You might want to try some of the folks at historic sites in the US - Plimoth Plantation (Massachusetts) has some buildings with thatch - I believe they grown their own and do the work, of course. I believe Jamestown (Virginia) also had some thatched buildings. They may be able to direct you to a source for seed if you want to grow your own. Sue Evans The problem with using wheat now is finding long straw wheat. Reed thatching has come in to greater favor where traditionally it was relegated mostly to the East, because of the price of labor to get a roof thatched. BTW, you might also think of other sources for your thatch.
