Does anyone grow these as I'd like to give them a go. If so when and how are they from seed or tubers and where do people source them from.
many Thanks

i tried with 2 lots last year failed 100%!! they need to be kept in water for a while to grow roots they are a hot climate plant, apparently they are the same family as bindweed!! i manage to grow that really well though! :lol:
