    Hi all

    I am looking for cholla wood.
    [​IMG]

    I have tried looking online for a local supplier, but have not found someone yet.
    Alternative option is to buy online - i see on Amazon there is allot for sale.

    Does anybody know of a supplier locally?
    If not- then may i ask if anybody has had a good experience in general ordering online with Amazon?

    Thank you

    I get cholla down from Zim a couple of times a year, it's also available in the Northern Cape, but I don't trust this source as these invasive plants are mainly poisoned with insecticide there. Locally it's called chain fruit if this makes things easier to find..
