Our vegi shop have cut the tops down so there is no tuft of green, if I buy one and plant it will it grow back?

If you mean, pineapples, simply cut the top (the tuft of green, with a little bit of the pineapple) off a pineapple, and plant it. Presto, pineapple plant. Tropical, so frost tender.

Does any one know how I can grow a pineapple plant or where to get one to get me started?

you can get different grades of it - finer for seeds, coarser for potting up. Coconut fibre has an advantage over standard potting mixes in that it is sterile.

Moggy your hint on coconut fibre sounds good, I haven't had any experience of using it yet, but it sounds like a good idea. My jiffy pot is working well for my Brahmi cutting, I'm keeping it in a dish of water, keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks for the hint Tara, I'm going to write down all the helpful hints I'm getting from this site. As well as saving money it helps recycle
