EU members: Looking for Walking Onions
would anyone have a few walking onions (Egyptian onions) to spare?
I had some for a good 25 years, brought them from place to place, had them here in Ireland in a polytunnel - always the first greens of the year - but forgot they were there when I put my cockerels in the polytunnel in the midst of winter. Duh.
Happy to pay or swap for some nice seeds etc.
iv got some
my friend has better ones
send me a postpack
i dont think quarantine will let you send me anything
is there a traditional use for hawthawn wood>?
Please don't send things internationally unless you know it is definitely ok (I say this from a county that sprays whole areas with pesticides from airplanes when we get new foreign organisms here). Biosecurity matters.
Ute, have you asked on the UK permie forum?
Thanks for replying! Excuse poor ignorant Irish peasant, umh, what's a postpack and how does one send it? Do you mean something like a prepaid package?
Are you saying you can send stuff out but I can't send anything life ag related in (I know Australia has very strict rules)?
re hawthorn wood (Crataegus): yes, indeed our friend Gabriel Casey (Lisdoonvarna) makes wonderful rustic chairs out of hawthorn and blackthorn (Prunus spinosa). I think in the past the wood was also used for walking sticks and such. Why do you ask?
To be honest, I don't know that one. Where is it? I have asked on the Permaculture Ireland facebook page but no joy.
