Enter ebay which proved there were lots of lovely plants out there and that I was going to need a second job to get them. While I did get a couple of small plants, it was the discovery of a local nursery that really opened the flood gates. It is a strange little place called Hare Hatch, and on arrival I was really not sure I was in the right place. However entering into the main sales area I was greeted by a row of large aloes all in flower and tables of smaller ones. It turns out the owner is an avid succulent collector and these were all plants he had grown himself and was now selling. The collection was in a shocking state having been neglected for years, but this did mean it was being sold off cheap and I was a kid in a candy shop.
