We haven’t had a chance to write a post for a couple of weeks, but there’s been lots going in!
These were planted in late January, but have been kept indoors as we are still getting a few sharp frosts here in Essex.
Firstly, they were growing in the lean to greenhouse with a little heat, but now they’ve been moved to the polytunnel. The first photo was two weeks ago, and the second today. It’s amazing how much they’ve grown! We’ve also put some cane supports in for each one now, as their haulms were getting a bit unruly. And we didn’t want them to break off!
We sowed our Purple Delicacy kohl rabi last week. These were sown into Seed and Modular compost in a quarter seed tray and covered with vermiculite. As kohl rabi is part of the brassica family, and therefore quite a hardy plant, they didn’t need to be germinated on the propagator. Instead, we covered them with a sheet of glass and some newspaper.
They had already germinated by this weekend!
So we pricked them out into 3″ pots into multipurpose compost.
