    they used to do more before the winter of 2011/12 , and have mainly kept the ones that survived and not bothered with re introducing the ones they lost, as a business I could understand .
    Some of the nursery's must of taken a big hit I know Welsh Hollies did.

    are still restocking to get the plants up to a salable size from then with some of the rarer varieties.
