Buying Perennial Vegetables from France

I’m rather like a child at Christmas when I see the postman coming with a parcel for me.  Today there were two!  I have ordered Daubenton’s kale and some other perennial veggies – oca, yacon, perpetual leeks and sorrel from two suppliers in France:

I have also put links for them on the blogroll to the right. 

Ordering plants from overseas is not too daunting even if you are not fluent in the language the process is recognisable as the same as any English language site and if you are unsure about the actual meanings you can paste chunks of text into a Google or other translation site eg

I placed my orders last weekend and they must have been despatched immediately.  The new arrivals were well packed and are strong and healthy.

About Anni Kelsey

I love forest gardens and forest gardening, nature, reading and everything good about being alive. I have written two books - the garden of equal delights (2020) - about the principles and practice of forest gardening; and Edible Perennial Gardening (2014) - about growing perennial vegetables in polycultures, which is basically forest gardening concentrating on the lower layers.
