In the uk it is marketed under the brandname of tenderstem. In USA it is marketed as a brandname of broccolini.  Mr Fothergills sells seeds under the name  Broccoli tenderstem F1 green inspiration. I hope that helps.

What I grew was Brukale. It produced tiny cabbages all the way up the stem, a bit like brussel sprouts . I think the seed was from Marshalls.

Lanky seedlings

You can cut the leaves as seedlings and use in a salad. Its too late in the year to get useable roots.

I hope your lot get better soon, yviestevie.

I was underwhelmed by the viking museum. So I went shopping. I was going to treat myself to a bit of Royal Copenhagen hand painted china. Then I picked up the box and saw " made in Thailand"' . That coupled with the extortionate price , made me put it down again.

Off out for dinner now. A lot of the festival seems to be an excuse for bad kareoke. I've heard cats sing better.

Kew sounds good. Its not bad from where I live. Straight down the M1, then round the ring road. If himself comes and drives, there is room for a couple of the yorkshire contingent in the back. I've often seen it in Spring, its at least two weeks earlier there than in the Midlands. The magnolias are magnificent.  I suspect the autumn colours could be good.

Today I'm off to the viking museum.

Whatever you do, make sure daffs are earlies and tulips late. Last year i had tall tulips flowering before short late daffs. It got a bit messy.

Sever with a sharp knife close to the main plant. Let it dry for an hour or two. Pot into gritty compost. Water it in once then leave it , it should root in a few weeks.
