    Which varieties do you like? I've got 'Santoh' from Real Seeds but it's more like a floppy lettuce. Bought some 'White F1' from T&M to try this year instead.

    I've tried lots of different varieties in the polytunnel and outside, there is a variety called Kuro which grows OK, but have pretty much given up on standard Pak Choi and instead now grow Tai Sai, which is like Pak Choi on steroids and it is much much easier to grow here in the UK, Real Seeds have it I think.
    Each head can grow a good 12" high, it is very good for all your asian cookery needs too
    Death to all slugs!
