I have had some disasters already this year my cucumber plants grown from seed died a wet rotting death. So I decided as time was getting on I would buy a slightly more established plant from a garden centre and have a second go! It isn’t looking great either to be honest, but not dead yet.
I had real difficultly last year growing Cavolo Nero from seed, everytime the seedlings died it was very frustrating. So this year I raised some seed indoors and some in the greenhouse. the ones in the house faired much better and I am the proud owner of two coming on very nicely plants.
