    I have been looking high and low, and I cannot find a place that sells bayberry bushes. I can find the culture and uses for them, but not the bushes themselves.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!

    Does anyone have an idea where I could source this wonderful little plant with the delightfully waxy berries?

    TIA,

    Pony!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    I got tired of looking after 3 pages of google results. I figured someone on here would know.

    :)

    I've seen them on ebay often. I've had lots of good luck with plantranch on ebay. Send an email.

    Has anyone grown these before? How about starting them from seed?

    I love the smell of bayberry, and would like to add it to candles and soaps. If I can start it from seed, that would be cool. But if it's like starting lavender and rosemary from seed, I'll just go ahead and pick up the bushes!

    TIA,
    Pony!
