    Hi all,

    I am local to Vancouver and like to grow beautiful and unusual conifers and other gymnosperms, including starting from seed. I would love to add Wollemia to my collection. It seems like they were being sold and cultivated in North America several years ago but now I am unable to find any sources, except for B'z Greenhouse, which has very limited supply.

    Does anyone on the Pacific West Coast have a reproductive Wollemia? Or know of a reliable source of seeds or seedlings? Thanks so much!

    I seem to recall seeing a couple smaller plants at Minter's in Chilliwack a couple months ago. They also had a large reproductively mature one, but I don't think it's for sale.

    The Wollemia seeds I've collected from cultivated plants have all been empty (non-viable), likely due to lack of cross-pollination.
