So l was wondering if Calluna vulgaris / Scottish Highland Heather is in australia? I'm interested in making Wild Heather Mead. As far as l know there are warnings that it has the potential to be a serious weed. So its not something l might expect to be sold at a nursery, as far as l know. Another interesting thought is this, heather is said to have a white coating known as "fogg". I think its a type of fungi though l could be wrong. Would anyone know if the heather (if its in the country) also have this Fogg? Or its strictly limited to Highland Scottish Heather? Main reason for asking this is so l might wash my heather well before use, as recommended. Plus its a brew l plan to share with friends, so want to avoid unintentionally brewing fogg also. If its a weed l shouldnt need to grow it (and spread a weed). Instead if l can l would love to collect it in the wild if possible. Making the brew semmi wild crafted and reducing the weeds numbers (in a small way). Thanks for anyones informations and insight. Im in the Upper Hunter Valley, NSW.
