hi Erin,

i did not fare too well with my skirret either.

it just kinda disappeared among the other vegetation..

not that i remembered what to do with it when..

i have a few asian pear saplings if you have room for a tree.

good luck on getting a baby plant.

Hi all!

I organized a group purchase of skirret a few years ago, and distributed at least 15 skirret plants out to people in Vancouver - anyone have a baby they're willing to part with in the spring?  I moved, and had an understanding with the people that bought my house that I'd come back in the fall and get the plants that would rather not be transplanted in August.. but they weeded out the skirret :/

If anyone has a baby, or has tried skirret and didn't really like it, please let me know.  Mine didn't really like the heavy acidic soil I planted them in, and so they never got big enough that I would risk tasting them.

If everyone is happy with their skirret, and no one has any to give up, perhaps someone could share a story of their skirret?  Now that I don't have any, I'm wondering how that experiment worked out.

I'm in Vancouver for the next week.
