Only just starting to grow veg here, so these are tips from a rookie. This year we used radishes and cut and come again salad leaves whenever we had a bit of spare space, and next year we are going to follow Monty's advice and grow a couple of courgette plants on the ground below the sweetcorn once that has got tall enough not to be swamped.

NGC - if you like MD's writings the the Prickotty Bush is one of my favourite books ever.  Out of print, but can sometimes pick up secondhand copies on Amazon.  Love the Katherine Swift Morville books too - beautifully written. Christopher Lloyd writes very readable books too - the well tempered garden is my favourite

Should I plant Victoria plum?

Posted: 01/11/2014 at 18:04

We have Victoria plums, one planted 5 years ago, two last winter.  All are doing well.  you can thin the fruit out if it looks like the crop is going to be too heavy.  Only problem is that all the fruit ripens in the space of a fortnight - but cut them in half and they freeze very well
