I always get excited about new plants. Watching seedlings pop up to the surface is endlessly fascinating and getting new plants from a grower or nursery is better than unwrapping my Christmas presents! Someone at work said I must have boring Christmases, but ’tis not so, they just don’t appreciate the joy of new plants.
Today I had a bumper delivery of Jerusalem artichokes, yacon, dioscorea batatas (yam), bunium bulbocastanum, some alliums, apios americana and wasabia plus a lovely Japanese wineberry. These are from Edulis – growers of rare plants – who have a good selection of perennial vegetables plus other lovely things. The perennial vegetable page of their website is to be found at http://www.edulis.co.uk/product/?pid=41522 and I recommend you have a look!
