Hi folks. Anyone here grow chinese cabbage? Ive grown them from seed successfully from summer through to autumn. Theyve all gone to seed as the weather has been too warm. I have more to put out now hoping the cooler weather will suit. Any advice or experiences from anyone appreciated.

I have grown pak choi a few times. You cannot go wrong really. Easy to grow and can be cooked several ways.

My experience with pak Choi is that spring plantingís go to seed very quickly but those sown after midsummers day last a lot better and get much bigger. Pests not a problem, other than cabbage whites and small whites.
