I have been looking for a supplier of the rhizomes for a few months & have just stumbled on your page. Can someone let me know where I can get them (I am on the Gold Coast) I will need to build up a bed as we have very sandy soil. Any assistance will be gratefully received.

Hi Lyn, I live on the West Coast and I brought my first Yacons from Dayleys fruit tree nursery NSW. They are great people to deal with and have a great web site. Regards Robert Devine. 0400614698.

Type in Yacon for sale in Australia in google - Ebay - Gumtree - other companies - green harvest has very good info about them. Look around to get a good price. Some places want 10-15$ and the same again for postage. Could try Bunnings.
