just bought and planted some at the w/end in my raised bed and as they're quite young and dainty (2.5" tall), i'm wondering whether i'd get them to thicken to a decent size for cropping next spring. Or should I have planted them in summer time when i was too busy to have remembered them!??? i didn't have the foresight to have thought about my autumn plans back then, everything was just on the go!wink

They've got 2 chances if they stay fairly small just stirfry them

Seed catalogues are responsible for more unfulfilled fantasies than the web and playboy combined . (after Michael Perry)
