. Some really nice plants but there doesn't seem to be any hope of mail order or even a list.
