Had a couple of nice surprises today.
They also have a very interesting range of plants for sale, with local herbalists Margaret Connington and Bev Lane being contributors to the collection.
Another surprise there was catching up with Steve Oatway…well known sculptor of metal and junk. Haven’t seen him for a while.
I found Saggitaria (commonly known as arrowhead, duck potato or katniss) of which I bought 3 pots full of tubers and Water Chestnut…an old favourite.
When I got home, I found my eBay order for Oca (New Zealand Yam) had arrived, with 15 tubers to get us started.
These are going into our ‘under-understorey’ of perennial roots and tubers.
We tried to grow them a few years back, twice in fact. Both times our dogs, Charlie and Bronson (who have since passed on) dug them up and ate them.
