I can buy seeds from all over the world, but am regularly tempted by catalogues that have what I would like and cannot buy!
They do not have the right to send anything else than seeds to Eurpe.

Where can I get some of those edible lily bulbs and other roots and tubers?
I am off gluten and almost off cereals, and I like to have root food.

Thanks

Up!
So many american readers?
Stephen, do you have some eurpean addresses to share?

As I mentioned, I am also looking for walking onions bulbets, and can't find any.

This is a REAL PROBLEM to grow perenials: they are often better reproduced by other ways than seeds!

For more unusual perennials, the RHS Plant Finder is a good start: https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/search-form

Here you go, an example in Germany... It's a long link, I hope it works for you. Alium cepa proliferum is the walking / Egyptian onion. The website domain looks dodgy but it's legit.

I'm able to buy a really nice selection, mostly of seeds, but also tubers, from http://www.dreschflegel-saatgut.de/ - they're interesting as they're kind of a cooperative of farmers. You can make a single order and your package will come with packets from several different organizations. http://www.dreschflegel-shop.de/

Of course, Martin Crawford will ship to the continent. Shipping costs are terrible, but the plants come very well packaged: http://www.agroforestry.co.uk/plantorders.html

No way to find it on your blog!
Can you please give the direct link to the page?

I had forgotten about agroforestry, yes they do have interresting things, so they run out of stock rather quick each year.
They have mashua tubers and some allium and other seeds.

About german pages: what a pity they do not translate anything to english, or at least put the latin names so that it can be a little more international....

Poyntzfield Herbs! Just the most amazing range of edible and medicinal plants inc. some roots/ tubers. Catalogue takes some looking through.

Realseeds has a few tho not that unusual now.
 
See where your hand is? Not there. It's next to this tiny ad:
