    Default Mangold Wurtzel

    Hi there! Does anybody know how I can get hold of Mangold seeds? The only places I can find them is on Agricultural sites supplying seeds enough for farming on a large scale. I am only looking for 250 seeds or so.....
    Many thanks in advance for any advise!

    That's what I thought but reading the website apparently they are good for brewing! Might just buy some myself!

    Thanks so much guys, looked at the site and its perfect, completing the order form now! The plants are for the pigs we intend to keep but if there are any brewing experiments we can carry out you can be sure we're on board!

    I always though Mangolds were the same as swedes - obviously need to do some checking. Several of my relatives say swedes are only fit for cattle food, but I like them boiled, mashed with butter and black pepper. Never managed to grow them successfully, though.

    This blog may be of interest to you (I'm assuming mangold /mangel are the same thing, due to the beer reference). He might be able to help you with sourcing the seeds?
