Brussels Sprout- How high do they grow?

Posted: 02/05/2012 at 08:27

Hi Everyone, I am planning to grow a couple of 'Brest F1' Brussels Sprout in one of my raised beds, but I am having concerns that I will have sufficient growing room, as I have Enviromesh, supported by a wooden framework, around all my RB's. The height clearance is about 30" from soil to mesh. Is this enough, or will I need to have a re-think. Thanks

Squash - Yellow Leaves

Hi Bob, Many thanks for your advice, I realised I had sown a little early when I read the section on squash, in 'Vegetable Growing-Month By Month' at the week-end. I did initially move it into my greenhouse last week, but decided to move it back inside at the week-end, due to the cool weather. As a precaution, I decided to sow a couple of additional seeds on April 23rd, the first of those has now popped it's head thru the compost. The timing of that one is no doubt the better of the two sowings. I am also planning to transplant them to large containers, and grow them in my greenhouse - fingers crossed.

Squash - Yellow Leaves

Posted: 28/04/2012 at 16:54

Hi everyone, I have been growing a squash plant from seed (turks turban), it is still inside, in a 5" pot, and is at the 6 leaf stage. It appears to be doing ok, but I am concerned that the first two leaves are turning slightly yellow. Does anyone have an opinion on this, am I doing something wrong, or is this to be expected? I water it every few days, and the soil appears to be moist. Thanks.
