how can i grow nectarines please
I'm not sure you can in this country, unless you have a large heated indoor space built to do so?
Move to Italy - I remember a holiday there with my children in a hill village above Firenze, with my children being stuffed with fresh nectarines from their gardens by the neighbouring villagers ..... ahhhhhh!
The shops are full of them!
But the ones in English shops are small and hard, and they tell you to take them home and they will ripen - but they don't ripen at home, they just get soft - not the same thing at all
Ah well, enough reason to live here. They're big and fat and juicy. It runs down your chin. Sluuurrrrrrp.
It seems you can grow them here providing you give them the right conditions (and I assume live in the south).
