How Tall are your Brussels Sprout

Posted: 02/09/2014 at 18:28

My Brussels Sprout seemed to have taken off like a rocket. I haven't done anything special to them to make them grow but they just seen to be very tall, they haven't even been bothered with Cabbage Whites either.  Here is photo with my husband stood by them, he is 5ft 7in. Has anyone else got tall Brussels or are mine just freakishly tall.

I always read this brilliant thread, haven't posted very often but thought you may like to see my two tone dahlia.

My tomatoes have been brilliant this year. I sowed the seeds in January in a heated Propagator and I have been picking them since July. I have bottled a lot of them and have got 15 bottles of tomatoes. They have all been grown in a greenhouse in Autopots so they are watered automatically and I have fed them two or three times a week. It has got to be the best crop I have had.

I really love Liver and onions, and if there is liver left over I love it cold in a sandwich. Now I know most will be screwing up their faces and saying yuk, but hey, don't knock it til you've tried it.

Fuchsia Gall Mite

I have asked about Fuchsia gall mite before on the forum, if you put fuchsia gall mite into search you can see a photo I uploaded before. I did try and pinch out the infected parts but it just kept coming back and I don't like to use chemicals. I did read up on it and it isn't nice. Like you Mike until I had it on my Fuchsias I had never heard of it. All my plants are free of it now, thank goodness.

I had fuchsia's that had this horrid disease last year. I had to destroy 7 of my lovely Fuchsia's it was just awful. I haven't seen it on the fuchsia's I have left this year so touch wood, it is gone.
