Hi Rob Did you get your Witloof seeds here in South Africa, if yes where?

Hoi, Ik ben een Vlaming wonende in Pretoria en kan nergens witloof kopen. Hebt u al een kweker gevonden en indien wel , wilt u aub een adres geven waar ik het kan kopen. Groetjes Moniqiue (Hi, I am a Fleming living in Pretoria and nowhere to buy chicory. Have you already found a breeder and if so, would you please give an address where I can buy it. Greetings Moniqiue)
