where can I purchase some choko vines which have been potted or bagged to help me get started. I live on the east coast about 100 klms from sydney but have the room to grow a healthy vine with perhaps cucumbers. Thank You

Just buy a couple of chokos from the green grocer. Keep them in warm shade until they sprout then half bury them. Mine did much better in clay than sand.
