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.

Thanks,

Regina

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!
