Most of the big companies sell smallish packs, but usually more than a couple of dozen. Seed might be cheaper to try a few.

Bit late for seed I would have thought.
Try local DIY stores, garden centres. You might still find some available.
Failing that all the big seed companies stock them, search on line for available stock.
Best of luck.

Presumably you mean the overwintering type, tangoman? I think 'Electric' are still widely available, I saw some today in our two local garden centres. And there is still time, just, to plant them.
