Since it seems you live in UK the best thing I can suggest you is to buy
(or have a look at)
the book "The Plant Finder 1995/96" by C. Philip and A. Lord (12.99 GBP).
It is a book, published each
year, that lists more than 60,000 plant species and for each gives a list
of nurseries that have that item (if the plant is common they only write
"widely available") among a list of more than 600 UK nurseries and plant
There, for example, I find a nursery that sells Eucharis bulbs.
The name is Dr. Paul Christian and the tel. WAS (+UK) 1978 366399.
(I'm sorry I do not have here the full address).
Hope this help.
