I live in east Vancouver, with a front and back yard, on a north-south lot. When I was young, a friend of ours on the Sunshine Coast had a thriving salal bush, in her north yard. I was a kid, but I' quite sure it was 3 or 4 feet tall. My sister knows of one in west van that she says is over 5 feet tall. I want to grow one for the berries - I want salal berries and I don't want to have to crawl on my hands and knees to pick them! I talked to Murray nursery months ago and they said they sometimes get them in, but now they have apparently gone out of business. Today I talked to a woman at another nursery (I won't name names) and she said the bush is exactly the same plant as the ground cover, only in fertile soil and left to grow. Frankly, I don't beleive her. I looked on the internet, but didn't have much success. Does anyone out there know whether there is a difference, and where I can get the kind that will grow into a bush?? Thank you so much. -Miranda M.
