My Pm's are working now. At least I can send again.  It doesn't tell me that anything has arrived, I have to check each, they are mixed up.

Will broccoli sprout again next year?

If it survives the winter,and you feed it in spring,you should get useable spring greens from it, as fresh leaves. The summer broccoli type often don't survive the winter though.

 Cabbages, if you cut a cross in the stalk when you harvest it, will often grow new leaves that can be used, even if they are not hearted cabbages. It extends the season a bit.

Thanks, Daniel. I am sure we will all feel better for it.  Lets get back to gardening chitchat. As I have said before, we offer an opinion, which may or may not agree with someone elses viewpoint, because we all have different gardens and experiences. There is no need for slanging matches.

Thank You , Daniel.

The flamers always start at the weekend, when I presume there are no admin on?

Is there any way that they can be stopped in their tracks ?

That sounds like what I've got. I've never thought the maroon colour was up to much though. a bit like Pattys  Plum poppy.  Kind of dirty brown.   There is a double white one , but I've only ever seen it in books,and never for sale.

I have a clump of trillium I bought 20 years ago from Bressingham. It increases very slowly. Its getting overhung now, so I might move it with a big rootball.

Which variety have you got punkdoc?

Just had a phone call from OH. He's stuck on A1 outside London. Traffic horrendous. He will be lucky if there is anyone  there for this course at this rate.
