Can I grow amaranth with a matured branch, leaving in water for few days. Will they develop roots so that I can plant them?? If not, I can buy a bunch from Chinese vegetable shop. They do not have picketed seeds. If not, Where can I get the seeds??

I have a small amount of seed from the locsl seedsaver network and a healthy six plants which will produce more. Happy to send seeds through mail. [email protected]

Try Eden Seeds for any of your seeds in Australia. They are non-hybrid & organic too.
