I'm so sorry Tony. We put so much time, effort, money and passion into our plants, that when something like this happens ... it's heartbreaking. Keep the faith Tony ... and remember ... Karma will take care of the rest!
That is a shame. I know how you fell, I've been there myself. I hate to say this but you may need to expand your search a little. It is very possible that the person responsible has never been toy your greenhouse, but knows somebody that has. That person mentioned the plants and thief decided to go and take them. Either way the thief sounds to have knowledge of which plants were valuable, so it's clearly a fellow grower.
I went ahead and posted on gardenweb for you. It just makes me SICK to hear of someone with so much integrity and generosity losing valuable plants to some petty thief. Hope you catch them and they pay for it!
Man I'm sorry to hear this. I remember being at your place a few years ago and seeing some of the plants you mention. Some people are real losers! Maybe night cameras set up here and there would be the way to go especially with you new greenhouse!
Take care, I hope they find who did this to you.
It is really discouraging to hear such news. Your loss is our loss. I hope that the person is caught, humiliated, and thrown in prison. My only hope is that he or she never realizes how rare some of those plants are and realizes that someone will eventually ask questions and they end up in a ditch somewhere.
Whatever we can do, we will. It could happen to anyone.
Xvart, pray that a truncata black ISN'T found in a ditch because it might be unsavable. I hope that s/he is caught with the plant and was caring for it. I think the hight of the truncata might not help, they could have tried to make....cuttings.
