Castor Beans - Need 5 or 6

tigerlily_al(7a)January 23, 2011


I've tried ordering from 5 different seed companies and they have either discontinued selling the castor beans or are out. Does anyone have a few to share? If so, please send email to

The seeds I gathered from my purple leaf plants last fall were thrown in the trash by mistake when I cleaned out my storeroom in December. Thanks very much.

You might also, just wait and see if you get any volunteers. I had a few plants years ago and remember pulling up a lot of babies the following year (or two?).

I can send you some. Castor grows wild here. We always used it as a shade plant or wind barrier. I think I even have some that I collected down by the Indian River last year...
I don't think they've set seed yet...(gives me a goooood reason to ride my bike out to the Lone Cabbage and check though!
