I've had no succes finding broom or our 2 native buckthorns (Rhamnus cathartic & rh. frangula).

Does anyone know where they can be found -- either in the open or from a nursery ?

Yes, they probably have that variety, but you can guarantee they wont be of native origin.... most likely imported from Belgium and Holland.

You can definitely get native Irish broom from CVNI in Bangor.
As for the Buckthorn, unfortunately, and a sad fact is that there is noone in the country who supplies native origin stuff. Only option is to source it from the wild (seeds, cuttings, etc.) at the right time of year..

No you can't 'guarantee' that they are continental imports - but you can give them a ring and ask them

Actually, yes I did ask them and to be semantially accurate as you seem to require, I can guarantee they are continental imports.

If there is a business out there that can supply native varities, which I have looked for, then I would love to know who they are......... as I would happily buy from them
