I would like to grow the Yacon instead of buying syrup but I'm having trouble locating a plant/s. I am in Wangaratta Vic. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks :)

I have just purchase some rhizomes from a lady in NSW. I'm ready to plant them. I have her contact details at home if you wish to followup a seller. Email me if you wish to have her contact details.

I purchased the rhizomes from the Diggers Club. They may not be in stock yet but they do supply stock in pots when available. Cheers
