  • Yes That One Again...

    ...Has anyone got any skirret, either as seeds or slips ? I know RealSeeds used to do it, but not this year, and I just can't find a supplier in this country.
    Should have grown it the first year I thought about it...

    Now you come to mention it, snohare - I do happen to have some skirret seeds but I don't know how viable they are. PM me if you are interested.
    Whooops - now what are the dogs getting up to?

        Oh wow, AP - some really fascinating seeds on that site. Having spent far too much on Tattieman's site I'd better avoid it for a while!

              Ooh, thanks for that link Frank !
              Would you believe I've been g**gling skirret and keep getting links to Amish companies and places in NZ, but not to Pennard ?
              (I knew that G**gle is notorious now for "personalising" its searches, so that typing the same term into the search box on different computers leads to varying results, but this is severe !)
              I like their seed tatties. How many do you get in a kilo, anyway ?

                Yes, I tried Thomas Etty, Binley (I think that was one of the ones with no useful search engine), as well as all the bookmarks I could think of, that I always save because I think someday they might have something unusual that I'm looking for...but I had missed Pennard's somehow !
                The problem now is, I need a twenty acre field and a pushwheel hoe to grow all the seeds I want to buy after looking at all these catalogues.

                    I'd budget for 8 - 10 seed sized spuds per kilo

                      I bypassed the Bonnie Dundees and went for a Highland Prince - wonder what the new year will bring!

                          Aye, you can dress it up with posh foreign words if you want, make it look all glamorous and exciting - but at the end of the day it is a lot of effort and expense and it leaves a hollow hunger and a bad taste in the mouth !
                          (But I'm not bitter or twisted on the subject of amour. )

                          Having seen the cost of delivery, without even looking to see what counts as "Scottish Highlands", I think all I'll be buying there is veggie seeds.
