Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus) is in season again for root harvest. More information at

Growing well in North Cork area it is the variety called fuseau and has smoother skin than some others. Looking to swap for anything that will look nice in a fairly exposed garden as landscaping new garden this year.

Blast it. I'd love some of that... One of my favourites. But pesky dublin is hours of driving away. You're not coming to Cork anytime I'd guess.

Chili plant seeds. Bought some Madagascan or birds tongue chilis in a supermarket in France last year. Brought them home and dried the seeds. I only need half of them, probably 20 left. Let me know if anyone wants. These are hot hot hot!

I was able to buy sensitive mimosa seeds online and while back. Can't remember from where, but it grew easily enough.

Isn't that very similar to the giant rhubarb (Gunnera tinctoria) which is such a problem on the West coast, esp Achill?

Is there a danger of Gunnera manicata getting out of control too?

you could grow it from seed easily, I did once and had dozens of plants, hard to keep it alive on a windowsill though, it really wants a tropical greenhouse in winter

Apparently not. It's seeds appear to be infertile in Ireland anyway. So it can only move very slowly, by extending the rhizomes outwards.
