Flower Sprouts

Posted: 22/03/2016 at 09:59
Just southwest of Norwich, but we're in Lincs today.
I saw those flower sprouts in a magazine. Not grown them myself but I'd grow them as ordinary Brussels sprouts. When you pot them up you can bury the stems up to the lower leaves, that'll stop them flopping and you'll get nice sturdy plants.

Should I Plant or Pot

Ah, but that was in Devon. Milder than many parts of the uk.

I would pot them on individually into small pots. They're too small to be planted out and they won't grow to their full potential if they remain close to each other.
What are they?

As I understand it aronia and apple are both rosaceae so presumably compatible?

Just read the news. Thoughts with the Belgians.

We're at MIL's in a little village in south Lincolnshire, near Stamford. It's lovely and the season is a bit ahead of us in Norfolk so hedgerows are getting quite green.

Lovely sitting here by the inglenook, listening to the jackdaws on the chimney and the church clock chiming the quarter hours. An idyllic sunny spring morning.

I agree with Buttercup. You have an aronia on Apple roots. The roots will supply water and nutrition. That's all.

Morning all. Slept like a log here. We'll be setting off for home later this morning and then back into our routine too.
