jo47, bag compost is NOT the same as the compost you make yourself. Bag compost has no nutritional value at all except that added by the company when they prepare the 'compost' for bagging, and it is only supposed to be effective for up to six weeks.

Now, I agree bagged manure - any manure - has value.

The shoots should be pinched out at the end of June - before mid-summer's day. Then they have time to grow lots of new shoots before winter. Make a note on your 2016 diary!

Peppers freeze really well. Just cut them in half and remove the seeds and stem. Then freeze as they are. No blanching necessary, though they will thaw out soft.

What to do with this broccoli?

Leave the whole plant, it may, just may, give you another crop; but eat the shoots sooner, don't leave them until they flower.

I know a small basket of green chillies all ripened just sitting on the worktop. Are peppers the same?
