Talkback: Seed Club - early seed sowing

Posted: 01/03/2013 at 17:59
I have sown seeds in the house for brussels, leeks, onions, sweet peas and parsnip, as well as tomatoes.....all are doing well so I will pot them on this weekend but as my greenhouse is not heated, should I take extra precautions before putting them in there? My sweet peas are about 4/5 inches high in organic pots so I can plant it all straight into the prepared ground.....too early?

Horsradish Thongs......to be or not to be

Horsradish is sold in thongs....just as other items are sold as tubers, corms, whatever.

No, rarely. But as I hadn't signed in my response did not get captured. Here it is again, or something like it. As the thread had been take 'off course', it needed closing as my enquiries had received pertinent and helpful answers in regard to growing horsradish. I have decided to follow that advice. Have since bought ready made horsradish sauce from Mr. Waitrose - much safer. Don't need to discuss thongs per se, hardly enlightenng topic anyway.

Goodness, thank you....I'm convinced that in my dedicated and relatively small growing spaces and the woods beyond, I had better be responsible and not plant it after all!

Thanks, maybe that's the best solution.....that or buying horsradish sauce in a jar!

Has anyone got any tales of caution, or remedies relating to growing horsradish in the garden. Does it grow well in pots for example? It sounds as if it might be rampant if planted into the ground? I can't find any information on Gardeners' World on growing horsradish, so maybe this speaks for itself!

Hi there, yes, I am very lucky! I hope to grow brussels, leeks, savoy cabbage, parsnips, pumpkin, potatoes.....as well as courgettes, salads, tomatoes, cucumber etc.....runner beans, peas. I do have a small garden bed in our back garden as well so will be planting there too, and a wooden truckle! Get the picture! My kind neighbours have a small holdng so they already grow lots of their own veg....and keep chickens and turkeys. I shall be growing marigolds in and around the beds to deter pests, and have plans for a trellis wall of sweet peas, all being well....it's a exciting prospect.
