I have spare galangal ginger roots. It is a good time to plant them now. Would like some exotic herbs or spices. The trouble is I have quite a few. Saffron bulbs would be welcome. I live in West Auckland.

Not sure how to do this, but if you would like to email me direct on we can arrange a swop or any other arrangements suitable to you.

And sorry to Ricardo, no Jizzy Green for swops in Auckland, only in Katikati.

Hi jizzy, I have been after some banana plants for ages. I am more than happy to pay postage or send seeds in return (have loads on offer, I sell on trademe, but the majority are asian green veg)
Comment by Ricardo Oscar Marques on May 29, 2011 at 8:29pm

I want artichoke bulbs, and love the banana, also I have mulch, plastic boxes, chicken and chicken poo.

Only a small problem, I am in Auckland.

Any other Jizy Green in Auckland?

Comment by Jizzy Green on May 29, 2011 at 8:17pm

I have plenty jerusalem artichoke bulbs available if anyone needs for seed.  Also have a few banana plants to be dug up if anyone if interested.  Ponga logs for edging.  Some plastic boxes for collecting harvests.

Does anyone have mulch they can spare?  Or chicken poos?

Horseradish going spare - Have just dug mine out to put into bigs pots as I'm not getting nice straight roots.

Have a bag of about twenty roots of various sizes.

Enough to fill half a dozen 30 cm pots

Hi Ricardo

I would love to say yes to your offer.  I do not have a lot to offer at present, only some frozen plums from our summer crop.  I can be contacted on 021 882582  Many thanks.
