Hi, I live in Adelaide. Appart from Bunnings do you know any other contact where I could get seeds or plant to start growing it myself? I'm mexican and tomatillo is like the 'heart' of mexican dishes so can't wait to grow it! :)

Hi Mara. I grew a bumper crop of tomatillo last summer and saved thousands of seeds. I'm happy to share or swap. This month I've put in a tomatillo hedge of 11 plants; I'm hoping people will pass by, curious, pick a few and start conversations.

Hi Mara. You could try Hillside Herbs at Mclaren Vale. I get most of my herbs/veg from these guys. Always healthy plants and good knowledgeable service. If they don't have any, they may at least know where to get some.

You can try some of the nurseries around Adelaide; Garden Grove or Virginia Nursery could have them. Otherwise, the Seed Collection lists tomatillo seeds online, but is currently out of stock.

Internet - Boondie Seeds - type in Tomatillo in the search box in top right hand corner.
