Thanks for all the advice, I have used my mums vac pack and tied some then frozen. I don't like having to freezer and store but it's the only green veg I can eat other than courgette.

How do I do this so they aren't squeeky. It's one of the only veg on my permitted diet and I would love to keep some to help me in the winter months when I can't grow my own. Or has anyone grown their own in winter??

Firstly I bow my head and apologise for this thread! It would seem that some tomfoolery has been afoot and the joke is on me! My sister thought it would be hilarious to swap my yellow tags for my red as I had 6 of each. My reds are yellow and my yellows are red!!! Unfortunately my red tubs are now yellow and 3 of my red dahlias have been sold thinking they were yellows!! (Sad)


Apparently she was waging war against my neatness and my neatly labelled pots and thought I would find it funny. Instead due to the volume of dahlias this year I out some out to sell to make compost money

moral of the story, no one is allowed in my garden unsupervised!!!
