  1. Jerusalem Artichokes

    by , 01-08-2008 at 11:24 PM
    I have watched Carol Klein's gardening programme this week and am very interested in trying out Jerusalem Artichokes but don't want to purchase huge quantities from a gardening centre. Is there anyone out there who has a few tubers spare for me to try first. I am willing to pay for the postage. Thanks in advance.

    beetroot
    potatoes
    lettuce
    spring onions
    cabbages
    cauliflowers
    cucumbers

    If I had more space I'd love to be able to produce more than one crop of sweetcorn in a year, but it means that we savour those we get even more.

    by , 28-07-2008 at 01:03 PM
    ecstatic, i actually have a decent sized watermelon on my plant. this is my first time growing any kind of melon and i am well chuffed. just hope it continues with my new baby melons that are appearing. i must admit i went a bit daft when pollinating it, i must have put about 10 male flowers to the female one!
    Beginners luck i think!!
