Final Hill View Rare Plants list
« on: February 14, 2018, 09:27:35 AM »
Hi everyone,

many of you, particularly other Australian members will have had a connection with Marcus Harvey of Hill View Rare Plants here in Australia.

I'd just like to share that his partner Susan and his son Alex have prepared a final catalogue of the beautiful plants lovingly collected and cultivated by Marcus over the years that he operated Hill View Rare Plants. Many of these plants, especially those in the Crocus and Fritillaria genus, were only available from Hill View and are very unlikely to be offered in Australia again.

The final catalogue has gone online tonight.

While Marcus only supplied ‘Year to flowering’ and ‘Flowering size’ bulbs and grew the babies on for future catalogues, this time all stock is included.
This means that 1st/FS bulbs will be sent first, and later orders will be supplied on a 2 for 1 or 3 for 1 basis, depending on size.

This is a last chance to acquire some of the rare treasures he offered.

You can view the list here:

It is important to note that they are only offering material within Australia and then not Western Australia. Some stock is already gone.

I think that I've just blown my plant-budget for the year :-[
But all in a good cause ;D
