Plant them deep (as you would any other brassica) and just pinch out the tips - I know they look leggy now but they will bush out.

You can also make hedgehogs out of them

That's ok Verdun - the reason I said to start this winter was just to speed things up a bit, and doing it bit by bit means that Mr BB won't have to go without any blooms at all for a whole year.

bizarre situation- what would you do?

Yes, I agree with Philippa and Viola Man - life's too short. 

It's annoying that the Committee weren't clear about what was happening - it looks as if they tried to please everyone, but we all know that can't be done.

As you say you've got your nice neighbour back and hopefully you and he can come to some sort of arrangment about the work you've done and the plants you've put in. 

HELLO FORKERS!
