Aroids in London

Hi everybody!

   My name is Lisa and I posted a message on here a while back and everyone 
was so helpful I thought I'd try it again. I'm planning a trip to England in 
September and I've read several posts on this list that have mentioned Sri 
Lankan markets in London that have large Amorphophallus tubers for sale. Can 
anyone point me in the direction of one of these markets. I've already been 
told that if I think I'm spending the entire trip in England looking for a 
Sri Lankan market that sells Amorphophallus tubers that I'm sadly mistaken. 
Also I was wondering if anyone knows of interesting gardens in England, 
besides Kew Gardens, that have Aroids (particularly, Amorphophallus or 
Arisaema)? If no one can help me I fear I'm going to be dragged to every 
topiary filled English garden in the country!! Not that there's anything 
wrong with topiary or English Gardens but I find Aroids to be much more 
interesting :)!
  One more quick question for anyone out there from England. Due to the foot 
and mouth disease outbreak what can I expect when I get to England if I want 
to rent a car and drive around the countryside? I've been reading on the 
Internet that trails and parks are shut down, are there still places to go 
where you can hike and see things? Any information would be greatly 
  Thanks in advance for everyone's time!
