Looking for Gunnera Leaf

trashywoman(5)September 16, 2011

I do some leaf casting but have had no luck growing the Gunnera here. It was a dry summer and I was recuperating from breast cancer treatments and didn't water as I should so I lost the one I had planted. Does anyone have a large leaf they would mail to me? I will pay for postage. It should just be wetted and wrapped in wet paper towels, then saran wrap,maybe a trash bag for extra protection, loosely rolled and put in one of those tube mailers. I would be very happy if someone could help me out. The leaf does not have to be perfect. Holes can be patched.

You can buy gunnera manicata seeds online; one nursery selling them is Pase Seeds in upper New York State (google them for website). Sorry, I don't have any gunnera although I've been thinking about getting 1 plant.
And I bet you're getting more energy back, now that your chemo or radiation is over. You WILL completely recover, as I did. And go on to make more fabulous gardens!
