Re: [pfaf] Plants for abroad
- Dear Sue
It is very hard to answer your question since there are literally many
hundreds of plants you could take.
Have you considered taking bulbs, since these are much easier to transport
and will give years of pleasure. There are many ornamental onions with
delicious tasting leaves, flowers and bulbs, for example, that will do well
there. n particular, there is a N. American bulb, the quamash (Camassia
quamash) that should do very well there and is truly delicious.
These, and lots of other bulbs, are available from garden centres and
nurseries right now for autumn planting.
If you want information on these plants, visit our website and either search
in the database or look at our leaflets on "Ornamental Onions" and
"Alternative Roots Crops".
If you have a more specific idea on the type of plant you would like to
take, then feel free to get in touch and I could make more detailed
