    Default Yacon

    I have decided not to grow these again as to be honest, I wasn't too keen and I can't spare the space.
    See http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gra...ady_22765.html
    I had dug up the tubers before the frost, but when I checked on them today some had rotted. I have trimmed them and each piece has growing points, although some are small. They are similar to the pieces sent out by Real Seeds when I bought them, 5 for 12.50.
    If anyone wants to take a chance on them, I will send out 2-3 bits per person depending on how many requests I get. Probably enough for 3-4 people.
    The only thing I am looking for really is disease resistant cukes for a cold greenhouse, but don't worry if you haven't got any. PM me if you are interested.
    I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!
    Now a little Shrinking Violet.
