Don't know this one, but the general rule is that those with thin strappy leaves are the hardiest. e.g. Garnett. Thick leaves are often tender types.

Planted 3 Geranium Anne Folkard, Sowed runner beans in beds and in a pot under wigwams. Planted loads of violas in an old wheelbarrow , old buckets and watering cans... all with holes in them!!

Repositioned pots of hostas in shade on new terrace near house. Loads of watering. Have we ever had to do so much watering at this time of year before?

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
