Oh Jo47 you are so organised! So much food for thought - many thanks indeed for all that, I will have a good think now but I am rather partial to "the weeping fig and spend the rest of my life fiddling with the blinds" idea........

Hi there Philippa and yes, as much as I like the idea, citrus and olives would probably be unsuitable. There are venetian blinds which filter the light and would be easy to adjust when the sun is strongest. I will look at Dracenas too and see which be happiest. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi all

I have a lovely south facing bay window in the kitchen which is crying out for a pretty tree to soak up the all day sun. There are no radiators in there so the air is nice and fresh but it does get warm when cooking. I'm thinking about an olive or lemon but have never had a tree indoors before and obv would prefer a tree that is happy in that situ.

I haven't been on this site for aaaaages so apols if this subject has been covered before and I missed it.

Thanks all for any responses.

Favourite vegetable to grow?

Posted: 04/04/2014 at 13:26

Oooh good idea Artjak - will probably give the soil a rest from brocolli next year and will certainly think about dividing the plot in two and rotate the crops.  I like the sound of chard - or anything with a large yield.  There is little point in using such a small space for something that takes a while to grow then gets dug up once.  I want stuff that comes back and back over time to maximise the space.  Thanks for your response!

I have a raised bed and last year stuffed it full of broccoli (grown from seed).  It worked a treat and I was eating the spears all through late summer.  Also, the leaves, which are massive, are delicious used the way you would use cabbage, spinach etc.  Deffo doing them again this year.

I believe you shouldn't plant them in the same space year on year though I've no choice as I don't have any other room for them.  Will give them another go and think of something else to do next year. 

Any suggestions would be welcome

Will broccoli sprout again next year?

Many thanks.  The leaves are actually delicious so will go with that.

Hi there

I grew brocolli from seed this year and it was great - have been harvesting it all summer.  It's just about finished now but the plants look excellent.  I'm thinking about pruning off all the last little spears they are going to grow and leaving the plants and, maybe, the plants will survive winter and produce more next year?  I know strictly speaking they are annuals but you never know...... anyone else done this?

Many thanks all, sorry if this has been asked before, but I haven't been on here in a while.

regards

What do I do with my broccoli which never flowered?

Posted: 10/12/2012 at 15:50

Haha! that is an uplifting story!  I shall take a leaf out of your book (i.e. be too busy to bother with it) and have champion broccoli next year!

Nice one.
