I am planning to buy a rambling rose and see they are sold as bare root or container grown. Is there any beneficial benefit in which you buy ? Does one establish its self better or is there really no difference ? Any advice very welcome.

Sweet corn

The Kernels on my sweet corn are still white although the tassles are dark brown. Will they turn yellow if left longer or has the lack of sunshine during the summer stopped them ripening. Does them being white stop them tasting sweet.?

Carrot bed

I have never had success with carrots in beds and now grow them in tubs where  I get good results. They are easy to protect from carrot fly as well. This year I had excellent results leaving a tub in the greenhouse where they were started earlier that would have been possible sowing out side.

Lokelani, I would say that you have done every thing right except to have them in an unheated greenhouse so early. The night time temps are too low so early in the year. I put mine in one mid to late April depending how the temperture is. May be yours dont like going on holidays.
