Side crimped eh Dove? Very authentic... best to avoid any problems with the pasty police.

Mine, which are in pots standing on gravel, seed into the gravel and germinate, producing healthy plants. Much easier than collecting the seed myself etc.

Fb2 you must let them die down naturally to ensure they absorb all the goodness in the leaves back into the bulb, to give you a fighting chance of a repeat show the following year. When they are totally browned off, you can tidy them up. Takes about 6 weeks. If you leave one of the stalks showing you have a marker as to where they are.

Alternatively take a photo?

Square tubs stand better than round ones I find.

My bulbs in pots are well down, and side by side supporting each other. In preference I would not buy very tall varieties.

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.
