Bolting red cabbage

Posted: 29/03/2017 at 20:47

I always think of red cabbage as a winter veg, to be sown in the spring, planted out in the summer and harvested in the autumn/winter.  


I imagine that having come through the winter, your cabbages have experienced the temperatures warming up and decided that they're in their second year of growing and it's time to flower and produce seed to further the species.  


Have a look at your seed packet ... when does it suggest you should sow the seeds?

I don't think sweetcorn would be growing so well outside in current UK temperatures - it needs warmer weather than this to make that sort of growth.

I know what you mean Topbird ... we've not yet been caught in a rainstorm with the top down and a tree sticking out ... but it may happen one day ... and the Megane doesn't have leather seats

You pruned down to the next bud?  That shouldn't be a problem - the bud will grow a new shoot which will take on the 'leadership role'.  There might be a very slight kink in the tip but you really won't notice it.


Enjoy your tree

See original post

 It was downhill all the way .......... and my destination was right next to the football stadium, and in those days, the first team players would meet up there around that time in the morning before getting in the coach and going to the training ground, and I was 18
