Or Walmart where it has been seen from time to time.  Escargot was shown on 
the Martha Stewart program and gained in fame in the US via Ms. Stewart.  If 
she says it is a worthy plant to grow, it is assured celebrity status.  
Escargot was supposed to be bred to overcome the difficulties of growing the 
rex class indoors with low humidity.  I don't know if that is the case but it 
is around to buy easily.  If you operate your greenhouse or indoor garden 
space, whatever type, at temperatures around 50 degrees more or less with 
higher day temps. they don't do well, the rex types.
