    I've checked my tubers and they weigh in at a total of just over 500g, which equates to about 50 tubers. So if no one else expresses an interest by Wed am then it should be about 12 each. I'd say there's only really enough for 2 more people.

    Postage for a royal mail packet (2nd class) is 2.20.

    Thank you all for the interest, I'll be sending the tubers on Wednesday, as that is my next day off.

    Thank you for the parcels that I've received, some interesting packs of seeds that I can't wait to grow.

    To anybody else.... apologies but there is no more Oca.

    Thanks

    All your Oca is now in the post, as of this morning (VC, KC, FF). I hope you manage to get a decent crop from it.
    I just grew it in tubs as with potatoes, but as per the instructions from Realseeds, I think the best tip is to leave it a few weeks after the first hard frost and the tubers should bulk up nicely.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks Paul, arrived just now. They look an amazing colour, I can't wait to grow them! I wonder if I should grow some in the mound of rotting grass/ soil. My potatoes did okay in there last year and it's lower now..
