Jerusalem Artichokes

Fancy growing a perennial which also produces lovely flowers. I have got a lot of knobbly Jerusalem Artichokes for swapping. I can send between 5-10 tubers (let me know the amount required)

I am looking for unusual vegetable seeds, sweet potato. stevia, horseradish, lemon grass seeds or plant, creeping thyme, popcorn seeds, luffa seeds, rhubarb crowns, soft fruit canes or any other reasonable offer.

Currently in the UK for a few weeks.
