They like rotting onions at the bottom of the veg rack too.

We planted a Victoria plum at our last place - we had loads of plums every year - by the third year we had to prop the branches up - enough for crumbles and a load of jam as well as picking them and eating fresh from the tree.

Photo's a bit blurry - maybe you've got the freezing fog that we're shrouded in?

They'll be fine - they'll grow a new rosette of leaves at the base of the plant before they put up a flowering spike in 2017. 


Is crop rotation absolutely necessary?
