Hi folks in Spain and Portugal
I am looking for some seeds to try to grow some permie specials here in Anjou France
Firstly sweet oaks so I can eat some acorns
Secondly tiger nuts also known as chewfa for eating raw and making cooking oil
Thirdly liquorish as I fancy making some sweets
Am willing to pay postage etc or swap for anything I can get here in France that folks are looking for

If you don't find any over the summer, remind me in the autumn and I'll collect some sweet oak acorns for you.

Have you tried the chewfa ? It's often made into a milk type product.

I have heard that my oak tree is the sweetest in the valley (what ever that means), I could send you some when they are ripe?

hello, David , were you able to find quercus rotundifolia ?  i bought seeds recently  from a source in france , also seen seedlings and plugs of them available from french based nursery ---(but he doesnt ship to ireland) --could be quick way for you to get a jump start on them, theres an american site selling seed/acorn sometimes  with bur oak holm oak hybrids and some others that they select for sweetish or low tannins ---but seem to be sold out very quickly----i am also thinking of grafting sweet onto common oak ,but have no idea if the compatibility between evergreen and non will work,cheers
 
It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
