National Collection and Planta Vera

I have received a large number of enquires from members about the current status of Planta Vera Nursery. As most of you will know, Morris May held a National Collection of Violas, but relinquished this title at the end of last year.

The main question has been does he still have the varieties and are they for sale? So far my efforts to make contact with this question have come to nought. However, the most recent edition of the Plantfinder lists both the nursery and the violas, so we must assume that unless we hear different then the plants are safe in cultivation and remain available. I will continue to try and make contact so that I can print a definite answer.
