Hey Rod, my mum has a nice big patch growing here in Denmark. I'm leaving in a few days and will be heading to Esperance, though I'd rather not go all the way into BB with my van on, but I could always leave a bag of tubers somewhere at Boxwoodhill or Jeramungup for you to pick up if you are likely to get that way in the next week or so.


Hey that's fantastic, thanks; the Jerramungup District High School would be ideal, my wife works in the library there on Thursdays & Fridays. Or... we are pondering on a trip to Albany next Tuesday and if that just happened to be the day you were going maybe we could meet on the road somewhere.

If they grow in Denmark they'll grow here, super!

Hi Mattyoga / EB

what is the situation with growing them in Perth. When are the seed-tubers normally around and when do you plant them out into beds ?

Look interesting and might give them a try.

Hey Rod, were you meaning this coming Tuesday as in about 4 days? I'll be going past on Sunday sometime or perhaps monday if I get delayed. I've harvested a big chunk and have it in an old pillowslip, I can keep it damp, then hide it somewhere near the Boxwoodhill turn off. I'll take a photo and let you know exactly where it is.

Hey Rod, nice to catch up on the side of the road in the middle of no where, sorry I didn't have longer to stop, the weather got even worse heading up to Ravensthorpe, hasn't stopped and it's still going.. Hope you have some luck with the yacon and the horse radish. Tell your wife that the tangy ginger jam is going down a treat and won't last long.. :headbang:

Glad you like it; and thanks again for the bag of goodies. Sorry about the weather, it's not quite normal for this time of the year, mostly the rain has finished by mid-January but this year is a bit odd.

Don't forget to pm me your mother's address so that I can post her some seeds too.
