Hi, I would like to try Jerusalem artichoke this year in my allotment. People seem to like starting the tubers, but I read you can also grow their seeds. I haven't seen the tubers in the shops here in Finland, but if I can have some seeds shipped to me, is there anything I should know need to know that makes growing from seeds different than growing from tuber?

Thanks.

The only place I could find them in okc was in the vegetable dept. at the grocery store...Unfortunately, the grasshoppers this last summer were looking for them too....not sure how to protect them but if you find out, let me know.

Try local markets or organic stores, sometimes you can order them there. If you have no succes I can mail you a few tubers from The Netherlands.

Thanks Johan, but I've just managed to get hold of some. I tried a high end supermarket and got lucky.
